Dear Ginza bldg in Tokyo, Japan by amano design office

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: amano design office

The client is a developer company. It purchased a long-sought after lot in Ginza, and planned to build a commercial  office building.

The building site is on the Ginza 1-chome Gaslight Street, which is one street behind the Ginza Central Street.

It is on the back side of the Mizuho Bank and Pola Ginza buildings on the Central Street. The atmosphere is quite different from the gorgeous Central Street, and the site is on an empty street which is often seen behind the street with large-sized buildings.
Attracting as many people as possible into such a street is our task. The client desired the building to be a gorgeous existence.

CASA PETRINI VILLANI IN Polignano a Mare, Bari, Italy BY arch. Antonella MARI

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: arch. Antonella MARI

The house for a psychologist, a nurse and their young daughter is designed as the extension of an existing one-floor building in the historic center of Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy. While the old tufo facade remains almost unmodified, the new volume above is clearly defined through the use of lighter materials: a double skin system – made of  glass/aluminum large windows screened by steel and wood retractable panels – allows natural light in, while preventing heating.

Farmers Fishers Bakers in Washington, DC by GrizForm Design Architects

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Article source: GrizForm Design Architects

Farmers Fishers Bakers, a 9,700­ square­-foot restaurant in Washington, DC, is an original and creative restaurant venue that seamlessly combines form, function, and creativity. The space formerly housed Farmers & Fishers, a restaurant ruined after the Potomac River in Washington, DC flooded the space. The owners called on a local DC­based architecture and interior design firm to re-imagine the restaurant as one with a farm theme full of folk­like touches and unusual materials with an emphasis on custom design.

Periscope House in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan by Kuno + Aida

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Kuno + Aida

A single-family residence located in a typical residential area, where two-story wooden houses are densely built. In order to obtain fine living environment while giving a minimum impact on the surroundings, we proposed a plan in which three volumes of the bedroom with the opening turned for the south are pulling out from the roof level as if they were a set of periscopes.

Saijo Clinic in Tokyo, Japan by Aida Atelier, Inc.

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Article source:  Aida Atelier, Inc.

Saijo Clinic is a private mental health clinic with short-care/group-care programs on the 11th floor penthouse of a building facing Shinjuku Gyoen Park, 58ha urban park located in central Tokyo. The penthouse was originally built as a part of a gigantic signboard on rooftop. The sign graphic was later abolished by newly introduced landscape regulations, however, the space inside was left over. In designing the interior of the clinic, we sought to incorporate the extraordinary contrast between different urban scales.

N-House in Tokyo, Japan by Takato Tamagami Architectural Design

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Article source: Takato Tamagami Architectural Design

This is a two-generation family housing situated on high ground in Tokyo metropolitan area. The housing is composed of two interlocked volumes of A-House and B-House.  We intend to provide completely different spatial sequences in both houses.

The site is 15m(width) x 30m(length), long in south-north direction. Church, which is mainly used as facility for wedding parties, is located on the west side. We created a U-shaped volume and a courtyard in the middle, in order to get enough sunlight from all directions. Exterior finish is white cement plaster exposed aggregate finish with coral sand. The white volume sits on the basement, where separate entries to both houses and car parking are located.

Portico in Tokyo, Japan

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Aida Atelier, Inc.

This is a house for a family of three in a residential neighborhood of suburban Tokyo. Surrounded by properties subdivided through generations of time, this site maintains its original state. Albeit having plenty of land relative to others, six different adjacent properties with homes built tightly to the boundary leaves the project site with a condition, which limits the project from fully enjoying the advantage of having a deep street frontage with the river. Such meticulous condition of uneven contextual grain at a time of transition from continuing growth and expansion, it shall undoubtedly be emerged in mass in the residential neighborhood. As such, the theme for this project is the approach to architecture and exterior space that receives undulating peripheral density.

Located in a former industrial building, the loft occupies an entire floor with full window exposure and dynamic urban views on three sides. The design enhances this industrial context by posing new construction as a single sculptural intervention within this existing space.
