L House in Hirafu in Niseko, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: Florian Busch Architects

The L House in Hirafu is a private holiday residence in Niseko, Hokkaido. Following the escarpment that defined the topography in prehistoric times, the site is a steep slope with un-compromised views of Mount Yotei. Despite being located not far from the House on the Slopes, the ground conditions here vary so drastically that excavating the mountain would lead to massive reinforced retaining walls and hence a prohibitive increase in cost. In response to such constraints and in order to exploit the site’s view, we proposed a house in the trees.

The house is designed for a couple, and is a wooden three stories house that is built at urban narrow site. Around the site is the mixed-use area where small houses, small factories, and small office buildings coexist together without any harmony.

Takeo Kikuchi Store in Shibuya, Tokyo by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

When we were commissioned to design this store, it was a year after the Great Tohoku Earthquake. From experiencing such great disaster we realized the importance of communication in communities, and began to question the present situation of retail stores that are typically glass-clad buildings with no operable windows, where no interaction between street and store would happen.

Sliding Door House in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This house was built for a husband-and-wife couple and their two children. Overlooking a field of sweet potatoes, the quiet and tranquil site lies adjacent to a house occupied by the client’s parents. The space that lies between these two houses is used by local residents as a path, and retains a sense of easygoing, neighborly charm. In order to preserve a rich sense of these connections between nature and people, we decided to install a large sliding door in the front of the house.

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Article source: MDS Architect

Given Tokyo’s high land prices and laws that regulate construction on small sites, most clients wish to make the most of the space available to them. It is no exaggeration to say that architects make their own rules and solve the conundrums that arise with clients as if solving a puzzle.
