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

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.

A house built on a narrow strip of land of 3m wide and 21m long. For this ground that looks too long and tight, we adopted a way to construct a house by reinterpreting scale, natural light, and the use of each room instead of setting one concept to design it. We made 5 specific proposals.

The House for Seven People

The original house was built 37 years ago with a mixed structure; steel on the ground floor and timber on the first floor. Since its original construction in 1977, the site around the house has dramatically changed. The two-story house is now surrounded by 7-9 story buildings in an area known as the “Urban Village“, which lies between Yamate-Dori and Megro River – a three minute walk from Fudomae Metro Station in Tokyo.
