SWITCH APARTMENT in Setagaya, Japan by YUKO SHIBATA

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Article source: YUKO SHIBATA ARCHITECTS

This is the interior design of a single home office.
This room was previously used as a residential space. It was the owner’s intent that the floor plan could be changed to completely separate the living and office sections. This request was rendered impossible, due to the original structure being of box frame type reinforced concrete construction, with almost all walls acting as supporting building frames.
The addition of two bookshelves, each with a large door, allowed us to create a space with the ability to adapt from home to office or from office to home, while leaving the original floor plan intact.

INCS Zero Factory in Nagano, Japan by Kohn Pedersen Fox

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Article source: Kohn Pedersen Fox

Nestled in the Japanese Alps, the INCS “Zero” Factory emerges from the earth and opens to the sky, creating a fusion of landscape and architecture. With a desire to express the marriage of art and technology, the new “Zero” Factory serves as a demonstration facility for the rapid prototyping technologies employed by INCS.  Like its Swiss counterpart, Nagano’s mountainous locale is home to high-tech industries—its rugged seclusion affording the focused intensity of thought and experimentation required for precision research and development.

From the 7th of May to the 10th of June 2014 there were the exhibit of Kotaro Horiuchi’s project called « Fusionner 3.0 » 2014 at Shukutoku University of Aichi’s gallery.

Fusionner
« Fusionner » comes from a French word meaning « to merge ». The architecture merge in the town just like renovations merge into inside space. Everything happens without imposing in the place. The most important thing is the inside of those places, the content with someone, or should we say, a group of people who will be actors of the activities that will take place in that space. To emphasise on those activities, the existence of architectural place or a place, which evolve smoothly, is necessary.

SoHo-Nagoya in Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

The relocation of the bookkeeping agency empied a local in Nakaku, Nagoya, which was renewed to become a place for living and working.

The living space was designed to occupy the minimum possible area. In fact, the bookshelf is the main piece of furniture of this renovation. The shelves evolve as the wall goes by and become a table and then a bed. The latter has two functions and it serves as a working space when it’s not used for sleeping. The curved layers make the whole more unified since only one object is used. Also, the curves create a harmonious space suitable for work and everyday life.

FRAME in Nakano, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

For FRAME, a low cost and short construction period were realized by substituting regular wooden frameworks for exposed concrete with FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic) that can be converted.

This house, with a studio for a husband who is a fashion photographer, is located in an area with flooding risks from torrential rains. Therefore, the entrance level is raised by 800 mm. The studio level on the first floor is lowered to maintain the ceiling height.
