Timber structure archery hall and boxing club in Tokyo, Japan by FT Architects

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: FT Architects

The project consists of two buildings, an archery hall and a boxing club, standing a few hundred meters apart on the grounds of Kogakuin University in west Tokyo.

The formal rituals of Kyudo (Japanese archery) and the very physical nature of boxing may appear worlds apart. However, surprisingly, the two built facilities share a number of commonalities.

ALLEY house in Sumida ward, Tokyo by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

A client for a house, of which I designed and supervised eight years ago, got married and bought a small lot near Tokyo Skytree, which is located in a place with a downtown atmosphere. Due to difficulty of construction within the small narrow site at the end of a narrow path, a wooden construction was chosen. Soft, dark brown Galvanized steel exterior walls create a Japanese impression, and the house naturally blends into the old neighborhood.

By using glass walls on the street side, indoor views include the surrounding environment.

Private house + apartments for rent in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo by Atelier Tekuto

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

This architecture consists of a second house with garage and two studio-type apartment units for rent. Our client asked me to design architecture similar to “Reflection of Mineral” that we completed in 2006. Therefore basic concepts of ‘Mineral’ are taken into consideration. And in order to further evolve from our previous design we focus on the following three issues: (1) Form should be carefully considered in order to protect white walls from dirt from rainwater. (2) Design and detailing of large skylight (3) Selection of materials to minimize cost.

Dear Ginza bldg in Tokyo, Japan by amano design office

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: amano design office

The client is a developer company. It purchased a long-sought after lot in Ginza, and planned to build a commercial  office building.

The building site is on the Ginza 1-chome Gaslight Street, which is one street behind the Ginza Central Street.

It is on the back side of the Mizuho Bank and Pola Ginza buildings on the Central Street. The atmosphere is quite different from the gorgeous Central Street, and the site is on an empty street which is often seen behind the street with large-sized buildings.
Attracting as many people as possible into such a street is our task. The client desired the building to be a gorgeous existence.
