The Sony Corporation’s building in Osaki, Japan by Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Article source: Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Concept & Objectives

This project was inspired by the paradoxical idea of improving the environment through the presence of large-scale architecture. The Project is an office building for Sony’s R&D department, which takes the form of a thin vertical plate to ensure good views. More importantly, the form minimizes the heat island effect by positioning its narrow sides against prevailing winds, thus allowing the breeze to flow in from Tokyo Bay without hindrance. The building was then conceived as a massive cooling devise that performs in much the same way as a natural forest.

This small house is located on the long and narrow site in Kyoto, the old capital of Japan. We put two V shaped grooves at north-east and south-west boundary point-symmetrically and all windows are set in these grooves which run vertically on each side of this house.

House of ISM in Chiba, Japan by International Royal Architecture (I.R.A)

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: International Royal Architecture (I.R.A)

It is the area developed on a large scale as resort property of a bubble period near by from the sea. Most of other sites are untouched and the owner of land and right relocation of a site boundary or a road are not certain. This cottage for a client who likes fishing stands to a site like a vast weeds place.

Neither the sea nor a mountain nor beautiful green can necessarily be seen from here. The impressive house that has the form of the white arrow was built to the site without an important context.

TSR Building in Tokyo, Japan by Jun’ichi Ito Architect & Associates

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Article source: Jun’ichi Ito Architect & Associates

TSR Building Architectural Main Concept

Prologue
The clients are a family (a father and a son) who are psychiatrists and have been running a mental health clinic in Minato ward in central Tokyo for fifty years. Although the clinic has a long history housed in its current old wooden building, it became necessary for it to relocate due to a road schedule based on an urban plan formulated immediately after the Japanese defeat in World War II. In accordance with the relocation, the family decided to purchase an old building a five-minute walk from the clinic and build a new building on the site in order to reopen the clinic there. The beginning of this project was to the dismantling of the old building.

Sunset Villa in Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Teruki Takayoshi

Sites that were originally like this would have normally been given up on. The TT Architects approach to design utilises these negative elements, converting them into positive ones.
The client came to us wishing for the extension situated on the east-side of the block and adjoining the pre-existing main building be removed, and that a building of a similar scale be built in its place.
