Description Change this

This renovation project carried our by Schemata Architects involved the refurbished of an apartment block that was built in the post war period of high economic growth in Japan. The building was originally designed to provide 30 residential rooms using a housing module called ‘nLDK’, an efficient system widely used in Japan.

The standardized series of spaces was redesigned to provide accommodation suitable for a complexity of contemporary lifestyles. The design principle that was followed was to only remove elements within the site. The layout of each apartment was improvised on site, without having drawn their plans in advance.
