Wooden Box House in Saitama, Japan by Suzuki architects

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: Suzuki architects

A house-cum-office for the mother who runs a local hair salon, and for the father who works as a writer for 40 years. On the first floor, there is a salon and a dressing/sleeping room in the back for the mother. When windows are open, wind goes through the large space under the eaves facing the town. Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden, and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives. This architecture has a simple plan reflecting the couple’s lifestyles, and wood over time gives the taste and warmth to architecture in various ways.

“House in hieidaira” in Shiga, Japan by Tato architects

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Tato architects

Located in a rural part of Japan on the flank of Mount Hiei north of Kyoto, this house was designed for an artist who required a studio, living space as well as to accommodate his parents. The house has been designed as a collection of three independent but related structures that reference the local vernacular of predominantly small pitched roof cottages. It was thought that to try to accommodate all of the required programmatical functions in one structure would result in a too large building. Also there were concerns from the planning authority that activities in the studio may result in disturbance to neighbouring residents.

Yutaka Kindergarten in Saitama, Japan by SUGAWARADAISUKE

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: SUGAWARADAISUKE 

Yutaka Kindergarten is built on a steady philosophy of play-based education, encouraging children to develop their thinking actively. Space that offer diversity of experiences by stimulating children to explore and develop their thinking was required to practice this education policy. In order to respond to its needs, we traced the word “kindergarten” to its origin – “children’s garden” – and converted the site into gardens for diverse children’s activities. Three approaches were adopted to realize the ‘gardens of learning through play’.

A home for a couple and child stands on a lot 3.7 meters wide and 17 meters deep. Planning of the home focused on how to develop a pleasant layout with sufficient perspective for this slim lot. The lots to the left and right were also for sale and of similar breadth and depth. The plan assumed that spacing between the houses would be tight. Morover, the site is on a grade that rises by over 2 meters from the street facing. The ground floor where the entrance is located gradually submerges underground toward the back, where no inlets are possible.

Ishibe House in Shiga Prefecture, Japan by ALTS DESIGN OFFICE

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Article source: ALTS DESIGN OFFICE 

Concept

The hope of this client is to live in a house just like a renovated warehouse. The type of houses is diversified into various kinds, and such a house is prevalent on the ground of financial terms. However, there’re problems as regarding heat insulation capacity and construction to convert a warehouse into a house. As a result, it costs the same amount as new construction. Therefore, we built a new house like a renovated warehouse pursuing diversified and productive open spaces.
