This cafe was built on the seafront facing the entrance of Tokyo Bay at the tip of the peninsula Yokosuka.

Wooden counter table length 6.3m in cafes is placed under the continuous windows of the sea side. You can drink coffee while watching the ocean in front. We’ve considered the height of the floor as the sea looks good from this counter. Our first design about this cafe was to determine the height of the floor And we considered the effective evacuation route for the tsunami when the earthquake.

Fujigaoka T in Kanagawa, Japan by ChikaraOhno / sinato

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: ChikaraOhno / sinato

This project is a home for a family of three in one unit of a twenty-six year old apartment building.

Although the previous ceiling height was a uniform 2450mm, after checking the structural drawings we realized that the existing height was the minimum required due to the placement of a services pit above, with the slab actually much higher in places, so we proceeded in planning the layout considering this height.

Enzo. Gallery and Office in Gifu, Japan by OGAWASEKKEI

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: OGAWASEKKEI 

This project is to create a gallery and office-living space for a landscape architect by renovating a rental property of two-story wooden building located at a short distance from central part of Gifu city by Nagara River. Since this is a rental property, the renovation is focused on finishing of wall, floor, and ceiling rather than changing plan or section plans to create a space. The first floor will be the gallery and the second floor will be the office-living space.

This house is very tiny.

Footprint of this house, including the biscuit shop that is part of the house, is only 26m2. The entire house is divided into seven split levels without partitions and all levels are connected by a staircase situated in the middle of the house.  From the shop on the ground floor, this metal staircase connects the kitchen and the dining on 1.5 level, then the living space on 2 level, and finally the sleeping area on the top floor that is shared by all family members.  A second set of concrete steps continue from the ground floor to the basement, housing the shop and its bathroom.

House in Nichinan, Japan by TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

A wooden house of the box type built in Nichinan-shi, Miyazaki.
Control of its eyes was a problem because there was an unmanned railroad station on the south side.
A living room was established in the 2nd floor and the eyes from a home in the station were exchanged.
Though the exterior material was simple as urethane painting finishing in the material as \”wrap siding\” which came into fashion before, I aimed at the symbolic outward appearance from location as the house built in front of the station.

CALDO in Mizonokuchi, Japan by Doyle Collection co.ltd., Aiji Inoue

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Doyle Collection co.ltd., Aiji Inoue

CALDO is a national chain fitness facility where customers casually enjoy Hot Yoga, Fitness, Pilates and Pressurizing Training. There are mixtures of “stillness” and “motion” in the programs. One of our challenges was how to design the individual space with the surrounding relations. As principle axis, we decided to use “COLORS” that will associate psychologically when customers enter the facility.
