HOUSE OF CONTRAST in Tokyo, Japan by KEY OPERATION INC./ ARCHITECTS

 
October 16th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KEY OPERATION INC./ ARCHITECTS

A home for a couple and child stands on a lot 3.7 meters wide and 17 meters deep. Planning of the home focused on how to develop a pleasant layout with sufficient perspective for this slim lot. The lots to the left and right were also for sale and of similar breadth and depth. The plan assumed that spacing between the houses would be tight. Morover, the site is on a grade that rises by over 2 meters from the street facing. The ground floor where the entrance is located gradually submerges underground toward the back, where no inlets are possible.

25 APARTMENTS in Paris, France by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

 
October 16th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

The project falls within the general framework of restructuring Porte Pouchet (Paris, 17th arrondissement) and, more particularly, the site represented by Rue Rebière which, until now, had been largely ignored. The 25 housing units are distributed over two buildings, each making reference to its specific context: a small tower develops the form generated by a small square on the west side. It is linked by walkways to a more compact building positioned on the street’s alignment and provides continuity with adjacent projects. These two systems generate diversified housing units (17 different types out of a total of 25) with views over the city and considerable thought given to positioning with regards neighbours. The result is an architecture that takes full advantage of this limited site (18 x 50 m).
