    Default Concrete Apartment in Japan

    Concrete apartment by Airhouse Design Office features display space for "precious clothes"

    Raw concrete surfaces dominate inside this stark apartment in Nagoya, Japan, that Japanese studio Airhouse Design Office has renovated for a fashion lover.
    Keiichi Kiriyama of Airhouse Design Office was asked to redesign the interior of the 40-year-old House in Jiyugaoka to suit the lifestyle of a resident who "has a passion for fashion and loves trying on clothes or displaying newly bought clothes".
    The architect began by obliterating the original rectilinear layout, making way for a series of angular partitions that create irregularly shaped rooms. At the centre of these, he added a wide corridor that doubles up as a walk-in wardrobe.
    "We thought it was a shame to completely hide away the precious clothes," explained Kiriyama. "The room functions as a passage as well as a display storage and a hide-away storage, and the space continuously changes depending on the situation or season."
    Glass screens slides back and forth in front of the display spaces, allowing easy access to the ceiling-mounted metal rails. There is also a special closet for storing shoes and a mannequin for showing off complete outfits.

    the idea of the closet is cool if you have beautiful clothes and keep them hung up really nicely.

    For a Japanese apartment it's huge. I just get depressed from looking at the photos.

    I like it, but imagine it would be freezing in there.

    I'd feel like I was in a prison or a parking garage. Either way, it's uncomfortable.

    If anyone has ever wondered where Red Skull lived, this might have been it.
