Global style in Tokyo, Japan by Process5 Design

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Article source: Process5 Design

The first Tokyo branch of Global Style, a made-to-order suit shop, has opened in Kanda, the textile quarter of eastern Tokyo. Kanda is home to a number of pharmaceutical and trading companies and it was assumed that the main customer target would be businessmen passing the shop. As it is also within walking distance from Akihabara, it was considered that people who normally don’t have much to do with suits would also pass by.

Ginza Steak TAJIMA in Tokyo, Japan by Doyle Collection

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Article source: Doyle Collection

Shiny wooden paneled walls surround the interior along with the counter. These panels exude dignity and the texture create tension and high-quality mood. “Ginza Steak TAJIMA” made its grand opening at Ginza, Tokyo, one of the leading cities in Japan. Initially, our client’s needs were to create high quality and dignity interior using genuine materials. After having further hearing, we noticed that our client was always very familiar with stones. Firstly, we proposed the idea of using solid board panels instead of stones to constitute the walls. As for the base, we cut out big horse chestnut solid board panels into 13 mm thickness, commonly used for making counters with one piece. These specially-manufactured panels have different grain pattern expressions.

Membrene in Stratum in Nagoya, Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

“Membrane in Stratum” is an installation that wraps around the interior space. The concept of human activity is emphasised by the graduation of translucency through the membrane. The membrane regulates depth and boundaries. We can divide the room in many ways by the penetration, reflectance and absorption of light. We can change the function of the room at our will. A dynamic space is born from the shadows that reflect of the membrane surface and vibrantly decorate the room.

Yotsuya Tenera in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Article source: Key Operation Inc.

The project site is in a five-minute walk from Yotsuya Station located in a quiet residential area right behind the Shinjuku Street. This area holds many temples, shrines and also fairly dense housing. Like a spreading network of space, those houses and complexes fill the blank spaces between the streets and alleys.

This housing complex was planned to be built on the site of a crank space with 10m of the frontage and 17m in depth. Due to the regulation for Shinjuku Ward studio apartments, 12 units of the housing complex was planned out including 9 units of less than 30m² of the floor area and 3 units of more than 30 m².

Villa Saitan in Kyoto, Japan by Eastern design office

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Article source: Eastern design office

The site is in Nishioji-hachijo, Kyoto. From the main street we enter into a covert place along an alley of 4 meters in width. This construction is a collective housing consisting of 11 units.  The impersonality of segmental housing complex is completely concealed in this architecture.  Instead it is built to be seen as one big house. The architecture is covered with a wall in which holes are cut. The shape of the holes resembles a trunk, leaves, a root and bulbs. It also can be seen as clouds floating over the trees. Concrete shape which is based on nature turns into a hollow cave, light, and sunbeams filtered through trees.
