Klein Dytham architecture

Can you believe the details in these buildings? They're by the Tokyo-based Klein Dytham architecture, who create not only incredible-looking structures like these, but who also design interiors, public spaces and installations. If you like what you see below, I would definitely recommend checking out their website, where you can see more images of the wide range of work that they create.

R3 Ukishima, a commercial building in Naha, Okinawa.

Sin Den, designed as a home and business (hair salon) for a young couple, in Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo.

Leaf Chapel, Kobuchizawa, Yamanashi. "The chapel is formed by 2 leaves - one glass, one steel - which have seemingly fluttered to the ground. The glass leaf with its delicate lace pattern motif emulates a pergola and the structure holding it up reminds one of the veins of a leaf which slowly become thinner the further they get from the central stem."
