A few people asked us about the rents of these “Bikers’ Apartments” in Tokyo.
The rent of an apartment unit where you can keep a motorcycle inside ranges from $800 to $1700 a month. The more you pay the fancier and more convenient it gets.
Currently these units are available:
One apartment (448 SF) is available at NE Apartment for about $1,660 a month.
Another one (349 SF) is available at Apartment in Shimokitazawa for about $1,375 a month.
And a few units are still available at Creer Ukimafunado for about $1,300 a month and up.
Niko is a Tokyo based architecture firm founded by Taketo Nishikubo (b. 1973) in December 2001. Prior to establishing Niko, Nishikubo worked for Atelier Zo, a renowned firm since the early ’70s. In 2004 Nishikubo’s firm was joined by Yumiko Hara, a former colleague at Atelier Zo and now his partner in life.
Niko’s forte is designing a ‘micro’ house on a small irregular-shaped lot for a client with unique taste and needs.
