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.

The House for Seven People

The original house was built 37 years ago with a mixed structure; steel on the ground floor and timber on the first floor. Since its original construction in 1977, the site around the house has dramatically changed. The two-story house is now surrounded by 7-9 story buildings in an area known as the “Urban Village“, which lies between Yamate-Dori and Megro River – a three minute walk from Fudomae Metro Station in Tokyo.

This house sits at the tiny corner lot, while facing the tree-lined ginkgo.

Around this dwelling area of the small city block and the narrow road, the human scale that offers friendly atmosphere to the pedestrian from the old days is kept, also thanks to the tree-lined ginkgo.

CALM House in Bunkyo ward, Tokyo by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

This three-story residence is designed to function not only as a house but as a guesthouse that occasionally accommodates foreign guests and exchange students. It is made of concrete using wood formworks composed of 40mm-wide cedar. The authentic and solid materiality of concrete is contrasted by sharp stainless steel louvers covering the second floor window, and this facade gives a touch of elegance to the streetscape of the neighborhood. Louvers effectively provide security and privacy at the same time.

Timber structure archery hall and boxing club in Tokyo, Japan by FT Architects

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: FT Architects

The project consists of two buildings, an archery hall and a boxing club, standing a few hundred meters apart on the grounds of Kogakuin University in west Tokyo.

The formal rituals of Kyudo (Japanese archery) and the very physical nature of boxing may appear worlds apart. However, surprisingly, the two built facilities share a number of commonalities.
