Archdaily ran a great story on a nine unit Manhattan Condominium Project designed by Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban. I have to say that these pictures are fabulous. A neat feature is that these units use retractable shutters. Where some people may argue that a closed up unit may not be that attractive, it is hard to refute its energy savings. Having lived in Florida for a few years with the eminent storms there, shuttered up units do not take that much away from the landscape from my perspective. The inner room pictures feature great home decor and the penthouse terrace is tough to beat in this house design.
