Slice of the City in Hyogo, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd 

Nishinomiya is a city located between Osaka and Kobe. The site is situated in a residential neighborhood with typical block layout. According to the local construction policy, there needs to be a fifty-centimeter setback from the site boundary, which allows a one-meter narrow gap between the houses. Normally, each household will have the windows facing the public roads with the curtains shut to keep its privacy. Therefore, openings as such are not providing the occupants with much light, ventilation or views.

CYIN in Asahikawa, Japan by archi LAB.t+m

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: archi LAB.t+m

Located in Asahikawa in Hokkaido Prefecture, the house was built on a neighbouring plot situated on the southern end of the owner’s family’s home. Due to the climatic conditions of Asahikawa – an inland town with an extraordinary amount of snowfall in winter, and with a dramatic 40 degrees temperature difference between the summer and winter months – the design brief called for an effective architectural solution that not only incorporates good snow management system but also one that is able to minimise heat build up in summer, and reduce the pressure on heaters in winter.
