The planning areas is a green hill with good views. There is next to the “Italian mountain garden”. However, there is a large housing complex on the south side.

It shut out the external eye, light and wind can achieve. The Void is provided on each floor. And there is provided a lot of planting, will be filled with greenery. This building looks like a planter. The concrete exterior walls generate the lye by plywood. It has deliberately transferred.

Memphiskyodai in Tokyo, Japan by 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.
