R4 in Tokyo, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Florian Busch Architects 

The office, perhaps more than any other single building type of the present day, carries the true notions of the ideologies it is born in.

The R4 building addresses the question how scale and location inform an inner-city office type, and how exactly this contextual necessity might in fact perfectly reflect an environment of unforced, informal, perhaps even natural work efficiency.

Minä perhonen koti in Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

minä perhonen is a fashion brand and we performed the interior design for their new directly-managed shop minä perhonen koti. The shop mainly showcasing household goods is found on the 1st floor of the Shonan T-SITE complex, where many tenants are located around a Tsutaya book store. The name of the store “koti”, meaning house in Finnish, derives from the fact that it handles everyday life items, such as cushions and tableware. Thus, deliverables included a space to carefully present small objects and showcase product line-ups with color variations.

WALL CLOUD in Tokyo, Japan by Ryuichi Sasaki / SASAKI ARCHITECTURE

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: Ryuichi Sasaki / SASAKI ARCHITECTURE

In recent years, various renovation projects have been attempted for a warehouse building, at which a legendary disco, “Juliana’s Tokyo”, once existed as a symbol of the Tokyo waterfront in the early 1990s. However, the attic part of the former discotheque on the second floor remained untouched for a long time, since it had a low ceiling height of 2.1m with only 1.7m under the beams, causing an oppressive feeling in the space.

BLISS in Kanagawa, Japan by CUBO design architect

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: CUBO design architect

This hair salon “BLISS” is a tenant interior design project on the second floor of the building, located near the Komachi St. in Kamakura. Request from the client is hybrid of 2 main identity in Kamakura, luxury and surf culture, which is a proposed analysis of preference and age group of the target that comes from the client’s experience. We set the light effect to enjoy different feeling from natural light in daytime to indirect illumination at night. In the entrance, after walking throw 2 main gate silently on the carpet as a check in high class hotel, counseling and reception counter is placed as if a concierge desk. Next to the counter, waiting space surrounded by white bamboo has a function of a buffer between cut space and lounge space. Between cut space and shampoo space, green screen is installed as a see throw partition, creating the soft atmosphere of the space. We challenged to direct two atmosphere in one space by changing contrast of light effect with material.
