Wooden Box House in Saitama, Japan by Suzuki architects

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: Suzuki architects

A house-cum-office for the mother who runs a local hair salon, and for the father who works as a writer for 40 years. On the first floor, there is a salon and a dressing/sleeping room in the back for the mother. When windows are open, wind goes through the large space under the eaves facing the town. Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden, and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives. This architecture has a simple plan reflecting the couple’s lifestyles, and wood over time gives the taste and warmth to architecture in various ways.

How do you create a home in 4.5m? It’s tricky, but a lot of fun.

A family of four had lived in this modest, ageing house for almost eight years. As the children neared their teenage years something had to be done. Abandoning their home and moving elsewhere was not an option as the family was an important part of a thriving community.

“House in hieidaira” in Shiga, Japan by Tato architects

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Tato architects

Located in a rural part of Japan on the flank of Mount Hiei north of Kyoto, this house was designed for an artist who required a studio, living space as well as to accommodate his parents. The house has been designed as a collection of three independent but related structures that reference the local vernacular of predominantly small pitched roof cottages. It was thought that to try to accommodate all of the required programmatical functions in one structure would result in a too large building. Also there were concerns from the planning authority that activities in the studio may result in disturbance to neighbouring residents.
