A Box-Shaped House In Tokyo By Apollo Architects

Words

Japanese studio Apollo Architects & Associates designed a box-shaped house located in a residential area in Tokyo. Titled ‘ARK‘, the building’s structure features a timber surface as well as an oak wooden interior. Speaking of the inspiration behind the name for the project, the architects say that they were inspired by Noah’s ark. In a statement about the concept, the studio says: “Our intention is to provide a living environment where one can feel the air outside from everywhere in the house such as private room or living and dining room.”
