Light Walls House in Toyokawa, Japan by mA-style architects

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: mA-style architects

The site is in a shady location where a two-story neighboring house closely stands on the south side, and even the shade and shadow on the path intensify the impression of darkness. Therefore, the design intended to create a space with uniformly distributed light by adjusting the way of letting daylight in, and the way of directing the light. By taking into consideration the space for the residents, the functions for living, and the relationship with the surrounding environment, creation of a diversity and richness in the house was intended by controlling the concept of light.

This house stands in a nature park with an ocean view, and a mountain behind it. It was designed as a weekend house for the owner to relax while enjoying sunset views. The site is along a busy road. Therefore, the problems of noise and privacy were solved by making enough distance between the road and the building, and by using a reinforced concrete structure facade with minimal openings.

Many of the requests to us for designing a house are accompanied with a prerequisite of ensuring a house for a nuclear family at an extremely subdivided lot, to whichwe cannot easily applythe manners of architecture having been accumulated for long time in Japan. We repeated trials and errors while designing as we think we are in the formative period for a new manner.

House in Kamihachiman, Tokushima, Japan by Horibe Associates architect’s office

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Article source: Horibe Associates architect’s office

The challenge in this design was to enable a comfortable, open lifestyle despite the fact that the building site is surrounded by other homes lined up uniformly on a street running along their south side. The architects chose not to place windows on the southern side of the home, where they would look out only on neighboring houses, and instead included large windows on the northern side that take advantage of the view of a bamboo forest behind the property.
