Sou Fujimoto's Tokyo House

Iwan Baan snapped these photos of this apartment complex in Tokyo. It was designed by Sou Fujimoto and it consists of five housing units with each having two or three rooms shaped like a traditional house. In theory it looks cool how the rooms are connected by external stairs, but in practice getting from one room to another could get a tad annoying at times. I love the way it looks though.

Relatedly, Designboom had an interview a few years back with the architect.
