Artificial Topography in Kobe city, Japan by Ryumei Fujiki

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Article source: Ryumei Fujiki

Big Furniture Like a Cave. My idea is to hollow out the volume inside a container in order to build amorphous space like a cave. This “Artificial Topography” is made of only plastic material as same as my famous work “Aqua-scape”. About 1000 sheets of the soft plastic material of 10-mm thickness were cut down in contour line form, and were laminated like a stratum. This is not only art work but also one big furniture. Because all the portions are soft like a sofa, and person who enter into this space can relax by finding the place suitable for the form of its own body.

House in Hekida, Japan by fuse-atelier

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Article source: fuse-atelier

The house is located on the outskirts of Nakano City in northeastern Nagano Prefecture, in an area with abundant nature and a view of KitashigaKogen’sMt.Kosha to the east. Apple orchards and a cluster of houses that line the oldroad surrounded the site, while the elevated tracks of the Hokuriku Shinkansen scheduled to begin service in a couple of years, run north-south through nearby fields. The client – a couple in their 30s with one child – wanted a plan that made allowances for the adjacent main house and was aggressive in incorporating the view of Mt.Kosha.

Fujitsubo Beauty Parlor in Tokyo, Japan by Archivision Hirotani Studio

Article source: Archivision Hirotani Studio

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.

Hotel NUTS in Tokyo, Japan by Shuzo Okabe (upsetters architects)

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Article source: Shuzo Okabe (upsetters architects)

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.
