Floating house in Ogasa, JAPAN by Shuhei Goto Architects

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: Shuhei Goto Architects 

A concept of this house is a “new openness” in densely built-up residential areas. The site is surrounded by the houses of neighbors, so the main theme of design is to form “a space excellent in privacy” and “an open space with brightness”.A 360 degree opening has been realized by using a steel frame between the wooden first and second floor. A living room is surrounded by the sky on every side, and a resident doesn’t have to care about neighbors. This house can bring him/her a bright and healthful life.

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.
