Article source: CUBO design architect

This hair salon “BLISS” is a tenant interior design project on the second floor of the building, located near the Komachi St. in Kamakura. Request from the client is hybrid of 2 main identity in Kamakura, luxury and surf culture, which is a proposed analysis of preference and age group of the target that comes from the client’s experience. We set the light effect to enjoy different feeling from natural light in daytime to indirect illumination at night. In the entrance, after walking throw 2 main gate silently on the carpet as a check in high class hotel, counseling and reception counter is placed as if a concierge desk. Next to the counter, waiting space surrounded by white bamboo has a function of a buffer between cut space and lounge space. Between cut space and shampoo space, green screen is installed as a see throw partition, creating the soft atmosphere of the space. We challenged to direct two atmosphere in one space by changing contrast of light effect with material.

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

We designed a playful and exciting environment suitable for implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy, which focuses on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently. In doing so, we created a space in which seasonal changes can be experienced to the fullest by taking advantage of the glass windows facing a garden outside of the building to usher the great outdoors into the kindergarten.

Anguilla House in Fukuoka, Japan by Shinji Yoshida

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Shinji Yoshida

This project is a family house for five people. The site is long and narrow like the bed of an eel, and is 20 feet by 60 feet.

The location was initially difficult to maximize sunlight because of the surrounding houses that crowded the site. However, through a series of steps a resolution was achieved. First, three parking spaces were created at the owner’s request.

House Wago in Shizuoka, Japan by msd-office

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: msd-office

This residence stands in the suburbs of Hamamatsu, and was designed for a young couple with children. The building consists of a two stories high rectangular box with a meter deep balcony, which functions both as a semi-outdoor corridor connecting the rooms on the upper floor, and as a roof over the ground floor entrance porch and veranda. The 10m wide horizontal opening on the balcony wall made structurally free by use of cantilever, gives character to the outer appearance of the building. The building is situated on the northern side of an irregularly shaped land plot. In the double-height ceiling LDK, the large opening creates a sense of unity with the yard on the southern side, in addition to “borrowing” the forest on the south-western wide as part of the scenery. The open interior space was designed by extending dynamically both in the horizontal and the vertical direction.
