In the heart of Tokyo’s fashionable Omotesando district, the T Residence exploits a corner location with oblique vies to open spaces, together with extraordinary views from the upper most floors and roof terrace. These view and daylight access opportunities were amongst the influences on the shaping of the building and the articulation of its mass, as well as its internal configuration which places the living spaces on the uppermost floor. The entry hall and grand stair hall are illuminated by skylights. The open kitchen and dining are contiguous with the living room which is adorned by an open fireplace. A mall rumpus room, enclosable by floor to ceiling smoked glass doors allows expansion of the dining room and opens to the third floor terrace and broad external stair leading up to an expansive roof terrace equipped with an outdoor kitchen cabinet and blessed with 360 degree city views. The master bedroom suite includes a built-in, custom dressing counter which leads past concealed sliding doors to an ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi and garden views. The dressing area adjoins a spacious walk-in closet off of the bedroom vestibule.
A half-level down from the entry atrium are a large office behind pivoting double doors, which adjoins by wide, sliding partition, a daylight-filled guest ensuite bedroom with expansive views to a partially sunken garden. At this level is a double-car garage, equipped with a dumb-waiter for easy transport of heavy shopping to all levels (including kitchen) above. Internal finishes are primarily decape-oak boards with a white wax inlay for both floors and walls, natural stone, white painted plasterboard and exposed concrete. Off-form concrete with horizontal board finish and armite aluminum window frames and panels contrast with planted olive trees for an exterior that is appropriately urban but with a pleasing, “natural” texture.
