Ron Arad and Issho. The D House project

The impressive designed dwelling that emerged this year in the hip neighborhood of Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, is one of the most celebrated architectural projects of 2016, a joint-venture between the well-known London based architect Ron Arad and the Japanese design studio Issho.

The D House has 180 sq m divided on three stories: the first one hosts the garage and storage spaces, the ground floor has the kitchen, dining area and open living room and the third one is divided between two bedrooms and a bathroom that communicate through a staircase to the roof terrace.

But the most striking element in the design of Ron Arad and Issho is the façade made of curved steel ribbons that compensate for the narrow structure of the house located in a crowded neighborhood and create a highly aesthetic and dynamic visual effect.
