We designed a new guesthouse for young people from all over the world at Koya-san, the head temple of the Shingon sect founded 1200 years ago, the UNESCO world heritage. It is a mixture of Japanese capsule type hotel in which the privacy is well protected, and dormitory in which the communication among the guests is active. Each single room directly faces a hall so that you can chose proper distance with other guests ensuring the privacy. Selecting of thin wooden structure, resulting that the burden load per one pillar is relatively light, visibility of environmental facilities for easier maintenance and the simple composition of the space allow not only owner of this guest house but also guests to maintain, modify and keep on using this architecture for the long time.

This house is situated in a town surrounded by mountains. We designed a white box where light and wind go through. The image was shining white box where residents would live feeling the transition of light and shadow with letting go of their mind.

We reconstructed an old Japanese-style hotel as event space.
We made the small 3 banquet office which can hold a meeting.
We made wide multi-purpose space (cafe light meal and restaurant, etc.).
It’s possible to make these 3 rooms united space by a movement partition.

Located on the shore of the Gate Lake, on a slightly sloping land of almost 80 000 pi2, the chalet takes place on the edge of a cedar wood with majestic mature incline trunk trees. Although the footprint of this two-storey building is substantial, because the roof slope follows the landscape the impact of it site integration is minimal.

The Centrexpo Drummondville is the most up-to-date exhibition center in the province of Quebec. The building shows the avant gardist side of Drummondville by showing an actual and contemporary image. The designers intend to show a progressive architecture according to the time of the day, a fully glazed building which reveals the activities and dynamism of the location. Different opacity in the fenestration allows to filter natural light at daytime and makes it look like a glowing lantern at night.

Located in the center of the town Stoneham, surrounded by a mountainous and wooden environment, the new pavilion of the elementary school of Stoneham-Tewkesbury is built near the existing one. The new school can accommodate an extra of 240 students in order to fill the growing needs of the municipality.

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.
