Toge in Tokyo, Japan by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Toge (Japanese for thorn) is a modular product. Each “thorn” gives the viewer the impression of a sharp and stiff object, but these modules can in fact be freely combined to create a soft, pliable and standalone space. At DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2011, Emmanuelle arranged five hundred of these Toge modules in 15 different colors to form a wedding dress. This conceptual piece was an exercise in contradictory impressions and sensations – solid and stiff but soft and pliable, menacing yet gentle.

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Article source: BAKOKO Architects

Designing he Tokyo office of multinational recruitment specialists CDS was an opportunity to renew and maximize the value of their existing two-story premises. After appraising a full range of space use options, BAKOKO transformed the second floor into an efficient and modern workplace with a sleek and attractive facility for meetings and interviews below. The project was phased across the various floors of the building to mitigate disruption to the company’s day-to-day operations.

Luminous in Tokyo, Japan by Jun Sakaguchi Architect

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Article source: Jun Sakaguchi Architect

Jun Sakaguchi as a practice director of PTW Architects won a design competition for this small commercial block in Tokyo in 2006. Crowned with a penthouse rising above the 31m height limit but within the set-back line, it glows like finely cut jewellery. Most surrounding buildings are 31m high, so the penthouse enjoys open views from the timber deck terrace to the Tokyo Station area and further up to the Shinjuku district.

Takeo Kikuchi Store in Shibuya, Tokyo by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

When we were commissioned to design this store, it was a year after the Great Tohoku Earthquake. From experiencing such great disaster we realized the importance of communication in communities, and began to question the present situation of retail stores that are typically glass-clad buildings with no operable windows, where no interaction between street and store would happen.

Ogikubo House in Tokyo, Japan by MDS Architect

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Article source: MDS Architect

Given Tokyo’s high land prices and laws that regulate construction on small sites, most clients wish to make the most of the space available to them. It is no exaggeration to say that architects make their own rules and solve the conundrums that arise with clients as if solving a puzzle.

Hue Plus in Tokyo, Japan by Schemata Architects

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Schemata Architects

The alternative space Hue plus is a series of facilities seamlessly integrated into the photo studio, where the visual expression of ‘eating’ is the particular subject of photographic exploration. Unlike an ordinary photo studio that is a closed box to be used merely as a shooting equipment, Hue plus is an office space, a cafe, a library and a kitchen that the users have control over, making them feel like staying longer for its own sake and enjoy the experience. Hue plus embraces its users by enabling them to change it as they feel fit. The relaxed atmosphere offers further possibilities of open and vibrant communications to stir up the users’ creative minds and fresh ideas about ‘eating’.

Breeze in Setagaya, Tokyo by ARTechnic architects

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: ARTechnic architects

A building that sits in mute repose, like an impassive signpost.

In seeking to realize such a building, which becomes part of the scenery around it, acting as part of the backdrop for passers-by, I felt that I needed to create an exterior that was distinct from the standard architectural lexicon.

The Creature Code in Tokyo, Japan by visiondivision

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Article source: visiondivision

Visiondivision was invited by the Japan Design Association and Designboom to produce a piece of architecture as a tribute to the eccentric 18th century painter Ito Jakuchu to be exhibited at the Tokyo Designers Week. In the beginning, the world was untainted nature; creatures could find water in the rivers and the lakes and find shelter in the woods, the grass and within the earth itself.
