Alley House by japanese studio Apollo Architects and Associates planned the residence for a family of four. The dwelling is located at the end of an ‘alley’ in a busy neighborhood of Tokyo. Due to difficulty of construction within the small narrow site at the end of a narrow path, a wooden construction was chosen. Soft, dark brown galvanised steel exterior walls create a Japanese impression, and the house naturally blends into the old neighbourhood. At night the house glows like a lighthouse.
