LUZ shirokane

japanese practice naoya kawabe architect & associates has sent us images of 'LUZ shirokane', 
a multi-storey housing complex in tokyo, japan. contrary to conventional layouts where
the area of the individual units are maximized, the building inserts a generously-sized
common space at the core of its design to encourage a level of communication and transparency 
between the tenants.
