Shonan Christ Church in Kanagawa, Japan by Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Article source: Takeshi Hosaka Architects

A protestant church stands at a rich green residential area which is 10-minutes away from Shonan beach on foot. The chapel of the 50-year old church became too small and it was therefore decided that a new church would be constructed on a different site. Church authorities said that the passages of the Bible are read and heard in service. Therefore, “We wish to have a chapel appropriate to give praise to the Lord.

Nakagawa ShotenOmotesnado Shop & Office in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka / Schemata Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: Jo Nagasaka / Schemata Architects

At first I was pleasantly surprised to discover this land filled with such lush greenery in Aoyama, in the middle of Tokyo. I wanted to provide the same kind of pleasant surprise to customers of this shop, both on the first and second floors.  The building stood there, simple and open towards the existing greenery, and seemed to harmonize with the vitality of the land. Respecting such surrounding environment, we tried to minimize the infill construction and composed the interior with furniture instead.
