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.

Ise O in Mie, Japan by Chikara Ohno / sinato

A new house built on the misshapen site for a family of four.  The site faces the urban scale such as parking area and public pool.  So it was better to keep enough distance from them, but the house open to the outside was required.  We placed 3 rectangles along the site, 3 quadrangles between the rectangles and 1 triangle at the center on a plan.  3 rectangles are the mass for the rooms such as living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc.  3 quadrangles are the courtyards.

An organic restaurant located on Jiyu Street, which is a short walk from Komazawa Park, one of the biggest parks in Tokyo.
-The restaurant is on the ground floor (half-underground) of a three-story apartment building (reinforced concrete).
Since it is located in a residential area, there are not so many people on the street.
But on the weekend, there are many people walking who go to Komazawa Park for a picnic, especially in good seasons.
– It has three functions such as a takeout, an organic food shop and a restaurant.
– The most distinctive feature of the premises lies in its floor level, which is 1.61m below the ground level of entrance. And the height of the premises is 4.39m.

RoomRoom  (House for hearing Handicapped persons)

This is a house where deaf parents and two children are living.

The two sides of the premises are facing narrow roads in an overcrowded residential area in Itabashi ward, Tokyo. The small main building built five years ago became so narrow for dwellers for three generations that they bought a piece of land neighber to their house to build an annex.

Daylight House in Kanagawa, Japan by Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Takeshi Hosaka Architects

This is a house in which residents live under natural lighting from the sky. The site is five minutes walk from the railway station, and it is surrounded by a mixture of detached dwellings and 10-floor condominiums and office buildings. In this location nested in a valley between buildings, the light streaming down from the sky above felt precious. A couple with two children planned to build their home in this spot.

Lucky Drops in Tokyo, Japan by Atelier Tekuto

Among the increasing number of houses planned on small plots of land, this is out of the ordinary in shade and size, A 20-minute train ride from downtown Tokyo, 15-minuite walk from the station. It is a long, narrow trapezoid with a lower base of 3.2m as the frontage, height of 29.3m as the depth, and upper base of 0.7m at the very end of the site. Moreover, there is a local ordinance requiring a 0.5-meter set-back of external walls from the adjacent land. Conditions are extremely tough. From the moment I had looked through the site’s situation, I have organized a collaboration system consisting of the client, design, structure, construction and maker, then started off planning.

Magritte’s in Tokyo, Japan by Makoto Yoshida

Magritte’s – Like Magritte’s Paintings

Magritte’s is situated in the middle of Tokyo, on a tiny 45.61 m2 of plot of land. The width of front road restricted the size of construction machinery. The conditions made it extremely difficult to build the residence. The client was a married couple in their thirties, and their simple request was the use of concrete for every part of the house including floor, wall, tables etc. They didn’t even care for storage space to satisfy this request.

The concept of the house was derived from the client’s request of ‘living in the garage’.  The garage is designed as a courtyard from the security reason, and living spaces are located around it for good daylight. The living room opens out into a couryard where bikes can be stored.  Wood and steel are used for finish, and unify overall design.

Kaminoge House in Tokyo, Japan by Naoya Kawabe Architect & Associates

A moderate distance is kept outside by assuming the tenement house form. I thought that an independent approach to each unit is connected at the outside environment with planting and the chance to touch. In addition, the tenement house was not made overbearing an one volume. We were made in the south-north through by using “Division” and “Gap”. It is tried to take the outside environment indoors by apply the daylight and ventilation from the window opened to the best position.
