CAVE in Kagurazaka, Tokyo by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: Apollo architects & associates

This is a house for a single person, built in a quiet residential area in Kagurazaka, Tokyo. The exterior walls use dark brown Galvalume steel in a length-wise, lateral direction, in order to blend into the atmosphere of fleshpots surrounded with black board fences. Galvanized steel sheets are used for exterior walls next to the entrance and around the garage. By using a combination of different steel sheets, a playful contrast is created.
