Designer: Apollo Architects and Associates
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Brun is a minimal home located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Apollo Architects and Associates. The home is partially lifted by a stilt in order to reveal parking space underneath. The architectural strips that section off the front façade provides just enough privacy while still being able to enjoy the view.
Apollo Architects and Associates just so happens to be one of my favorite architecture firms ever. Ever. I have written about them too many times to count, and their new works consistently improve from the last. Brun is just another example of why they are my favorite. The details of the lighting, the bands that cover the front window, the subtle slants in the roof – everything about this home makes me want to live there. What do you guys think?
