House in Nagaoka, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Ishii + Future-scape Architects

It locates in the downtown of the city with 300,000 people in northern region where it snows heavily with 3 m deep at maximum. The family is composed of grandparents, parents and 2 children.  The building of the laundry factory and shop that the client family run was left and only a part of the house was rebuilt.

The factory and the house were not connected due to the building regulation that controlled the direct connection between the old building and the new one. Instead, between both buildings, an alley covered with big eaves was disposed. The eaves that is covered with prevent the alley from the snow in the winter and the alley functions as semi-indoor space for connecting both buildings.

Vision in Yamanashi, Japan by Takehiko Nez Architects

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Takehiko Nez Architects

“Extension of spatial relations”

The existing building built along a trunk road in a suburban city, had been converted by ourselves from a jewelry shop into the hairdressers 7 years ago. This time the client asked us to extend the floor area and change the facade to a more inviting design. Therefore we designed the extension by introducing a subtle element, which works in the same way as a veil changes a person’s facial expression.

House S is located in a quiet residential area in a center of Tokyo. The site is of the house is a cul-de-sac, removed from the main thoroughfares, and was once a samurai residence, so their are old pine and zelkova trees in the area. Such surroundings, even in the midst of the city, significantly impacted the design.

The house includes many gardens on each floor of the house, to bring the surrounding landscape into the house. In the end, the house will be part of this larger landscape, and in the meantime the green surroundings will help with privacy.

Earth-Bricks in Chiba, Japan by Atelier Tekuto

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

Why “Soil”?

“Soil” is the most popular structural building material in the world building industry. However, concrete and steel has been used more in 20th and 21st century. As a result, chaotic non-characteristic world is spreading out, and regionality has been disappearing. Japan is originally rich in forest, and developed high recognition of wood culture over thousands of years. Now, Japan is facing the situation that the uses of imported wood are increasing compared to domestic timber due to the economical reason. At the same time, we are on the “century of environment”, cannot avoid researching environmental friendly material and structure. In order to resolve problems described above, we think “material not to be influenced by economy” and “environmental friendly material” are essential.

Cell Bricks in Tokyo, Japan by Atelier Tekuto

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

For this particular project, I wanted to accomplish two things. The first was to combine opposing architectonics; the masonry structure which is the origin of the building technique and the skin structure which I have been trying on my projects. And the second was to innovate something that equips structure, function and heat environment altogether.A steel box is designed with the Japanese original module and it sizes 450mm×900mm. The Boxes are piled up with openings that become windows. Considering the heating environment inside, the depth of a steel box was decided as 300mm that serves as brise-soleil. The given depth blocks out the summer sun light and pulls in the winter sun into the house. In addition, a heat resistance material, a special ceramic-infused coating which we have applied for the past Penguin House project, is put on the steel plate. This also helps to solve the heating problem.

House H in Tokyo, Japan by Sou Fujimoto Architects

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Article source: Sou Fujimoto ArchitectsHouse

A dwelling for a family of three located in a residential district in Tokyo.

To live in a multi-storey dwelling in a dense metropolis like Tokyo is somehow similar to living in a large tree. Within a large tree, there exists few large branches, of which endows numerous qualities; -pleasant places to sit, sleep, and present places for discourse. While these branches are individual places under protection, they are simultaneously equipped with mutual relationships that allow one to sense the presence of one another across each branch.  A network of relationships interwoven across many places throughout the branches. A proposal for a landscape where the duality of opposites; individuality and holistic co-exist through relationship.
