House in Musashisakai in Tokyo, Japan by upsetters architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: upsetters architects

This is a house for a single family, which consists of a couple and their daughter, in a suburb of Tokyo.

This project attempts to allow the family to flexibly change their way of living in one house as the daughter grows older.  Generally speaking, the change of the relationship between parents and their children often seems to be caused by the children’s growth as the parents rarely change their way of life once they established it.  Especially in Japan, it is very obvious.

HA tower in Tokyo, Japan by Frontoffice + François Blanciak Architect

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Article source: Frontoffice + François Blanciak Architect

After decades of government-backed decentralization urban life is again being promoted in Tokyo, and residential mid-rise and high-rise towers have as a consequence begun to populate the city in large numbers. Collectively the additions form a new normal urban typology that embraces height but unexpectedly denies the surrounding urban landscape in favor of an interior life. Not surprisingly a side effect of this approach is the lack of livable outdoor space in the city center. Balconies are common but purely technical, included primarily as outdoor service zones to be filled with mechanical equipment and the accessories of the emergency escape system. Even the most modest tables and chairs fight for space. For those who wish to have some degree of open outdoor space there is little choice but to leave the city center and settle into a family home in the suburbs.

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Article source: Keiji Ashizawa Design

Typical Tokyo urban condition of closely built surrounding.  The 4 storey house resolves privacy and light by the idea of 2 cascading courtyards, which spills gradual light into the innermost volume of the house. Due to the differing light intensity from the 2 courtyards, each space also differs in character and function.

The house the client was born and raised. Now, only his parents live there. There is a space where contiguous with the house. We did our architectural planning for this newly married client couple by using the space. The main building the parents live is old and heavy undressed concrete. The style has become a familiar nowadays, but that must have attracted a great deal of attention at that time.
