Article source: sinato Inc.

An organic restaurant located on Jiyu Street, which is a short walk from Komazawa Park, one of the biggest parks in Tokyo.
-The restaurant is on the ground floor (half-underground) of a three-story apartment building (reinforced concrete).
Since it is located in a residential area, there are not so many people on the street.
But on the weekend, there are many people walking who go to Komazawa Park for a picnic, especially in good seasons.
– It has three functions such as a takeout, an organic food shop and a restaurant.
– The most distinctive feature of the premises lies in its floor level, which is 1.61m below the ground level of entrance. And the height of the premises is 4.39m.

House on the Bluffs in Scarborough, Ontario by Taylor Smyth Architects Designed using AutoCAD and SketchUp

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Article source: Taylor Smyth Architects

Perched on the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs, the dramatic views afforded by this site encompass lake and sky through the tall trunks of mature trees. The foundations of the owner’s childhood home have been reused to create a new residence that celebrates this spectacular location. This allowed us to leave the trees, some of which are growing very close to the house, untouched.

RoomRoom  (House for hearing Handicapped persons)

This is a house where deaf parents and two children are living.

The two sides of the premises are facing narrow roads in an overcrowded residential area in Itabashi ward, Tokyo. The small main building built five years ago became so narrow for dwellers for three generations that they bought a piece of land neighber to their house to build an annex.

Science Tower for the Panum Complex, PArt of the university of Copenhagen

Science tower and urban park in the heart of Copenhagen – the winning proposal for the extension of the Panum complex

C. F. Møller Architects, together with SLA and Rambøll, have been selected by a unanimous jury as the winners of a large and prestigious competition to design an extension to the University of Copenhagen’s Panum complex on Blegdamsvej in the heart of Copenhagen.

The extension of the Panum complex has been designed with the aim of creating the best possible environment for modern research and teaching. A parallel objective has been to create a building which will stand out as an identity-creating, sculptural linchpin for the entire Panum complex and the university’s Nørre Campus (i.e. the North Campus) as a whole. The new complex is also intended to act as the generator of a positive urban development in its immediate neighbourhood and in relation to the entire city.

1100 First Street in Washington, D.C. by Krueck & Sexton Architects

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Article source: Krueck & Sexton Architects

Krueck + Sexton’s architectural design vision for 1100 First Street re-defines the expectations of the speculative office building in Washington, D.C. Organized as two distinct 350,000 square foot blocks on a 1.7 acre site, the forms of this glass-clad building pair are subtly manipulated to emphasize verticality and activate a dynamic courtyard at the center of the complex. This space brings natural light deep into the site and identifies the building’s main entry.

Article source: Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

The home in his native country of a Luxembourg diplomat who is a great lover of painting. The house lies directly on the left bank of the Moselle, at the entrance to a wine-growing town, and is built directly into the vineyards. It consists of three levels and a converted attic. But one recognises this fact only from the Moselle as, due to the slope, part of the building is embedded in the earth.
