Kengo Kuma and Associates has accomplished Miyanomori, a staggered housing improvement on the backside of the Okura Mountain within the metropolis of Sapporo, Japan.

Consisting of 15 houses, the event’s staggered plan was designed to offer residents with pure gentle and scenic views.

Commenters weren’t bought on the mission. One thought the concept that one resident’s balcony is one other resident’s roof was “unsettling”, whereas one other thought the steps have been “too steep”.
