Full Description

Featuring central inner gardens and an emphasis on natural elements, Japanese studio Apollo crafts warm and inviting homes through their dedication to design, security, and function. These houses are understated yet monumental in their confident form. With a firm rejection of frivolity, their functionality is achieved with the restraint and thoughtfulness of a practiced hand. Led by renowned architect Satoshi Kurosaki, the team skillfully orchestrates individual design elements to achieve a harmonious and peaceful space.

Tracing the studio’s decades-long practice, this book showcases a carefully selected collection of Apollo’s projects with striking photography accompanied by thoughtful commentary and insights into the design process. Apollo pulls back the curtain, revealing the art of creating spaces that embody balance and harmony, permeating every aspect of one’s life.
