Apartment in Katayama by Mitsutomo Matsunami, photo © by © Mitsutomo Matsunami

Architecture and design blog “What we do is Secret” has a great series of articles about a fantastic apartment building in Katayama, Japan by architect Mitsutomo Matsunami. Despite (or because of) the fact that the building blatantly ignores the context of its surroundings, its elegant facade and stylish architecture make it a joy to look at. And while one may argue that the project is designed to squeeze every available square meter out of its ridiculously small site, you cannot deny that it does this with incredible style.
