House in Miyamoto, Japan by Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Article source: Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

At this house – a residence designed for a family of three and their many belongings – the client requested that the members of the family can feel close to each other regardless of where they are in the house. Moreover, private rooms were not needed because they feel that it is lonely to withdraw into one’s space, and storage space was also unnecessary because they did not want to tuck things away. As a result of trying to find a form that allows the whole house to feel like one room while securing sufficient space for their belongings at the same time, we proposed a design to connect the flooring with a height difference of 700 mm, where the different levels can be used as tables and shelves. The floors build up as two spiral shapes, joins at the living room, and then separate into two again before arriving at the rooftop deck. By using this combination of two spirals, we were able to create multiple paths inside the house that allows different room compartments and changes in the circulation, equipping the house to be able to accommodate changes in the lifestyle of the client.

The project took place in Kichijoji (one of Tokyo’s suburban towns)’s Harmonica Yokochi, a wondrous bystreet that still retains the atmosphere of black-market stalls during the post-World War II period. We designed the interior for a small Yakitori bar that sits on the edge of the street.

Hat house in Kobe, Japan by FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

The site lying in the middle of the landscape where houses are layered towards Mt. Rokko. While sunny and irregular houses are lined up, there are many homes that open on the south side (sea side), and there is some kind of homogeneity. In building a house in this place, the inner wall was first set at an angle to the light on the south side (sea side), and the axis of the wall was inclined at 45 degrees on the plane. The outer wall was an elongated rectangle in the east and west to the east and west, and the wall extending 45 degrees was enclosed once with a frontage of 5.8 meters and a depth of 13 meters. As a result, the depth of 5.8 meters from the south opening is obliquely about 8.2 meters, so the light gradation appears more clearly. Also, due to the wall tilted at 45 degrees, the light crosses due to the difference in the depth of the space of the light that changes from the east to the west and the material changes, it melts and feels the dimensions of the light over the multidimensional. Moreover, it gives plans migratability, and it generates experiential depth to every direction.

OVULE in Tokyo, Japan by TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS 

This is a small house in a residential area in Bunkyo-ku Tokyo. We set large windows on the open south side and set a green screen as south facade by making planter boxes on each floor. The ceiling at the window is mirror finished, it functions as a device that green captures inside the room. The eaves were deeply attached to each floor, the void was divided by the planters. Keeping an appropriate distance with neighbors, we just imagined a meditation space that can live together with GREEN plants in small streets. We thought here is not ‘modest living’ of ‘small dwell’ but a ‘BIG LIFE’ of ‘SMALL DWELL’.

Beam House in Tokyo, Japan by HUGO KOHNO ARCHITECT ASSOCIATES

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: HUGO KOHNO ARCHITECT ASSOCIATES

Located on a lot with a narrow frontage, this building houses a gallery on the first floor and a residence on the second and third floors. The client requested that the gallery have a glass facade to allow good visibility from the street and be a single open space to ensure flexibility and allow for future changes in use. They also requested a separate entrance to the second-floor residential area, and a design that required no structural walls on the first floor, such as a Rahmen structure.

Article source: id inc. 

It is a shared office for creators co-organized by Japanese design office id inc. and photo and video company bird and insect Ltd. It is consist of office, library, workroom, conference room, and photo studio. As a place to create various works, space like a blank sheet without a strong concept was created. Walls that stand like drawing extension lines to the old building before its renovation partition space. The architectural structure has several openings that look continuous makes visitors feel more depth. It is a place to demonstrate how a new office for creators should be structured. The beauty of this office is that a total proposal from product planning, production, to final display can be consistently made. The pure white space has a gallery-like atmosphere so that it also functions as a place for exhibition at any time.

The site, which overlooks the rice fields and the Tateyama peaks, is located in Toyama Prefecture of the Hokuriku region.

We searched for a composition that integrates spaces with two distinct qualities: one that is free and expansive, and opens toward the rich environment; and another that is enclosed to nurture intimate relationships between the family members.

House H in Korien, Japan by Hisashi IKEDA Architects

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Article source: Hisashi IKEDA Architects

House H in Korien is sited in the suburbs of Osaka, the second biggest city in Japan. This area was developed for housing about 100 years ago. Old houses are located behind large gardens, trees, and hedges. On the other hand, relatively new houses that were built in finely divided lands aren’t able to have gardens and greens. As a result, the backs of houses reveal unintentionally and cars occupy small outside spaces.

Floating-roof House in Hyogo, Japan by y+M design office

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: y+M design office 

We planned the house for a family with small children in a residential area in Kobe City.

We had to keep both privacy and daylighting for the family because they were concerned about line of sight from other houses which are located in sloping tiers. We designed dual roofs structure, the floating roof and the lower roof. Outer walls cover the house like curtains which are hanged from the floating roof. Alley Terrace connects from the south side into the house inside. This structure makes enough ventilation and daylighting.
