KBJ share space in Kokubunji, Tokyo, Japan by I.R.A./International Royal Architecture

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Article source: I.R.A./International Royal Architecture

We report that our new project “KBJ” has completed.

We renovated a fourth floor of the building near Kokubunji station as a share space.

Because of the good equipment, rather than building everything from nothing, our challenge was to produce diversity of rooms with less operations.

KKZ house in Tokyo, Japan
 by I.R.A./ International Royal Architecture

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: I.R.A./ International Royal Architecture

A two-floor residence with a basement in the cozy town of Setagaya-ku,Tokyo.

It has a half-basement free space which can be a child room in the future, the living, the kitchen, and the dining room in the middle floor, and the private space in the second floor. In spite of its restricted premise, it makes the residence so spacious by connecting these floors with voids which run through the entrance hall and above the kitchen, respectively. Furthermore, the integrated 180mm-thick LVL beams make 6m of a column-less second floor slab possible.

This is the salon and the showroom by Maruwakaya – the company which produces “monozukuri” (which means a craftsmanship or art of design and manufacturing) that links traditional crafts to Contemporary art.

The counter made from Japanese cedar is employed as the center of the room; also, we designed the room by applying only the lintels, the sills, and the pillars.

Scandinavian middle in Tokyo, Japan by Kichi Architectural Design

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Article source: Kichi Architectural Design

This residence, consisting of a design office and a master bedroom, is the result of renovating a barn which used to store farming equipment, a barn located in the rural area about an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The barn with the height of 4 m. was transformed into a loft which had two levels–the first for the meeting room and the second for the office. The lattice windows welcome the trees of the forest into the building, ushering in tranquility. The old doors of the barn have been given a new life to provide an accent for the space.

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: Apollo architects & associates

This is a house for a single person, built in a quiet residential area in Kagurazaka, Tokyo. The exterior walls use dark brown Galvalume steel in a length-wise, lateral direction, in order to blend into the atmosphere of fleshpots surrounded with black board fences. Galvanized steel sheets are used for exterior walls next to the entrance and around the garage. By using a combination of different steel sheets, a playful contrast is created.

The House for Seven People

The original house was built 37 years ago with a mixed structure; steel on the ground floor and timber on the first floor. Since its original construction in 1977, the site around the house has dramatically changed. The two-story house is now surrounded by 7-9 story buildings in an area known as the “Urban Village“, which lies between Yamate-Dori and Megro River – a three minute walk from Fudomae Metro Station in Tokyo.
