Villa SSK in Chiba, Japan by Takeshi Hirobe Architects

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Article source: Takeshi Hirobe Architects 

This architecture is intended to link the beautiful ocean spreading in front and the rocky mountain behind. Requests from the client are living-dining room with kitchen, bathroom with the ocean view, guest room and spare room that can be used as garage. Courtyard is provided, being surrounded by the main quarter, guest room and spare room. It has multiple functions; it serves as a reflecting pool when filled with water; is used as a dog yard; and also becomes exterior living room extended from the interior. It creates an appropriate distance between the main quarter and spare room, yet at the same time maintains the visual axis from the ocean to the mountain while blocking the view from the street. The structure that links the ocean and the mountain is supported by space truss-arch structure and LVL panel wall structure. Here tunnel-like succession of the wooden frames is realized, without installing support walls in the direction perpendicular to the main axis.

Interior Renovation in Japan by frontofficetokyo

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Article source: frontofficetokyo

First built in the 1970’s the apartment was cramped by contemporary standards, even for Tokyo, with low ceilings and short and narrow rooms. After stripping the space down to a single room, the design takes a hint from the overlapping spaces in the city and is composed from three simple shapes. A grey wood box houses the laundry, a concrete box contains the bath and sink, while an S shaped partition forms a closet and space for the fridge. The updated space is simple but comfortable and connects to the city perfectly.

Miyahata Jomon Museum in Fukushima, Japan by Furuichi and Associates

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Article source: Furuichi and Associates 

A significant period in early Japanese history, the Jomon Period was around the 10th Century BC. In this period, people lived a hunter gatherer life in the northeast of Japan, and late Jomon ruins have been excavated in Miyahata, Fukushima Prefecture. There have been many significant finds and studies related to the Jomon people over the past 20 years. To accommodate the research, investigation, exhibition and educational needs of these studies, a museum became necessary. The site is facing some significant Jomon ruins. The context is a beautiful natural landscape. The design has an impressive roof structure with concrete walls and timber roof construction. The structures are expressed in the major internal spaces. In the beginning, the Jomos people lived in caves called grotta. Later the Jamon people came out of caves and made villages of circular-plan houses, still keeping and following the image of caves. To the entrance hall, a covered wooden roof using the imagery of caves was proposed and designed. The structure combines wood panels and wooden beams.

This is a remodelling project of a Kyomachi-ya, a traditional Kyoto house, constructed over 80 years ago.

At first, it was a Kyomachi-ya that has been painted multiple times due to refurbishments in the last 80 years. Firtstly, for returning it to the original form, the paints were scraped off.
