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.
