Tanaka Clinic in Shizuoka, Japan by Akiyoshi Takagi & Associates

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Article source: Akiyoshi Takagi & Associates

This orthopedic surgery clinic is located in the suburbs of a regional city.
The site is former farmland that faces the intersection of a major road. The area has been designated for controlled urbanization, and there are still numerous fields and greenery nearby.
We first chose to make the building a one-story structure that followed the intersection. This would help spread awareness of the clinic among passing drivers and people waiting at the traffic light, and would also give the neighboring agricultural land access to sunlight. Separating the entrance and exit from the intersection would make access by vehicle easy.

Oeuf in Tokyo, Japan by Flat House

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Article source:Flat House

There are several relatively large parks in Musashino, Tokyo and this small building was built in front of one of them – Nogawa Park. The owners are a young married couple in their 20s. Both of them art graduates who have jobs in companies where they are able to demonstrate their artistic senses and creative skills. They dreamed of having a building like a “small art museum”. They also wished for a gallery, a cafe, and a studio on the first floor, as well as a small living space on the second floor.

3.1 Phillip Lim MICROCOSM in Tokyo, Japan by Schemata Architects / Jo Nagasaka

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Schemata Architects / Jo Nagasaka

This is 3.1 Phillip Lim 2014 Pop- Up store at Shinjuku Isetan, which opens from April 2014 for six months.
This time the shop is located on the third floor of the department store, which had a space with a strong character. We attempt to make five renewals in 6 months, and at this stage we have done two renewals.
In this project, we focus on the brand philosophy of 3.1 Phillip Lim. Several sets of “almost” opposing words are given. “Almost” is the keyword that represents the wide scope of their design directions, and also it liberates their ways of thinking. The keywords are as follows.

CABANE de ZUCCa SHIBUYA PARCO in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

This is the renovation of CABANE de ZUCCa SHIBUYA PARCO. When commissioned for the project, my initial thought was “Unbelievable….Can’t be true!”, because the CABANE de ZUCCa flagship in Omotesando was the shop I admired most when I was a boy fresh out of high school, although I was not a fashion-conscious type. I didn’t dare to enter but only peeked inside from the street, and I was intrigued and fascinated by the simple yet sophisticated shop design composed of galvanized steel frames-such material was rarely used for a shop interior during that time. The impression of the shop space still remains vivid in my memory.

TAKAHASHI HIROKO OSHIAGE STUDIO in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

We renovated the old steel building, originally used as a factory / office, into a workspace for an artist to use for the next several decades. In order to improve the building performance, we applied fireproof coating and structural reinforcement. The construction of the original building was based on the value of “quantity over quality.” As a result, you can see various gaps and distortions all over the building after 40 years, which are made even more clearly visible by newly applied coating and finishes. We intend to transform these gaps and distortions into unique spaces where one encounters unexpected experiences.

S-house in Saitama, Japan by YuusukeKarasawa Architects

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Article source: YuusukeKarasawa Architects

The project is a small house built in a residential area near Omiya station in Saitama. Two 50m2 floors are cross over in two levels on a site that measures around 100 m2. Each level is quartered, two opposing floors of which are elevated. The eaves surrounded at the middle of the ceiling height of the other two floors intertwine with the elevated floors, creating a space characterized by a complex network. The elevated floors of the two levels continue to a diagonal wall, as well as to the floors above. The floors branch out again to continue above, staggering against the exterior eaves to compose a uniquely intricate elevation. This complicated structural logic is applied not just in the elevation but throughout the interior space as well, where the floors themselves entwine diagonally, with a void that looks out to the opposing space created at the center of this complicated floor. Although this opposing space seen from the void appears to continue visually, one can only arrive at it by traveling through the complicated levels, and taking a drastic detour after moving to a different floor. While visually adjacent, the flow is one that requires a long traveling distance.The commonly understood three dimensional depth and the sense of distance are being disturbed, creating architectural spaces where various distances become complicated, much like what is happening in infospheres like the internet. This architecture realizes such network–type spaces, where various distances become increasingly complex, as a “network of complex levels” in which multiple levels are networked and layered over one another. Our hope is that this complex, layered network space will become a new architectural form that captures the various activities borne out of today’s informational society, where diversity and order are being demanded at the same time.
