It is a plan of the garage and outside structure in Nagoya city.
The house was newly built with a house maker, but I was unable to convince the manufacturer’s proposed external design and received a request.
By dividing the frame of the garage into three, guiding the light from the center high frame into the garage, connecting the frame to the entrance created a space that would unite to the outer fence.

The site is located in the central area of Sendai city, an area influenced by recent land readjustment projects. It is expected that this area will continue to develop and increase in residential population. With these circumstances in view, we designed an “urban-style” nursery school building that can efficiently accommodate increased numbers of children, while also encouraging their curiosity, creativity, and connection with the local community.

The site is located in a residential area close to central Shizuoka city.In the area,it is difficult to predict the future environment.Because a lot of houses are rebuilding due to aging.So we attempted to create a depth between the private room and the city.

This home is located in the old town area of eastern Tokyo, where the atmosphere of an industrial district still lingers. The client, who works at a large advertising agency, and his wife purchased the building site in an area where they had lived in for some years. Their primary request with regard to the design was that the house have a courtyard.

For a casual French bistro, an interior design with comfort and a proper sense of tension was pursued.
Only materials such as brass, thick solid wood, and antique scaffold planks – those that would have enhanced characteristics as they age – were used for finishes. Brass was used as eye-catchers for lights, hanger pipes, furniture knobs and handles, window frames, decorative screws, etc., in order to provide gorgeousness to the interior. The antique scaffold planks add a casual atmosphere to the space, preventing it from being too sophisticated.

It is difficult to deal with architectural elements such as stairs and handrails that don’t have direct relation to the main architectural composition.
It might be my prejudice, but architectural space gradually becomes static, when additive elements are reduced to be abstract. It also has an effect on various human activities and furniture to vividly come to front, but sometimes it appears as if they are being denied.

The residence was built on a site that looks up Himeji Castle in a historical district in Himeji, Hyogo.
The client is a couple, who lives on their own. The residence was newly planned as a place to spend their life together after their children became independent. The site is an irregular shape. A small river runs on the west side, and on the other side of the river is a residential district. On the east side, Himeji Castle can be viewed beyond at the end of the front road that has a trace of historical streetscape. The design condition was very challenging, as the site was in a irregular shape, and I proposed the facade which shows the respect to townscape of the historical city. Additionally, beyond the river on the west side, it contrastingly showed a stretch of ordinary suburbanscape.
