Shift House by Apollo Architects & Associates
Called Shift, the house in Tokyo was designed by Japanese studio Apollo Architects & Associates. The unusual house's exterior looks cold and unwelcoming, because there are no windows outside. But it’s only an appearance, as passers-by are unaware about original design idea. It turns out that inside the space of the house is situated a small internal courtyard. And inner walls are totally made of glass that provides views into all of the interior spaces on both floors. Everything in the house aimed at supporting balance and harmony. You can see the plan of the rooms on the picture below. There is even a yoga room on the first floor. The symbolic tree in the courtyard plays a central role in sustaining the equilibrium of the architecture and allows to take pleasure the Japanese four seasons.
