House H in Chiba, Japan by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

 
June 15th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

This is a house for young couple and their child, located in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture. Matsudo City has a background that has developed as a residential area on the outskirts of Tokyo from the 1960s. This new house was planned rebuilding of the house which was built at that time. We seemed to have been asked to build a house as a new symbol in this place by a young family with the hope of the future. So we proposed the house as living symbol by utilizing actually a big roof and structural parts in their daily life rather than just imaginative symbol.

KPOP Curve in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
June 15th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

Baekhyeon-dong is divided in almost equal parts by its main café street. The buildings in the surrounding areas are similarly subdivided by their function; the lower and ground levels are commercial, and the first and second levels are typically residential. Amidst this sea of homogeneity, these structures engage in a quiet struggle for distinction, through the variation of form and materials, Of these, the building at street address number 582 is a music agency owned by an IT company. Sitting at a fortuitous corner, it serves as a rare contrast to the numerous other constructions in Baekhyeon-dong that fail to make the most of their locations.

This plan is a project of the store combination house which is not seized with the established concept such as “the Japanese food stores such as cafe” in “dwelling, such as a shop”. Because we were the land where a site was built along former Tokaido of the Minakuchi inn which was the 50th post town of fifty-three stages of the Tokaido, the building did it with the placement plan that we prepared in neighboring cityscape and did first floor region with simple space constitution to assume a store, second floor region a house.
