sia aoyama building

the sia aoyama building is a high-rise rental office building that stands right in the middle of the omotesando district. the sia building both houses apartments as well as offices. thus, the design of the tower does neither show the appearance of an apartment tower nor of an office building. in consequence, the tower has a  monolith-like surface.

the building itself is 64m high with 9 stories from the ground floor, with a relatively high ceiling reaching to 4.9m. As a result, even with a minimized window area, sufficient natural light flows consistently to the full depth into the building.
