Sick of the plain brick apartment block you’re living in? Move to Japan! Located in Nagoya, the Okazaki Building, as it’s called stands as a ‘bold, beacon of colour,’ bringing vibrancy to a neighborhood trapped in dreary greys. This building was designed by Ciel Rouge Creation, an architectural firm based in Tokyo, Paris and Marseille.

But don’t just think a coat of paint makes this building special. The entire infrastructure has been carefully planned, with the exterior boasting an individual colour that’s reflected outside. Whoever’s lucky enough to call this building home, they’ll be treated to large grassy outdoor balconies overlooking the city, and roomy floor plans inside.
