This project from Apollo Architects was designed for a high school teacher and his wife and is located at a tranquil residential area in west Tokyo.
The first floor of the house has the kids room, a main bedroom and a water area while on the second one, there is big family room with a large opening. Apollo Architects took into consideration the privacy element in the whole design of the house.
To answer to the coverage ratio, Apollo Architects set a grating balcony which functions as a gentle connection of the first and second floor and as a stand to appreciate the view of the symbolized tree.
As it is pretty evident the architectural firm has used effectively the whole space of the plot and has paid the same great attention in both the exterior and interior architecture of the building
