House in Toyonaka, Japan by Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Dynamic Abstractness

It is difficult to deal with architectural elements such as stairs and handrails that don’t have direct relation to the main architectural composition.

It might be my prejudice, but architectural space gradually becomes static, when additive elements are reduced to be abstract. It also has an effect on various human activities and furniture to vividly come to front, but sometimes it appears as if they are being denied.

Roomers hotel in Munich, Germany by concrete

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Article source: concrete

ROOMERS – DESIGNSTORY

Concrete is proud to open Hotel Roomers in Munich; a hotel designed to cater to curious travellers who enjoy the flair and lightness of contemporary design in a classic setting.

‘Seduction’, ‘surprise’, and ‘the unknown’ are the key words behind the design of the hotel. The warm golden glow of the vast Vegas-like light canopy outside and the neon logo attract attention and make them curious about the life that hides behind the diffuse sheer curtains along the facade.

Izakaya restaurant in Munich, Germany by concrete

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Article source: concrete 

Restaurant IZAKAYA Munich is a unique mix of the ethnic feel of a Japanese inspired restaurant and the modern, sleekly but elegant Hotel Roomers.

The Japanese stand-alone restaurant IZAKAYA, located in the building of Hotel Roomers, announces its presence to the guests at the moment of arrival, with the show kitchen visible through the glass facade of the porte-cochere. A translucent gradient in the glass directs the attention on the chefs working at the countertops and cooking pits while all other elements are blurred out.

Pollença is a northern town of Mallorca that is well known for its lively Sunday market. Other wellknown attractions include the Calvary Steps, an ancient stairway that leads to the top of Mount Calvary; and the Roman Bridge, also known as the Pont Romà.

A short distance and parallel to Pollença’s Main Square, one finds the small street Carrer del Sol. This Medieval street is representative of Pollença’s cultivated approach to architecture and craftsmanship. This is also where House N° 3 is located.

Ichijoji House in Kyoto, Japan by atelier Luke

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Article source: atelier Luke 

A deliberate balance between modernity and tradition creates this unique and textured retreat in the suburbs of Kyoto.

Osaka based design studio, atelier Luke, collaborated closely with craftspeople in Kyoto, Osaka and Nagano to apply traditional finishes and techniques to the design and renovation of this postwar terraced house. The client, a Danish-Australian furniture maker, wished to modernise the home without abandoning the character that makes traditional Japanese houses unique. From this position of respect, a design approach was adopted whereby modern attitudes to living would be balanced and contrasted with tradition.

Hut in Tsujido, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Article source: Naoi Architecture & Design Office 

The site of this project was a vacant, untouched plot of land next to the existing suburban residence. Fortunately, the surrounding of the site is under the management of the city authority as a green space, and it will be kept as it is in the future–therefore the client hoped to maintain the feel of nature in their daily lives, while enjoying the time spending on gardening or having meals outside of the house. Then, we proposed a simple, hut-like residence corresponding to the scenery; from inside, the surrounding nature is to be enjoyed as a view; when staying outside, being the integral part of the nature is to be appreciated.
