ALLEY house in Sumida ward, Tokyo by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

A client for a house, of which I designed and supervised eight years ago, got married and bought a small lot near Tokyo Skytree, which is located in a place with a downtown atmosphere. Due to difficulty of construction within the small narrow site at the end of a narrow path, a wooden construction was chosen. Soft, dark brown Galvanized steel exterior walls create a Japanese impression, and the house naturally blends into the old neighborhood.

By using glass walls on the street side, indoor views include the surrounding environment.
