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.

end…Link Beauty Salon in Osaka, Japan by Yasunari Tsukada Design

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Yasunari Tsukada Design

The name of this beauty salon was inspired by the owner’s passionate desire to turn it into a destination for “the last word in beauty”. Although the design was first completed about five years ago, the previous premises soon grew to feel a little cramped due to the rapidly expanding size of the team, which prompted the owner to move to a new and larger location.

Hostel in kyonan, Japan by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

This private training center has 2 capsule-hotel and 3 tatami-style buildings. They are positioned with various angles of axis and all the rooms have a view of the Tokyo Bay, each one becoming a space like a ship’s cabin. The client requested guest units that had the possibility of future relocation or addition. While clearing these requirements and in order to ensure the necessary dimension for the bedroom spaces with economy, we utilized a wooden structural frame on a standard freight-truck of adequate dimensions.

For Australian skin care brand Aesop, we planned the interior and exterior of the new store on Meiji Street in Shibuya. The store is located on the first floor of a three-storey building situated between two taller buildings; the space is long and slender – 2.6m in width, 7.8m in depth and 3.9m in maximum height. We aimed to work with these proportions to provide a welcoming and intimate space for communication with customers.

Nakagawa Office Extension in Nara city, Japan by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

This project is for an addition to the former premises of a company that we had built a new building for 2 years ago. With almost no changes to the original, the addition is structurally separated, with the washroom, kitchen, entrance and stairs and main circulation of the building now provided by the addition. In order to preserve the amount of parking and stay within the building footprint limitation, the building has a shallow plan of 2x20m allowing for the conversion to be completed within the allowable budget and time frame. This is architecture of the ‘facade’.

T-Nursery in Dazaifu, Fukuoka, Japan by Uchida Architect Design Office

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Article source: Uchida Architect Design Office

One room (9m span) childcare room

The nursery school built in Dazaifu, a city located near Fukuoka city, had to be extended for two classes in order to increase the accommodation of children. Considering the nationwide decline of birthrates, the number of accommodating children may decrease in the near future. I decided to constitute this building as one room space (9m span) which does not have a pillar inside of building, which becomes very useful for conversions to various uses (playroom etc.).
