In the West, the light was always the most powerful ally of beauty, while in traditional Japanese aesthetics, the essential is to grasp the enigma of the shadow. Tanizaki, author of the famous essay In Praise of Shadows (1933) develops this core idea of Eastern thought to warn us against the horrendous bling bling and allows us to capture the beauty in the flickering flame of a lamp or to discover the soul of Architecture through the degrees of opacity of the materials and the silence and darkness of an empty space.
Look closely at the spaces of this great apartment for rent, completely empty, pure architectural bone. Wander your eyes through the various rooms, notice how each one relates to the other, until you get to the bathrooms and the kitchen, authentic resting areas. And the little details timidly asking for some attention .... And everything, every corner, watered by light, light, and more light.
