Mar y Tierra is a restaurant that provides Spanish cuisine and wine. It stands at the end of the back alley with high level visibility.

Spanish buildings’ usage change with lapse of time. And you can see this from the appearance of the buildings’ exterior or as a total. There are many interesting building examples where the old and the new coexist well. This time, we were inspired by this present Spain, when designing Mar y Tierra.

House with a large hipped roof in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source:  Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This is a house for a family of four, situated on one of the lots for sale at a newly developed area in “satoyama” or semi-natural woodlands. The land is too large for a simple program requested by the client: a private house with a garage for two cars. Taking advantage of the large site area, we proposed a spacious one-story house that is open to the surrounding neighborhood, based on a design concept of “connecting space to nature”. The site faces two streets on the south and the north sides and no fences are installed along the both borders. The front yards on the both sides visually serve as pubic park although they are not accessible by non-residents.

FLEUVE in Hamamatsu City, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates 

The client, who is a hair stylist a salon owner, requested us to design a house with a hair salon. It is an exclusive and luxurious hair salon where the salon owner himself provides all services, and the number of clients is limited to only two at the same time. Our design strategy is to minimize the size of the salon, to create a compact and intimate space where the hair stylist gives utmost attention and professional service to the customer. On the contrary, we provide the maximum floor area of the house. The glass-clad salon has a stylish and sharp atmosphere, but the sharpness is softened by greenery in the front yard and low and deep eaves above it.

House of Toilet in Ibukijima Island, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Archtiects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Archtiects

In the traditional local house in Ibukijima Island, the toilet is mostly established in a small cottage separated from the main house. In Ibukijima Island, the toilet is a peripheral space that is repelled and excluded from the main house.

The relation between the main house and the separated cottage resembles the relation between the main land and isolated Ibukijima island or between a big city and a remote district somewhere. Now, Ibukijima island is only connected with liner from Kanonji city of the main land, and the small isolated island serves as the periphery of the main land and the country of Japan.
