The site is by the Station of the Yokohama suburban area, center of the emerging suburban district where the population of young families keeps growing.
Several large shopping facilities are scattered and form a unique suburban townscape, still it is hard to say that it is attractive enough as a town or an urban space, despite those attractive facilities, active urban planning and many young and energetic people.

The project was conceived as a modernist prototype for Vancouver’s ubiquitous RS-1 zoning district. The project explored the development restrictions of the residential regulations as well as the limitations of building within an urban context. The process was meant to generate a set of guidelines for what we have termed a ‘flexible prototype’ that could address the contextual differences of individual sites in a way that allows for a customized integration of passive environmental strategies, the incorporation of exterior space as part of everyday living, and the provision of an affordable and flexible live work space.

This biodynamic dairy farm, which also has a public and educational function, is located at an extraordinary spot along the IJssel near Diepenveen, where the lower and higher floodplains meet. The design allows the grounds to be flooded. Natuurderij KeizersRande is an extension of the existing KeizersRande estate.

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.

The unusual task and the difficult building site was at one hand a big challenge but on the other a big potential. The owner requested a workshop for his Unimog and a small residential unit. The site is located directly next to a street with heavy traffic and is surrounded by small private houses and farm buildings. A crucial parameter was the very tight cost frame.

In the traditional local house in Ibukijima Island, the toilet is mostly established in a small cottage separated from the main house. In Ibukijima Island, the toilet is a peripheral space that is repelled and excluded from the main house.
The relation between the main house and the separated cottage resembles the relation between the main land and isolated Ibukijima island or between a big city and a remote district somewhere. Now, Ibukijima island is only connected with liner from Kanonji city of the main land, and the small isolated island serves as the periphery of the main land and the country of Japan.
