The Flatiron Building

  • Posted 85 months Ago

Recently completed by the Eastern Design Office is The Flatiron Building - a unique apartment building constructed in the Youkaichi district in Shiga, Japan. Inspired by the shape of the land the property needed to be built on (no one wanted the land for several years), the apartment building features a sharp acute-angle at one end. By filling the land as much as possible, the building manages to cram 567 sqm of space into the 261 sqm plot.
