House in Nichinan, Japan by TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

A wooden house of the box type built in Nichinan-shi, Miyazaki.
Control of its eyes was a problem because there was an unmanned railroad station on the south side.
A living room was established in the 2nd floor and the eyes from a home in the station were exchanged.
Though the exterior material was simple as urethane painting finishing in the material as \”wrap siding\” which came into fashion before, I aimed at the symbolic outward appearance from location as the house built in front of the station.

CALDO in Mizonokuchi, Japan by Doyle Collection co.ltd., Aiji Inoue

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Doyle Collection co.ltd., Aiji Inoue

CALDO is a national chain fitness facility where customers casually enjoy Hot Yoga, Fitness, Pilates and Pressurizing Training. There are mixtures of “stillness” and “motion” in the programs. One of our challenges was how to design the individual space with the surrounding relations. As principle axis, we decided to use “COLORS” that will associate psychologically when customers enter the facility.

Grotto in Georgian Bay, Canada by PARTISANS

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: PARTISANS

The blue waters of Lake Huron—located north of Toronto—complement its majestic surroundings and offer a dream-like location for a retreat. A sensual environment, its serene landscape reminds the temporary dwellers of the harmony that exist beyond human possibilities. When PARTISANS team met on site, with a new client for designing and constructing a potential Sauna, they knew that their most prominent challenge was to make a free-standing structure that not only respected, but also matured from the context. Located within the Georgian Bay, the site is a prehistoric large-scale rock formation. Contemplated research was conducted, and through the process a Grotto was set as an inspiration that would inform the design. Grottos, historically, have been known as natural or artificial caves that are embedded deep behind the curvature of streams, and thus discovered by those who would take the time to explore.

BeanBar Café in Qingdao, China by Latitude Studio

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Latitude Studio

Cafés, tearooms, dry cleaners, fast food restaurants and other urban spaces are taking on roles that historically belonged to our homes, from our living and dining rooms to our kitchens, bathrooms, and storage spaces. Nowadays, a café is a cozy place for friendship in the big city. It provides a space to share, and sell, a moment to complete our day. In this way, cafés are part of the modern city but also represent what they are replacing: our own home.

Mirrors in Gifu, Japan by Hisanori Ban Kazumoto Terashima / bandesign

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Hisanori Ban Kazumoto Terashima / bandesign

A row of cherry trees is planted at an embankment at its basin, and many people visit this location during the cherry-blossom viewing season. There is Mirrors along the avenue.

Taking advantage of this location, we intentionally made repeated refractions of the tree. In order to amplify the cherry two mirror walls set up angle position and making a cherry forest on a corner of the town. Overlapping the cherries and reflecting with a warp, the people are invited by it to the forest. In addition, in the café the people could see the cherries and the reflecting cherries at the same time and feel season changing closely.
