A site is a quiet residential street of Tokyo.
A kitchen, a toilet, and a stair are summarized to a center core, and the free plan with excursion nature is developed.
A basic concrete floor, the wall of plywood for structure with oil paint, stairs, etc. are taking out a feeling of a material.

It takes 40 minutes by ferry from the nearest island with an airport to reach Iriomote-Island, which is a part of Okinawa in the south of Japan. With an area of over 90% covered by subtropical virgin forest, the entire island is designated as a national park. The client had lived on Iriomote- Island for 14 years. Now he wanted to build his own house.While sitting snug against a hill, at the front of the house a luxorious vision opens up overlooking the farmlands that spread around the site.

The site is located at the very end of the residential section developed in the 1970s in Nara, Japan. There are homogeneous prefabricated houses in one side, and ancient Japanese-styled houses and rich nature spread in another side. It is the typical site of Nara. We planned a new residence for young husband and wife.

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.

An architecture which can transform own spaces flexibly will apply to any requirement.

A house as a sreet
A small house built on a narrow site. The width of the site is 5m, just the same as the street in front, and the house is even narrowed down into 3mwidth tubular space.This tubular space separates into two branches,one protrudes straight in the air to create a void underneath for the parking,one slightly shifts down to form an entrance space.This 22m long entrance space is not a closed corridor but almost like a open street, both sides are connected to the environments, even has a branch and a forked point, which leads you to the other side of the site, a little garden and a green road with a stream. This “street” introduces the sense of urban scales into this small house.

“GINAN “, whole site including a building is like a Japanese garden. A client requested me to relocate garden stones and trees from a garden of the house which he used to live. This site is long and narrow. I left half site on the road as a “garden” for future for their children.

This members’ bar lounge targets to the executives who are keen in spending stylish city nights. It goes without saying that you will feel something special and extraordinary for those who want to become a member and who are willing to use this bar. What’s more, once you start using here, usability and comfort will play a great significance to the operation form. You might find these two aspects mentioned above quite odd, and to give just the right touch, was our challenge.
