While feeling the nature of the wind, they want to live comfortably.
And wherever the house, they can feel a sign of the family.
sense of distance between a family
sense of distance between the neighbors
sense of distance between the town
Each other are connected, but the house has a moderate sense of distance.

Sojitz REIT Advisors K.K. is an asset management company for NIPPON REIT Investment Corporation (NRT), a listed Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The new address for its relocation is a 36 year old building. The interiors, built to standard office specifications, had been designed in a uniform manner, and gave off an oppressive feel.

This work was made for the exhibition, “Measuring: This much, That much, How much?” held at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT from February 20th to May 30th, 2015.
I designed this in collaboration with MUJI, using their first furniture product, the steel shelving unit.
First, I began the project by discussing the importance of this steel shelving unit with the designers at MUJI to study what this product meant for them.

This project is for a family of five in the middle of a small mountain where is able to overlook Mt. Sakurajima beyond the Kagoshima bay. The scenery of Kagoshima bay could say just amazing. It would be great if we could design architecture that connects the beautiful scenery and us instead of divides this relationship by itself.

It is a nursery school that was constructed in the new land readjustment area.In the site, there is “Satoyama”, a special type of natural environment that is influenced by human beings, which has the affluent nature that is uncommon in Tokyo. By readjustment of the land, the affluent nature as well as original view and experience of the Satoyama where people were connected have been lost.

Until some time ago, there were, we are told, 12 bars spread over three 2-storey houses on this 50 m2 plot on Kiyamachidori, adjacent to one of Kyoto’s most intricate network of night alleys, Pontocho, where a vibrant mixture of bars, brothels, inns, dwellings, shops have for centuries created an urban atmosphere of essential Kyoto nightlife. With an unobtrusive high-end restaurant next to a (visually less subtle) cheap yakitori, with a hidden gem of a ryokan at the end of the narrowest of side-alleys across an enigmatic place commanding courage to enter, any walk here leads to eventual surprises.
