The Japanese study alx. he designed “on the cherry blossom”, a three-story house on the corner of a residential street in Tokyo. using two neighboring cherry blossom trees as a design element in the project, the dwelling is limited in its interaction at street level but opens with a large floor-to-ceiling windowed front on the top floor.

Composed of multiple cubic volumes fitted together, the design offers the least amount of floor space at street level, but grows incrementally as you ascend to the third floor, where the dining room opens up to the cherry blossoms outside that form the backdrop to the space.
