SLASH in Chiba, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

This house stands in a nature park with an ocean view, and a mountain behind it. It was designed as a weekend house for the owner to relax while enjoying sunset views. The site is along a busy road. Therefore, the problems of noise and privacy were solved by making enough distance between the road and the building, and by using a reinforced concrete structure facade with minimal openings.
