Tadao Ando-designed house in Shibuya

SOLD 3 Bedrooms + 1 Bathroom + Garage
Shoto, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

*This house sold in November 2018 and is no longer available*

This is a three bedroom contemporary home designed by famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando and located in Shibuya’s exclusive residential neighborhood of Shoto.

The split-level home includes a garage parking space, separate living and dining rooms on the top floor, and three bedrooms and bathroom on the lower floor. The interior was updated in October 2018 with new wall re-sealing, partial balcony re-waterproofing, air-conditioner replacements, new garage shutter door, new kitchen, new hot water system and new intercom.

Floor sizes:

  • 1F: 82.10 sqm
  • 2F: 81.30 sqm

The land fronts onto a 4.7 meter wide public road on the south-west side. This is a reasonably good width for a road in a residential neighborhood.

About the architect

Works by Pritzker Price-winning architect Tadao Ando are highly regarded both in Japan and overseas. Although he has designed a number of homes in the Osaka / Kansai region, there are only a handful of his residences in the Tokyo area, making this an unusual find. When we say his homes are rare, it is not an exaggeration. Ando has only designed six detached homes and one condo building in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Several years ago a house by Ando in the Meguro area was offered for sale and sold to a lucky buyer.
