House in Kitakarasuyama, Japan by Mizuishi Architects Atelier

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Article source: Mizuishi Architects Atelier  

This is a small house built in the corner plot that is before coming to a dead end. Residents are husband and wife and two young boys. It is the location of the favorable conditions facing the roads in south and east. But because the neighborhood residents come and go , it was a challenge how to take the outside and how to open the inside, even while making living areas calm.

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.

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Article source: ninkipen!

This is a new construction for a pharmacy in front of a general hospital.

We considered how the architecture itself could become a symbol in the town, but unlike other pharmacies filling the streets with big, showy graphic signage.

The home-for-all in Kesennuma is designed and built as a gathering space for a fishing community that severely suffered from the Tsunami in 2011. It is located at Kesennuma’s Oya fishing harbor that serves as a center for the local fishing activities and community life. It’s a shelter in which fishermen can take a rest, a place where the wives would wait for their husbands to return [with the catch] and sometimes a marketplace.

Okazaki House in Aichi Prefecture, Japan by Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

Article source: Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

The generation gap has become a problem in Japan in recent years. There are an increasing number of two-family homes, as well as houses built on the lots of parents’ houses. This house is one of the latter. Although the residents are parents and child, solicitude should be expressed with this not-so-large site. This house is a one-story building with a shed roof, which lowers the roof height on the side of the parents’ house, resulting in wide views maintained with open sky from the parents’ house.

A weekend house facing to the Sagami Bay with view to Mt. Fuji and Enoshima. The site is just 3 x 8m with 60% of footprint, and the building has become 3-stories almost automatically because the ground floor had to be a piloti by consideration of the storm surge.
