Exterior of ARK Hills Sengokuyama Residence(photograph taken in August, 2012)

The main image was that of 
a single f lower blooming 
atop verdant hills.

I envisioned the unique culture which would bloom from this residence in my architectural design. The site is at Roppongi, an area with an international ambience but also a residential area. So I designed a smooth curve at the upper layers which tapered off as it neared the apex, intending for a gentle expression in harmony with the existing townscape.
