House for green, breeze and light in Ota city, Tokyo by Yaita and Associates

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Article source: Yaita and Associates

This residence is in the residential area called Denenchofu which is located about 20 km to the west of the center of Tokyo. This area was developed about 90 years ago, based on the ideas of Eiichi Shibuzawa–to build a garden city on the hill ever blessed with gentle breezes and abundant vegetation.  To maintain the philosophy of this environmental formation, rules for the conservation of green, stricter than those of the other residential areas of Tokyo, were stipulated, such as requiring houses to be set back 2m from the roads. These rules have continued to be observed to this day.

HOUSE-K in Tokyo, Japan by K2YT

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Article source: K2YT

The site is situated amidst the densely packed residential area in Tokyo. Whilst being on a south west corner of the block having frontages to two streets, the elevated railway on the north posed issues of noise and vibration. The corner location offered opportunities for capturing light and air, but the contradiction was that doing so will call for mitigation of noise.

Sarugaku in Daikanyama, Tokyo by akihisa hirata ,yoshihiko yoshihara

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Akihisa hirata ,Yoshihiko yoshihara

This is a set of the commercial tenant buildings in Daikanyama, Tokyo.
From legal condition it was demanded to build several small volumes in narrow site, and we decided to make several volumes that seemed to be mountains. Thereby valley-shaped space between mountains is formed, where people and displayed things will overflow. Light and wind are taken enough by valley-shaped space, and each shop can enlarge itself on the mountain shaped volumes.
