The site is situated on a small hill in Yokohama. A new program, composed of two-family residence and office, is applied to the building, while paying attention to preserve the family’s history and memories attached to the land. The building is divided in different volumes according to the scale of the surrounding residences. The podium is constructed of concrete retaining walls, the main volume, which is regarded as piano nobile, is made of concrete using wood panel formwork with tongue-and-groove joints, and the white volume contains office. The form of each volume expresses a different function inside.

When we called for this project we met a local who had previously been a seafood restaurant which had nothing to rescue, so we decided to demolish all that was on it to clean completely and leave a completely clean box and based to that from scratch and begin to identify the problems and provide solutions.

M-B.L.D in Fukuoka, Japan by Architect Show Co.,Ltd

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Article source: Architect Show Co., Ltd

Located in Fukuoka City Vice city center, this Building is apartments for rent for single people.

Currently, there is no personality in architecture itself rental apartments, it is often thought to be a uniform design.

As opposed to design the architecture design uniform so far, I have the concept that you plan to have a personality in architecture itself, combines livability and design, the “architecture the sole.
