Apollo Architects & Associates present their 2013 Tokyo, Japan residential build.
The facade of the house for single residents is entirely covered with wooden louvers. Due to the lots narrow size, an RC thin rigid frame was a necessary installment. *click on image for more views
From the architects:
“The front and back spaces are loosely connected by the see-through stairs that are located at the center. The upper floor has a stereoscopic composition via a split level with an open ceiling. Sunlight showers down from the penthouse and fills the enclosed small area, and casts deep shadows in the brutal space”
