Apartments Designed for Scooterists/Motorcyclists

Dezeen » Blog Archive » NE apartment by Yuji Nakae, Akiyoshi Takagi and Hirofumi Ohno

This is one of the cooler things I've seen lately. Three Japanese architects have designed a unit of eight apartments specifically for two-wheeling residents.
The C-shaped unit has an open, central common area which connects to the street, a kind of shared driveway. Each apartment has a small garage off of this central hub.
I can just imagine that weekends at this unit would entail a lot of wrenching and BSing about modifications and bike performance...
So awesome.
