The site is situated at the back of a parking lot rented out on a monthly basis, and we decided to provide no openings on the exterior façades to protect privacy. The house has a simple L-shaped plan, built around a covered entrance courtyard in the center, to decrease the construction cost. The covered courtyard, also used as an entrance approach, serves as an intermediate space between inside and outside.Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa The main bedroom, located next to the entrance on the first floor, is a small private room with a sense of calmness. On the contrary, the children’s room is an open space located next to the courtyard, which can be appropriately adjusted and subdivided according to their growth. Skeleton stairs, which can also be appreciated as an art piece, are located in front of the main entrance, leading to the second floor. The second floor is comprised of an open space without partitions. The space is defined by the sequence of beautiful exposed wood ceiling rafters constituting the horizontal ceiling. The wood rafters extend to outside and constitute a pergola above the entrance courtyard, integrating the interior and exterior spaces.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!First Floor Plan The strip skylight window is located on the second floor ceiling and one can enjoy the magnificent effect of natural light and shadow on the wall. LED lamps are embedded between the rafters, illuminating SPF structural members and ceiling panels and creating dramatic gradation of light. The exterior pergola is lit up from below, creating a floating feeling at night.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!Second Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessV-Lodge / Reiulf Ramstad ArkitekterSelected Projects”Classic Japan” Episode 2: Sachio Otani’s Kyoto International Conference CenterVideos Share Pergola / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this projectSavePergola / APOLLO Architects & Associates Year: “COPY” ArchDaily “COPY” Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeAPOLLO Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSakura-kuHousesJapanPublished on February 10, 2015Cite: “Pergola / APOLLO Architects & Associates” 10 Feb 2015.
