Article source: Kichi Architectural Design

This residence, consisting of a design office and a master bedroom, is the result of renovating a barn which used to store farming equipment, a barn located in the rural area about an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The barn with the height of 4 m. was transformed into a loft which had two levels–the first for the meeting room and the second for the office. The lattice windows welcome the trees of the forest into the building, ushering in tranquility. The old doors of the barn have been given a new life to provide an accent for the space.

A site is an area where a residence crowds in Tokyo.

Kawanishi Fam in Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: TTArchitects

Kawanishi Fam is situated in an industrial estate in close proximity to Kurashiki station. It was originally a warehouse used for roasting coffee, but we renovated it to create an open office space. We used the top floor of the four story warehouse due to the lasting impression of the characteristically shaped ceiling, which takes the same form as the original sloped roofing of the warehouse. This ceiling was the primary motivation for us in deciding to undertake the renovation in its current location.

House in Mayuv in Kishiwada, Japan by Naoko Horibe

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: Naoko Horibe

The client requested a design that would melt into the surrounding paddy landscape as well as provide a safe, stable living environment for generations to come.

The architect responded with a plan that incorporates multiple courtyards, ensuring the privacy necessary for an open lifestyle even if homes are built on surrounding lots in the future. If two generations with different schedules eventually share the home, the courtyards will also provide a comfortable degree of distance between the living spaces occupied by various members of the household.

i.n.g in Toyota, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Article source: Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

This is the project for two-family house by reconstruction. Every time I witnessed the demolition work before reconstruction, I’ve had some uncomfortable feelings by the view of vacant land. The old house is a building containing lots of thoughts and memories for the owner and it is also a part constituting the town-scape from the community viewpoint. Therefore, based on the idea that there should be a way to renew the house while keeping the old town-scape even in reconstruction project, I proposed a house with Japanese-style outlook to fit naturally into the existing fence and external garden.
