Apollo Architects & Associates delivered a brand new project in Tokyo, a two-family home. The house is called Rhythm and it’s a beautifully minimal sanctuary.

The house is entirely conceived around a game of glass, steel and wood, as it lets light in and softens is when it comes into touch with the smooth, linear surfaces.

Rhythm is divided into two areas: it is currently inhabited by two parents and their daughter, and it features a special dining room with intriguing bare walls.

The house presents bedrooms on the second and third floors, as they are more secluded from the street. The second area of the house is divided by an inner courtyard, bridged above by a hallway that connects the two parts. This area is a more intimate residence that sees a bedroom and a bathroom facing one another, on the opposite sides of the courtyard, giving a separation of the spaces.

The house features skylights letting daylight in from above, making sure that none of the spaces remain exposed to the outside, granting maximum privacy to the family.
