The internet age. This description is already obsolete. This age is passing quickly. The cloud computing world is now.
When wandering about in the cloud of information, things are not recognized clearly for what they are as each bit of information is not clearly defined in either its characteristic or identity. In the cloud computing world, we can know “IT” without actually touching anything real. If we type a keyword in any search engine, we get the information we want quickly. Sports car, British car, SUV, Jaguar, Land Rover, and so on. In the clouds, we have already discovered what we need to know about the goods we desire to purchase. But they are not yet physical, just virtual.

A stark white ship that sails in the middle of the bustling sea of colors.
The ship floating on the ocean suddenly appears in a shopping center. It evokes a feeling not of a resort area, but of an exotic corner of a town in some southern country. A feeling of a ship that comes across this area by chance.

If there is a form of the ideal to the shop, it may be to blend naturally as part of the town. It is that, rather than the sign-lit brilliantly, to continue to be as existence is connected to the people indeed. This is a renovation of the beauty salon during the ten years have passed since the time along with the town from opening. There was a figure of the shop owner exchanging greetings friends with people of the town who went through the shop front.

The name of this beauty salon was inspired by the owner’s passionate desire to turn it into a destination for “the last word in beauty”. Although the design was first completed about five years ago, the previous premises soon grew to feel a little cramped due to the rapidly expanding size of the team, which prompted the owner to move to a new and larger location.

A residence standing on a narrow corner lot in the southern part of Osaka. The client wished for a music room for his wife, who teaches gospel music, and a place where many friends could gather. Due to strict regulations because of the narrow width of the road, the site area was limited to 47 m2 but we tried to adjust the form as much as possible in configuring the interior.

We were commissioned to design the premises of a newly opened hair salon within a multi-tenant building located in Kyobashi, an old downtown area of Osaka. During our visit, we found the site to be a pleasant, well-lit space with many windows. The owner’s requirements were for “a styling space that brings sunlight into the interior while also hiding the exterior landscape from view.”

This house is planned for a family, husband, wife and their son. This small house has 8 levels of floor between entrance in the basement to the roof terrace in order to constitute every space not in concentrated way by big void but reciprocal relation of each space. This arrangement makes the notion of floor ambiguous and the continuity of space compatible with the hierarchy of space.
