House of Shiroyama in kanagawa prefecture, japan by araki sasaki architects

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Article source:  araki sasaki architects

Charred wooden planks wrap the exterior of the ‘House in Shiroyama’ by Japanese practice Araki + Sasaki architects (A+Sa), differentiating
it from its neighbors in the suburban area. The two-story wood-frame construction takes on the shape of a regular square, characterized on
the inside by the exposed natural plywood textures and surfaces and open spaces that expose the true scale of the structure from the social
areas on the ground floor.  The pitched roof gently rises on each side equally until reaching a square skylight that forms a structural ring 
allowing natural light to illuminate the entire interior.  The construction was approached from a DIY technique, using standard member sizes
and connections to allow for easy future expansion and a rational structural grid. The knots of the plywood filled and polished with epoxy resin. The ground level contains the kitchen and dining areas
on an elevated wooden platform, with a private bathroom and bedroom. The wooden beams that hold up the loft level floorboards are
left uncovered allowing a direct visual connection. A staircase at the entrance connects to the partial second story that can be used as a
living or working space.

Article source: Yuji Tanabe Architects

Armadillo is located in Kamakura, Japan. With the sea to one side and the other 3 surrounded by mountains, this town’s topography provides ideal protection from enemy. This feature led Kamakura to become the political centre of Japan in the 12th century. This site is located in a valley with a very narrow approach road ,so the carpenter was required to fabricate off-site at their workshop. The clients- a couple,her father,two dogs and a cat – bought the site with its old house four years ago. The existing house was built in the 1930s and enlarged 35years ago(this existing house do not satisfy the present earthquake-resistant standards).

House ‘M’ is located in a rural area surrounded by mountains in Yamaguchi-Prefecture, Japan. The clients, a couple who used to work long hours in the busy city, wanted a quiet house in the nature in relation to the rhythm of the sun.

This small house (100m2) was designed so that the clients would be able to wake up every morning and enjoy the soft light of the rising sun. The exterior walls of the house are made of a semi translucent tent material which allows the sun to penetrate softly inside the house.

Long Tall House in Tokyo, Japan by SPACESPACE

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: SPACESPACE

The site is located in a typical Japanese crowded residential area, just middle between two stations near to Shibuya. The house of a young married couple is on a strip of land subdivided for sale (about 4m*16m). It adjoins two paths at north and south sides, and locates on a very old retaining wall which runs along the north path and forms 3.5m height cliff. The path were too narrow to comply the current regulations, so we needed removing a part of the wall so that it could be widened.
