Palazzo Orlandi in Tuscany, Italy by b-arch architecture

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: b-arch

When we think of Italy many images are called back to our minds; generally speaking it’s about idyllic places, deeply viewed in a historical perspective, city palaces or country farmsteads that are vanishing under the spreading standardization of the “pre-packaged” house imposed by the building market.

Tamaranzaka House in Kokubunji, Tokyo by Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

Due to Tokyo’s high land prices, plot sizes become reduced as a matter of necessity. What’s more, buildings often become even smaller in order to satisfy strict building regulations. As a result, architects working on residential projects in the Japanese capital are universally concerned with how to maximize the physical area of these buildings within a limited space, as well as how to produce a feeling of openness and breadth. Many clients are also concerned with how to provide adequate storage within a small space, and how to create a comfortable environment.

House in Kitaoji, Japan by Torafu Architects

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Article source: Torafu Architects

Located in a quiet housing estate in Kyoto, this house was designed with a hard concrete outer shell in order to protect the client need for privacy from the outside, as well as for accessibility in a wheelchair- bound lifestyle. Firstly, to protect the privacy of the family, we built walls along the site boundary to elevate the main living space, which is maximised on the 2nd floor. We designed a large central space with individual rooms, wet areas and circulation and other utility spaces surrounding it, to ensure a distance is kept well from the outside.

The architectonic concept for this residential project is to propose a composition that is achieved by the proper manipulation of “contrasts in balance”; an architecture that is generated as a response to the particularities of the site, the adequate solution for the programmatic family needs, but most important, inspired by the deep motivation for the search of the supreme well being of its inhabitants.

We used one of the primordial volumes to spur the feeling of familiarity, the cube.
