Life in Spyaral

Life in Spyaral is a minimalist home located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Hideaki Takayanagi. The concept of the home was to find the right balance between private space and open environments. With a facade made of glass, half of the home is exposed to the outside while the other half is submerged from the other buildings. As the name suggests, the most distinctive feature of the home is its spiraling staircase, which can be seen from the street.
