Snow Picnic in Nakano, Japan by Torafu

We performed the interior and exterior design for a gelato store that opened in a shopping street of Nakano, Tokyo, where customers can enjoy watching their order being prepared on the spot through a one of a kind performance whereby liquid nitrogen is mixed into a liquid concentrate of ice cream to produce gelato.

FRAME in Nakano, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

For FRAME, a low cost and short construction period were realized by substituting regular wooden frameworks for exposed concrete with FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic) that can be converted.

This house, with a studio for a husband who is a fashion photographer, is located in an area with flooding risks from torrential rains. Therefore, the entrance level is raised by 800 mm. The studio level on the first floor is lowered to maintain the ceiling height.

House in Hekida, Japan by fuse-atelier

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Article source: fuse-atelier

The house is located on the outskirts of Nakano City in northeastern Nagano Prefecture, in an area with abundant nature and a view of KitashigaKogen’sMt.Kosha to the east. Apple orchards and a cluster of houses that line the oldroad surrounded the site, while the elevated tracks of the Hokuriku Shinkansen scheduled to begin service in a couple of years, run north-south through nearby fields. The client – a couple in their 30s with one child – wanted a plan that made allowances for the adjacent main house and was aggressive in incorporating the view of Mt.Kosha.
