Christoph Kapeller in collaboration with Matthias Koensgen and Adriana Kapeller.
The project responds to the client’s need to create a snow-free, livable environment in the middle of Aomori. In order to take advantage of the beautiful views of ocean and nearby mountains, we proposed two condominium towers.
At ground level a glazed, indoor concourse level, that contains lush gardens, shopping and places to sit and relax, connects two towers. At the center of each of the towers, a series of six-story atrium spaces provides additional community activities such as library, workout space, pool and performance space.
