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.

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.

ICEBERG is an ideal set for a new and innovative hairdressing shop. The shop is located next to coffee shops and commercial spaces so the external brise-soleil, which create the internal privacy, become the main theme of the project. A white wave that from the facade enters in the shop and becomes a wallpaper and modifies the interior space. The interior design reminds a seascape “post-ice-age”.

- Project: ICEBERG
- Software used: AutoCAD, Rhinoceros, Cinema 4D and Abobe Illustrator for the panels on the walls.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, Beijing has made huge strides to solidify its position as one of the world’s great cities. It is a city that is modernizing rapidly—skyscrapers are rising out of fallow fields, a new transportation system is extending the reach of the city, and environmental initiatives are improving air and water quality. Fresh ideas are also emerging, while still embracing the rich traditions of the past. Near Songzhuang, a quiet village on the outskirts of Beijing, a unique opportunity exists to create a new urban district dedicated entirely to the cultivation of new ideas.
Public plazas and parks are also used for large gathering spaces for product launches, concerts, and other events
