House for green, breeze and light in Ota city, Tokyo by Yaita and Associates

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Yaita and Associates

This residence is in the residential area called Denenchofu which is located about 20 km to the west of the center of Tokyo. This area was developed about 90 years ago, based on the ideas of Eiichi Shibuzawa–to build a garden city on the hill ever blessed with gentle breezes and abundant vegetation.  To maintain the philosophy of this environmental formation, rules for the conservation of green, stricter than those of the other residential areas of Tokyo, were stipulated, such as requiring houses to be set back 2m from the roads. These rules have continued to be observed to this day.

The wish to set up, the search for living in harmony with nature, the need of autonomy for each one of the three members of the family, the low budget (understood as the optimization of resources and spaces) and the phrase: “There is always another way of doing things and another way for living”, settled by her, were the starting point for the design.

Residential building KUK in Hainfeld, Lower Austria by [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Article source: [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH

Starting point for this project was the desire for a closed and introverted building structure that provides protection and security. The requirement to design a one-story building and the high demand of rooms made it possible to realize a u-shaped atrium around the existing summer house. The guest unit, the indoor pool as well as the residential area were aligned one after another along the property line. Therefore the building functions like a huge wall that creates an intimate courtyard granting protection and security.
