1.8M Width House in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

A house where light shines in and fresh air flows between the floating floors.

The size of the property is approximately width 2.5m and depth 11m.  This small and narrow piece of land is a typical “eels’ bed” site, where one can reach his/her arm from left wall to right wall even though buildings stand very tight and compact next to one another.  We have tried to reserve as much space as possible as well as to provide psychological openness for the resident.  The house has been designed to follow the concept “A house with playfulness where people and cats live happily”.

Article source: Coo planning

Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi  A private house of the solitary life built near the Kyocera dome.

Board sticking 1 year passes after completion, and which is an outer wall and board sticking of interior plywood, it’s when it’s being matched.

When I’d like to make a fascinating house because I build hard, you speak and housing has started.

NOIE -cooperative house in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

Designing the relationship of collectivity and individuality

A cooperative house with eleven dwelling units located in the suburb of western Tokyo. Firstly, skeleton plan was provided to the potential residents. Infill design was developed based on this skeleton frame. Under such scheme, the challenge was to develop the space dynamically through interactivity of the skeleton and infill design instead of simply adjusting the infill design into the skeleton frame.

BEAUTY LIBRARY in Tokyo, Japan by Nendo

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: Nendo

A composite store that consists of a specialty boutique for organic cosmetics and a café, tucked away on a street behind Aoyama-Street. For a woman to enhance her beauty, a close linkage between inner and outer body care is required. We therefore designed a service and space based on a concept that fuses to the maximum the features of cosmetics with food & drink. One is able to leaf through information on various products using a tablet and casually try out every single product in the store as if ordering a beverage, while enjoying your drink and food that enhances beauty from within. What’s more, QR codes are placed alongside each product, which enables customers to take home the information about that product on their mobile device and purchase them online later. In this way, the store not only sells cosmetic products, but is also a place where knowledge relating to them can be obtained. Therefore it can be described as a “library” like space with well-organized wooden shelves. Moreover, a “self-study room” feature was added amongst the shelves, with in-built café tables and bracket lights. The logo was designed to give an image of a square bookshelf filled with letters. In addition an “annex” hidden across the courtyard was designed so as not to just function as a café, but as a space that can serve as a party room, and hold small events and workshops.

Nikken Space Design Osaka Office in Japan

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Article source: NIKKEN SPACE DESIGN LTD

More than just creative
This is an in-house office plan of our design office. Approximately 30 staff members working in our office, which is located in the central part of Japan’s second largest city of Osaka, are engaged in the interior designing of a wide range of facilities in the public and private sectors, such as government agencies and company offices as well as hotels, hospitals, and educational institutions. Our new office needs to be a place ensuring more creativeness and higher productivity than others do, and we had to understand the nature of the staff members when we launched the office. Our staff members consist of professionals, including designers, computer graphic (CG) renders, and computer-aided design (CAD) operators. Each of the staff members belonging to the office is respected as an independent talented creator. Therefore, unlike typical enterprises, the office is of very flat organizational structure. Usually, each team of four to five members assigned promotes a separate project, and the team members are strongly aware of their organic ties. Therefore, we noticed at an early designing stage of the office that a fixed desk layout was not suitable to our style. As described above, the office produces value that it can provide to society from the character and talent of each individual designer. From this perspective, there was an opinion that the idea of making a highly uniformed workspace did not fit the staff members. Accordingly, how to achieve a creative place, where the character of each individual was respected and the organic connections of the individuals could be managed at a high degree of freedom, became the biggest theme of this project.

OUTLINE

This project is a self-build pavilion on campus. Responding to the light, it shows unique morphing between different geometries. One is the fern, biological swirl form, and the other is the roof, architectural triangular form. These traditional design motifs seamlessly merge into a livable architecture by using today’s electronic technologies.

ORIGAMI ark in Himeji, Japan by Matsuya Art Works

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: Matsuya Art Works

This showroom is built to sustain the tanners in the leather manufacturing business, which is local traditional industry in Himeji City, a suburban city in Japan. The showroom highlights the enormous range of leather materials that makes the clients strength and meets his wish to communicate and show the diversity of his products. This specificity leads us to focus on the interior design that allows us to better display the project rather than the exterior shape of the building. The request was to display over 3000 leather items in a very narrow exhibition space limited to 300 m². In order to respond to this range, a second and third floor must be built, however separating the display into several floors might not leave the wanted impression of the huge diversity of leather products offered by the house. Therefore, the Idea was to build an enormous three-dimensional fixture in a single exhibition room. A huge frame was built in shape of a jungle gym using 100x100mm² square steel pipes, creating a three dimensional display fixture. The Grand dimensions of this fixture creates in the visitors mind an impressive understanding of the overwhelming range of products with a single glance. Moreover, leaving more space to move freely provides an experience similar to exploring a jungle gym inside making the discovery of the leather materials’ variety more exciting.
