Sites that were originally like this would have normally been given up on. The TT Architects approach to design utilises these negative elements, converting them into positive ones.
The client came to us wishing for the extension situated on the east-side of the block and adjoining the pre-existing main building be removed, and that a building of a similar scale be built in its place.

M-House in Nagoya, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: Akinori+Maki Yoshimura

A house as a sreet

A small house built on a narrow site. The width of the site is 5m, just the same as the street in front, and the house is even narrowed down into 3mwidth tubular space.This tubular space separates into two branches,one protrudes straight in the air to create a void underneath for the parking,one slightly shifts down to form an entrance space.This 22m long entrance space is not a closed corridor but almost like a open street, both sides are connected to the environments, even has a branch and a forked point, which leads you to the other side of the site, a little garden and a green road with a stream. This “street” introduces the sense of urban scales into this small house.

K-HOUSE in Nagoya city, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

A small house located on a steep slanting slope. The client simply wanted a life with a blessing of nature nearby and the beautiful townscape in distance. The site was steeply sloped down, almost like a cliff, leaving only a narrow platform wide enough for a car. We first had an idea to excavate the ground to generate a living space.  Corresponding the nature form, heterogeneous and flexible space would retrieve the enchantment of the site. Not a house constructed on a cliff, but a habitat generated by the nature form of the cliff. A habitat like a pit or a shed posteriorly discovered in the terrains of landscape.
