OVULE in Tokyo, Japan by TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS 

This is a small house in a residential area in Bunkyo-ku Tokyo. We set large windows on the open south side and set a green screen as south facade by making planter boxes on each floor. The ceiling at the window is mirror finished, it functions as a device that green captures inside the room. The eaves were deeply attached to each floor, the void was divided by the planters. Keeping an appropriate distance with neighbors, we just imagined a meditation space that can live together with GREEN plants in small streets. We thought here is not ‘modest living’ of ‘small dwell’ but a ‘BIG LIFE’ of ‘SMALL DWELL’.

Beam House in Tokyo, Japan by HUGO KOHNO ARCHITECT ASSOCIATES

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: HUGO KOHNO ARCHITECT ASSOCIATES

Located on a lot with a narrow frontage, this building houses a gallery on the first floor and a residence on the second and third floors. The client requested that the gallery have a glass facade to allow good visibility from the street and be a single open space to ensure flexibility and allow for future changes in use. They also requested a separate entrance to the second-floor residential area, and a design that required no structural walls on the first floor, such as a Rahmen structure.

HOUSE H-The house with plants in Katsushika City, Tokyo by KAMAKURA STUDIO

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Article source: KAMAKURA STUDIO

The house before rebuilding had stayed in the shadow because the location that had been surrounded by many buildings had been bad.

That’s why the room hadn’t got much sunlight, and the potted plants that had been outside had been losing their energy in the dimly-lit place.

So we started designing the best places for plants with the owner who loves plants.

Article source: id inc. 

It is a shared office for creators co-organized by Japanese design office id inc. and photo and video company bird and insect Ltd. It is consist of office, library, workroom, conference room, and photo studio. As a place to create various works, space like a blank sheet without a strong concept was created. Walls that stand like drawing extension lines to the old building before its renovation partition space. The architectural structure has several openings that look continuous makes visitors feel more depth. It is a place to demonstrate how a new office for creators should be structured. The beauty of this office is that a total proposal from product planning, production, to final display can be consistently made. The pure white space has a gallery-like atmosphere so that it also functions as a place for exhibition at any time.

HULIC & New SHIBUYA in Tokyo, Japan by ETHNOS

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Article source: ETHNOS

This project is on display at the Center-gai, located at the intersection of Inokashira-street and the Yumeji-street. The surroundings bristle with commercial buildings holding signboards. Our proposal is to visualize every floor as a volume in which through its full glazing façade, pedestrians can per-ceive the inner-life from the street. In this way, they recognize the building not from the signage but from the volume of the building. We produce diversity from maximizing the rental spaces through commanding the sky factor. External shaft equipment allows 100% rentable floor area ratio to pre-serve economic efficiency, and we developed a sash less, insulated glazing, fire preventing, steel curtain wall on the surface to mimic the appearance of glass in each floor as layers.

OKOMEYA in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka / Schemata Architects

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Article source: Jo Nagasaka / Schemata Architects

This rice shop is located on a modest-sized shopping street spanning 300 meters between the main shopping area and Togoshi Koen station.
The street used to prosper with an array of small individual shops, but it has declined substantially and many shops had been closed down. As a consequence, the street is increasingly filled with closed shutters. If no measure is taken against the declining condition, it would eventually become a so-called “shutter street” and the shopping street would disappear.
A local team, Owan Ltd., is striving to reactivate the shopping street. They operate MR. COFFEE, a roastery/coffee shop, and PEDERA BRANKA, a café, on the same street.

SLIDE in Tokyo, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates Co., Ltd

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates Co., Ltd 

This small house in a residential district in eastern Tokyo is home to a couple and their young children. The dark grey galvalume cladding blends gently into the surrounding environment, as if it has been there for many years. Because the lot sits across the street from an elementary school, the clients requested a design that ensured privacy yet was as open as possible.

100banch in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Panasonic Corporation, 100 BANCH was established as an innovative work platform where Panasonic works in collaboration with future generations to create new values that will help shaping the next 100 years. The first floor is a cafe space “KITCHEN” organized and run by Cafe Company; the second floor is a work space “GARAGE” for project members who are concurrently developing multiple projects; the third floor is a collaborative space “LOFT” for creation of new values for the next 100 years. Schemata Architects was responsible for the overall exterior design and interior design of the second and third floors. “GARAGE” on the second floor has a very low ceiling height of 2015 mm, but we decided to make the best use of the low, hand-reachable ceiling to bring out the unique potential of the space that would be used as the creative platform intended to imagine the next 100 years. We designed a ceiling-mounted lighting and power supply socket using the “duplex lamp socket”, which is an iconic product invented by Konosuke Matsushita, the founder of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. (the former company name of Panasonic), and installed the sockets at 750-mm intervals on the ceiling; they can be directly and easily attached/detached by hand so that users can arrange the work space flexibly on their own and use light and power at any location. In order to extend such freedom of movement vertically as well as horizontally, automatic height adjustable tables are adopted, allowing people to stand and sit freely and consequently creating a highly flexible expandable work place where they can work or hold meetings anywhere.
