The final award winner that I’d like to mention from the 2008 Good Design Awards is “Dancing Trees, Singing Birds,” the 6-unit  townhouse rentals designed by Hiroshi Nakamura. I first saw these a couple weeks ago over on whatwedoissecret, and was blown away to find out that this tree house-looking structure is located in the heart of Tokyo.

The units went on the market earlier this year. I don’t know about availability but according to the website the Library House, on the low end of the scale, is going for 600,000 yen (about 6K usd) per month while the Tea House, on the upper end, is going for 2.7 million yen (about 27k usd) per month.
