Skyhole in Shiga, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd 

The building is an atelier and residence for a couple of painter and a designer. It is a  space to spend their whole day with their only son and will be used to regularly exhibit works as a gallery  and host a party. Therefore, the atelier and the residence will be used multi-dimensionally by shifting boundaries depending on usages. In order to house various activities, extra air volume and spatial intonation  were sought. By distorting the inside of one big volume, we searched for a vibrating space that responds to the weight of activities.

“House in hieidaira” in Shiga, Japan by Tato architects

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Tato architects

Located in a rural part of Japan on the flank of Mount Hiei north of Kyoto, this house was designed for an artist who required a studio, living space as well as to accommodate his parents. The house has been designed as a collection of three independent but related structures that reference the local vernacular of predominantly small pitched roof cottages. It was thought that to try to accommodate all of the required programmatical functions in one structure would result in a too large building. Also there were concerns from the planning authority that activities in the studio may result in disturbance to neighbouring residents.

Kusatsu house in Shiga, Japan by ALTS Design Office

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Article source: ALTS Design Office

We prepared this project for “Hatazaochi”, that means a lot whose figure is just like flag and the pole. This lot is surrounded by a condominium building and houses. There is a parking lot of a condominium building on the south side of the lot. But a house with a southern exposure is not good because the client wants to secure the privacy.
