KKZ house in Tokyo, Japan
 by I.R.A./ International Royal Architecture

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: I.R.A./ International Royal Architecture

A two-floor residence with a basement in the cozy town of Setagaya-ku,Tokyo.

It has a half-basement free space which can be a child room in the future, the living, the kitchen, and the dining room in the middle floor, and the private space in the second floor. In spite of its restricted premise, it makes the residence so spacious by connecting these floors with voids which run through the entrance hall and above the kitchen, respectively. Furthermore, the integrated 180mm-thick LVL beams make 6m of a column-less second floor slab possible.

House with Podocarpus in Osaka, Japan by MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized.

Nagaoka City Hall “Aore” in Niigata, Japan by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: Kengo Kuma and Associates

With the growth of cities and their scale, public buildings of 20th Century were likely to be driven away to the suburbs, often as isolated concrete boxes in parking lots. We wanted to reverse this flow with Nagaoka Aore. We moved the city hall back to the center of the town and revived a real “heart of town,” which is located in a walking distance from anywhere, working along with people’s everyday life.
