Jins Ageo Shop Renovation in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/ Schemata Architects

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/ Schemata Architects

JINS, one of the biggest eyewear brands in Japan, commissioned Schemata Architects to design the renewal of their Ageo shop on the occasion of its 12th anniversary. The existing shop consists of two L-shaped blocks, respectively an eyewear shop and a cafe, positioned around a square courtyard surrounded by an open corridor serving as a cozy outdoor cafe space. However, the existing building was clad in wooden panels and the courtyard and the cafe were hidden from the street.

We removed the exterior walls and installed Low-E paired glass to initiate the view towards the beautiful courtyard  from the street, while creating an impressive display of their extensive eyewear products highly visible from the street at the same time.

HAT house in Tokyo, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

The client is a couple in their 50s and both work full-time. Their plan was to rebuild their parents’ house in the urban area in order to live with their mother. The site is located in a dense residential area where one can find the remnant of good old days of Tokyo. In order to prepare for possible natural disasters in the future, the couple wished to build a house of reinforced concrete box frame construction with high resistance to fire and earthquakes. Since the site is small with a deformed shape, it was required to achieve the maximum capacity while avoiding setback-line limits on each side of the house.

A Gallery in Tokyo, Japan by Rei Mitsui Architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: Rei Mitsui Architects

It’s located in an alley close to “Cat Street” near Shibuya, Harajyuku and Omotesando.

The original exterior design was not so bad as the one of 45 years ago. Presumably it was designed by an competent architect. So, as for the exterior, we intended not to change a lot and to show the original design purely.  Actually, we only removed balconies and replaced  two sliding windows with fixed large windows.

House of Komajii in Tokyo, Japan by Kazuyuki Takeda Architects

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Kazuyuki Takeda Architects

There is the vacant house which has formed local community. “House of Komajii” in Komagome of Tokyo opened as a place where local people stay in October, 2013. Because originally this vacant house was a dormitory, the space was divided finely. Therefore about half of the building was a storeroom. When I received the request of the design, The client expected that I released the space of the storeroom in the area, and made the structure for “House of Komajii” to become independent, and rotate. (It is run now without almost taking the fee for use by the kindness of the owner.) I plan to break a wall and enlarge the space, and more people can gather in the first floor and convert the second floor to share office as source of profits.

Clover House in Okazaki, Japan by MAD Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: MAD Architects 

MAD architects have completed their first project in Japan, the Clover House kindergarten. Located in the small town of Okazaki, the school’s setting boasts views of the paddy fields and mountains, characteristic of the Aichi Prefecture. The kindergarten was originally operated out of the old family home of siblings Kentaro and Tamaki Nara, which soon became too small and unfit for expanding their educational goals. The siblings desired to create a modern educational institution where children could feel as comfortable as they do in their own homes, allowing them to grow and learn in a nurturing setting.
