Jyubako in Tokyo, Japan by KENGO KUMA AND ASSOCIATES

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: KENGO KUMA AND ASSOCIATES

Jyubako is a trailer house (mobile home) developed and produced by KKAA and snow peak, a Japanese manufacturer for outdoor goods. For the designing of a trailer house, there are regulatory requirements to be cleared in its size and weight, so to make the living place spacious, we set the door that can be kept open.

It is a proposal for another nomadic lifestyle.

Oyamadai House in Tokyo, Japan by frontofficetokyo

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Article source: frontofficetokyo

With a flag shaped site, bound on every side by close neighbors, the understandable instinct might be to step away from the city, retreat behind walls where privacy is better assured. The family that purchased the site saw instead a chance to be as open as possible, using the small degree of isolation as an opportunity to connect to the metropolis from a slight remove. Although the neighbors are close, the tendency in Tokyo is to reject the city and build closed walls, ironically allowing the family to take the opposite stance and open their home without loss of privacy. In this way the site is not unlike a clearing in the midst of a forest.

Kanda Terrace in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: Key Operation Inc. 

Located in a central Tokyo neighborhood with many low and mid-rise office buildings, this rental building for restaurants stands on a long, narrow lot, surrounded on three sides by streets.

Key considerations when designing a building of this type are how to create a group identity for the tenants and how to relate the units to the cityscape.

Because of its city-center location, this mid-rise building needed to be commercially efficient, occupying the entire permissible floor area ratio and filling that space with restaurant tenants on every floor.

The project took place in Kichijoji (one of Tokyo’s suburban towns)’s Harmonica Yokochi, a wondrous bystreet that still retains the atmosphere of black-market stalls during the post-World War II period. We designed the interior for a small Yakitori bar that sits on the edge of the street.

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’.

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.
