Towada Community Plaza in Japan by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source:  Kengo Kuma & Associates

This wooden building was constructed as the city’s community center for people to gather. We repeated the roofs for the façade so that it could merge into the neighboring townscape of small houses. On the exterior wall, wainscot panels are applied with spaces in between, and it expresses a warm and friendly face to the street of the land to the north. The street in front of the building actually extends into the interior, and is given the name “Michi-no-Hiroba (plaza for the street),” around which a children’s playroom, cooking studio and tatami room are arranged.

GSX HOUSE by Agustí Costa Estudi de Disseny

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: Agustí Costa Estudi de Disseny

I’m used to project housing new plant in parallel to the execution of the structure and the walls of the house. This is one of these houses and, like others, has preserved the exterior architecture. Inside, it has a very special characteristic derived from a very slow development, of the project, and then their execution on site. The result, a project completely tailored to the aspirations of customers, materials, colours and textures but, above all, a proposal that has opened a new experiences of living and forged a sincere friendship between clients and designers. The interconnected open spaces, the rigorous forms and light, are characteristic features of this house, which we also designed the garden.

Tiny shanghai shop into little catch fishmonger in China by LINEHOUSE

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: LINEHOUSE

Located on one of Shanghai’s busiest streets alive with local food stalls, small restaurants, shops and sidewalk activity, Little Catch is a fishmonger specialising in fresh and cooked seafood. LINEHOUSE created a three dimensional net that externally reaches into the street as a canopy and envelops the customers as they enter into the shop. On the ceiling the net, constructed out of a white powder coated metal structure infilled with white mesh of varying densities and transparencies, opens up in areas to create additional shelving for products. On the walls the metal structure folds and bends to hold the fresh seafood display, the cashier, product shelving and a table seating two.

REVELEY CLASSROOM BUILDING in Moscow, Idaho by Patano Studio Architecture

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: Patano Studio Architecture

Initial site visits at the University of Idaho Pitkin Nursery revealed hoop houses, metal sheds and stacks of planter boxes. Beginning with the idea of a wood box floating on the undulating sea of the Palouse, the design team set out to stitch together the program, landscape and the materiality of Idaho forest products. The college wanted to extend their public outreach in addition to nursery research functions. The outstretched ramps and decks reach out to the landscape and invite the public and students to the building. The Sales Office was pulled through the wood screen as a way to express itself beyond the functions of classroom, offices, and social gathering. The weathering cedar wood screen that stands off the building was imagined as a modern western storefront. The repetition of stacked boxes was intriguing; we saw that as the piece that expressed the transition from working nursery to classroom. The cedar wood screen is the threshold element for faculty and students to step through the gap between the two elements; wood screen and black box.

G House by NUCA Studio

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: NUCA Studio

It was the owners’ lifestyle that provided the starting point in the design of this house: the family is always surrounded by relatives and friends, which implies a high degree of house occupancy every weekend, as well as many ongoing activities. The building was thus designed as a shifted, irregular volume, ensuring the existence of several “centres of interest” on each of the two levels, and, at the same time, the opening of several areas towards the outside.
