Tetote Note in Aichi Prefecture, Japan by Yoshihiro Kato Atelier Co., Ltd.

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: Yoshihiro Kato Atelier Co., Ltd. 

The square and pure white building located on a 100 square meter site is called TETOTE NOTE. TETOTE means handshake in Japanese, and it signifies the collaboration among the designers, the clients, and those involved in creating. The first to fifth floors are used as an in-house studio, and the simple arrangement of oblong circular windows in the flat outer surface is impressive. These windows have two ways of opening—vertically and horizontally. Attached just at the surface of the outer wall, these windows give the impression of flatness viewed from the outside, while the thickness of the walls further emphasizes the oblong shape, capturing more random and active shadow and light. In this way the structure has the impression of duality, with a rougher interior, and it represents a stronger relationship through space and minimal detail, without incorporating a great deal of design information. Glass is used for the roofs of the stairway shafts connecting the floors, shedding light on the walls of each floor, and this light changes over time. The steps of the steel staircases are punched through with oblong holes to allow more light to reach all the way to the bottom floor.

Eva’s Phoenix in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners 

LGA Architectural Partners (LGA) has created Eva’s Phoenix, a neighbourhood within a building. Eva’s offers safe and inclusive long-term shelter, education and skills training to marginalized youth aged 16-24 in transition from homelessness to independent living. Within two, heritage-designated warehouses leased from the City of Toronto, the architectural team created a central, interior community faced by ten clean-lined and contemporary townhouses that are awash in natural light from a ceiling of new skylights, whilst securely enclosed by the original brick walls. For up to one year, each of the 50 residents enjoys his or her own bedroom, within a “house” comprised of a communal living and kitchen space and two bathrooms with up to four others. These houses face onto an internal street – which serves as a gathering place for the Eva’s community. The layering of spaces builds comfort by giving the youth the choice to decide their own level of integration.

Inhabiting 6 converted shophouse units at the confluence of Singapore’s historic Chinatown area and the CBD, MOD’s own design studio employs the same key principles which govern its approach to design—typological relevance, a disciplined material and tonal palette and an ‘essentialised” concept.

HDI Tokyo Office in Japan by van der Architects

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: van der Architects 

What does an authentic workplace look like? Designing an authentic office is not an easy task. Just like the terms “artist”, “poet” or “great lover”, these are titles that are given or need to be earned rather than being self-assigned.

Our attempt in creating an authentic workplace started off with our WorkVitamins methodology. This methodology was created by me, Martin van der Linden, principal of van der Architects, when I was an assistant researcher at Waseda Univeristy in 2001 here in Tokyo. I believes that architecture can be a catalyst for change in innovative environments, and this methodology – called “WorkVitamins” – is based on this idea.

2073 Offices Building in Maracaibo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

The existing building branches two very important and modern avenues of Maracaibo. The building cannot refrain from this responsibility; the current building is silent and unnoticed. That is why the renewal must make it the centerpiece of the whole urban piece that is not muted but clear; intervention strategies are directed precisely to recognize the building in the urban role and strengthen its relationship with the city.
