japanese apollo architects & associates recently completed 'edge' house for
a middle aged couple and their son, located in sendai, japan.

the site is situated on a corner lot, with high levels of traffic. to resolve this
issue the architects created a surrounding perimeter fence, which is part
of the building itself. the reinforced concrete white outer wall of the facade
has been covered in photocatalytic paint, keeping in mind aesthetics

the ground floor consists of the dining space which faces the front yard
and the living room, which leads to the outside deck space.

the small courtyard leads to the upper section of the house which then
becomes the entrance hall and functions as a center of the house. it also
consists of balconies and a rooftop garden.
