This beauty parlor stands in the Omote-sando area of Tokyo, which represents one of the trend setting centers for this metropolis.  The building has three roof openings which pours light into the interior and, which, by slit-like openings in the floor is led into the floors below, reaching the ground floor, which in turn can be seen from the street level through its large glass windows.  Thereby, expressing the image of a “vessel of light.”

House with Futokoro in Koganei, Japan by Mizuishi Architects Atelier (designed using Vectorworks)

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Article source: Mizuishi Architects Atelier

This house was planned in the deepest part of a site divided into three. Because it was expected that next buildings approach in the east and west, I aimed at the house which wind and looking could pass in the north and south direction. Residents are husband and wife, two little girls, two dogs, three cats.They had many personal things, but when I saw the overflow condition of their things,I thought It is good exactly for them just like “they are not worry,even if they do not tidy up” rather than they keep a thing in storage exactly.

Improvement work of one of the hotel’s floors (including 4 rooms).

The hotel is conveniently located, which is just 10 minutes walk from Shinjuku Station and on the side of Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.  Its bilingual staff serves the overseas visitors very well.

To invite more customers from other countries, an universal room was required.  The other three rooms were needed to be capable of accommodating much more people per room to meet the demands of families and youth.

Mederu – Auto Repair Shop in Nigata, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Article source: Mederu – Auto Repair Shop

It locates in the suburb of Nigata City as one of the big cities in Japan. The factory is used by the factory staff and the users who like to repair and remodel car by oneself. In the suburb of Nigata City, many suburbian architectures appear. The majority is classified in ‘the commercial establishment with strong color and fanciful form’ and ‘the monotonous offices and warehouses which have no interest of design and is finished with grey or beige color’. We intended to design a new suburbian architecture that reflects the character of the suburb but was neither involved in the fancifulness competition nor was different from the monotonous office.

Article source: Mizuishi Architect Atelier

This is a very small house built on the triangle site where the river and the road were crossed and made to the acute angle.For the dead-end road, it became a plan in various regulations for obtaining special permission. Residents are husband and wife and a little girl. Although it was a novel site of a limited area, since a river was faced through a bank and a promenade, I would like to design various relations with the river. The building is the form that cut an acute angle part on a triangle plan derived from the site.Furthermore,it got the maximum volume of hip roof of three planes in regulation of setback-line.

Ordinary House in Shiga, Japan by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

This is a house which is built in new residential area. The area has no special character and most of the houses are built by house builders. When I face to a situation like this, whether I like it or not, I am made to think about it. My question is… “Do most of people want to have nothing special, just an ordinary house in an ordinary land? My answer is in this house. As an architect this is my solution to a social situation like this. Externally the house appears as a simple volume with prefabricated windows.
