Plastic Moon in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda 

For this project a moulding form coins the shape of space. According to this positive form, every space in the building alongside with its scenery is being created as the negative counterpart to it. Moulding forms are usually being filled with liquid metal in order to shape a certain kind of part or product.

Alice in Tokyo, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

The plot for ALICE is an extremely long rectangle, 3.8 m wide and 22 m deep. It is situated in the middle of a bustling shopping district that would seem completely unsatisfactory for a personal home. The client requested a “resort” here. With a pool, lush trees, and a blue sky above. 
In order to conceptualize this “resort”, I decided to use two contradicting methods at the same time, to “sever” the architecture from the commotion of the surroundings, and to boldly “connect” it thereto.

Mush room in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

The part of “Mash/Room” is lucid in its abstraction of the architecture – two pairs of slightly displaced L-blocks, each pair set perpendicular to the other, and one set protectively guarding the other.
 Transposed to real life, incorporeal digital renderings materialise in the form of substantive concrete L-shaped structures, exponentially magnifying and making tangible the sense of space that initially could only be imagined.

Knockout the moonlight in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

A metaphor used in philosophy is “Mobius’s ring”. This involves taking a piece of tape which is black on one side and white on the other, and twisting the tape halfway and connecting the ends, to form a loop where the side that was black imperceptibly connects to the white side. The idea is to twist the thought that the front is normally black and the back is white, to create a metaphor for connecting and inverting the inside and outside.

Long Tall House in Tokyo, Japan by SPACESPACE

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: SPACESPACE

The site is located in a typical Japanese crowded residential area, just middle between two stations near to Shibuya. The house of a young married couple is on a strip of land subdivided for sale (about 4m*16m). It adjoins two paths at north and south sides, and locates on a very old retaining wall which runs along the north path and forms 3.5m height cliff. The path were too narrow to comply the current regulations, so we needed removing a part of the wall so that it could be widened.

Aesop Shibuya in Tokyo, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

For Australian skin care brand Aesop, we planned the interior and exterior of the new store on Meiji Street in Shibuya. The store is located on the first floor of a three-storey building situated between two taller buildings; the space is long and slender – 2.6m in width, 7.8m in depth and 3.9m in maximum height. We aimed to work with these proportions to provide a welcoming and intimate space for communication with customers.
