Wrap House by APOLLO Architects & Associates


‘The Wrap’ is a house situated in Matsuyama, Japan. The minimalist home was designed by APOLLO Architects & Associates for creative clients who work in advertising and graphic design. The architects maximized the indoor lighting and view from the hilltop structure with wide windows showcasing the panoramic views. The building is comprised of an exposed concrete with cedar wooden paneling, and galvanized steel. This creates an ultra-modern look both inside and outside. The inside features a floating staircase and is mostly hidden, with the exception of a large opening that reveals the interior wooden structure. This creates increased privacy; a must-have in the retreat. A wooden gate door enclosed by a reinforced concrete wall leads to the entrance courtyard.  The inner courtyard is illuminated by a soft diffused light coming down from the grating, and all the ground floor interior spaces face towards it.
