Memphiskyodai in Tokyo, Japan by Kosuke Kajikawa

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Article source: Kosuke Kajikawa

It is a bar located in a shopping district in Shimokitazawa. Looking at the bare dismantled concrete space, we decided to carefully minimize what we added to the space. For the interior design of the store, materials and colors were purposefully selected to be simple and minimalist. We balanced with scrupulous care what to remodel and what to leave. We thought an unostentatious design could produce a space that would become a background of the visitor,the furniture and music by making the most of the virtue the space had originally had.

Wind-dyed House in Kanagawa, Japan by Kazuhiko Kishimoto / acaa

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Article source:  Kazuhiko Kishimoto / acaa

A residential building located halfway up a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Thick clumps of trees that grow along the slope of the land surrounding the house cast a series of organic silhouettes that make the slope seem to come alive. We decided that the appropriate form to build would be as low-lying as possible, while also allowing the architecture to become embedded in the surrounding landscape according to the contours of the terrain. This would allow us to minimize the impact of the building on its environment. The design of the walls plays an important role in creating the overall sense of presence that a building projects. As such, we also tried to prevent the walls of this house from becoming surfaces that would obstruct or impede movement and sight. Glass and screens along the enclosed perimeter of the house gives the second floor of this residence a certain transparency. Slender, deep-set eaves cast deep shadows on the facade of the building, softening the impact of the building’s physical presence in relation to its environment.

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.
