M-House in Nagoya, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: Akinori+Maki Yoshimura

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.

Majima Clinic in Nagoya, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

Reinterpretation of typical elements of wooden architecture ; folded space.

We tried to reinterpret the traditional appearance of wooden architecture, pitched roof and big canopy, under the concept of “folding” referred to “ORIGAMI”- a traditional Japanese paper work.

The roof, wall and canopy- the outer elements of architecture- are integrated and considered as a sheet of paper, split off and folded to each direction like “ORIGAMI”. The gesture of “ORIGAMI” brings the gaps and openings to the space underneath, generates the light, flow lines and the functions. The folded skin obscures the architectural articulations and boundaries, integrates the separated functions into one volume. Openness and closeness seamlessly continues, visitors would find themselves in the entirety and separation at the same time, ambiguous space.

Membrene in Stratum in Nagoya, Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

“Membrane in Stratum” is an installation that wraps around the interior space. The concept of human activity is emphasised by the graduation of translucency through the membrane. The membrane regulates depth and boundaries. We can divide the room in many ways by the penetration, reflectance and absorption of light. We can change the function of the room at our will. A dynamic space is born from the shadows that reflect of the membrane surface and vibrantly decorate the room.

Hansha Reflection House in Nagoya, Japan by Studio Sklim

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Article source: Studio Sklim

Situated at the entrance of Misakimizube Koen, one of the picturesque parks fronting a lake and flanked by Sakura trees, the house was conceived to be an object with the environment.The programmatic zones of Public, Service and Private spatially organised the house into 3 distinct zones with further punctuation of the main massing with the Landscape element; providing spaces for the courtyard and roof deck. This base form was further chiseled with structure, daylight/ventilation and viewpoint concerns.

Little One-room House with a Curve in Nagoya, Japan by Studio Velocity

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Little shop of 41㎡ in Nagoya city. The site has an elongated shape with a width of about 9m and a depth of 20m. While the front road is relatively wide, with a sidewalk, one might get a feeling of oppression due to the small size of the site surrounded as it by shops and houses of from 2 to 3 stories.
