On the rooftop of Villa Bianca

A distinctive housing complex built in 1964 – is a small space called the “observation room.” We decided to use it as a place for experimentation and call it the Kinfolk Case Study Room.

About

In 1964, the year Tokyo first hosted the Olympics, a startlingly unique housing complex was built in the Jingumae district of Harajuku: Villa Bianca (White House). It was the realization of design ideas for housing which Kanzo Ishida, founder of Kowa Shoji Co., Ltd., a real estate developer, had gathered on a trip to Europe and the United States and later shared with architect Eiji Hotta. Villa Bianca houses a total of 45 units. The exterior design, consisting of a number of stacked, cube-like containers, impressed many at the time, and was featured as a paragon of the modern housing complex in various international publications, most notably LIFE.
