Residential Architecture: Ridge Residence by SNARK and OUVI: “..Japanese studios SNARK and OUVI have completed two apartment blocks in Takasaki City that look like clusters of two-storey houses..The sixteen apartments have identical layouts in plan, yet every one has a differently shaped elevation that has been designed to create the best lighting and views for each precise location..This means room heights, window positions and roof pitches vary for both blocks, while some of the top floor residences feature suspended ceilings that zigzag up and down..Both buildings are entirely clad in light blue coated steel and all sixteen apartments have minimal white interiors..” Traditional scale for this multi-resident apartment building; adequate glazing, interesting interior volumes and light-blue metal cladding..
