Jidaiya Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan by GENETO

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: GENETO

The renovation of this historical costume makeover studio in Arashiyama, Kyoto, has been completed. A 40 year old building that seemed like a traditional old house has been renovated to a modern shop. There was a need for us to find a design solution that took into account the local-ism and landscape features of Arashiyama, Kyoto. Not many buildings consider the landscape that they inhabit. Even though there are limitations to the form and finishes of buildings due to landscape regulations around this area. The buildings that have generic tourists attraction features, historical architecture and a traditional Kyoto town houses create a miscellaneous town.

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: htmn

This project is renovation of a second-hand house that was made by the two by four method. We designed only second floor in which young couple wanted to live with daughter. Their original demand was living in large one-room without walls, but there was limit to remove walls because of structural restriction of the two by four method. 2×4 houses have been spread on account of speed and easiness of construction. However, it’s difficult to change plan in terms of house renovation.

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.

House in Izumi-Ohmiya, Japan by Tato architects

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Article source: Tato architects

A warehouse was converted into a residential space for a young couple who like bouldering which is a kind of free climbing and a sport to climb rocks of two to four meters high without lifeline.

The inside walls are designed in several leaned parts for them to attach some instruments to practice bouldering. For changing the nature of the building we came up with additional walls minimizing the modification to the existing building. As the outside walls were of ACL and the resistance against heat and rain were anticipated, they are covered with corrugated galvalume steal plates with heat insulator attached on the back.
