japanese office masahiko fujimori architects completes a residential project in the northern part of hiroshima city entitled ‘chronos dwell.’ surrounded by low mountains and with easy access to the city center, the residential district is attracting a growing number of young families resulting in an increasing population. in response to this growth, the firm designed chronos dwell as a clustered series of fifteen family apartments. to avoid introducing another high rise into the neighborhood, the fifteen units are organized as individual volumes.

the organization of the units results in interstitial outdoor courtyards and connective pathways. as masahiko fujimori architects aimed to create micro-communities among the residents of chronos dwell, the fifteen units of the complex are divided into four clusters, each of which surrounds a central courtyard. these pathways serve as transitional thresholds between the courtyard and each unit’s interior. each volume varies in floor height, introducing a sectional richness and unique lofted interior spaces. sectional shifts are clearly expressed from the exterior by private terraces.
