R4 in Tokyo, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Florian Busch Architects 

The office, perhaps more than any other single building type of the present day, carries the true notions of the ideologies it is born in.

The R4 building addresses the question how scale and location inform an inner-city office type, and how exactly this contextual necessity might in fact perfectly reflect an environment of unforced, informal, perhaps even natural work efficiency.

WALL CLOUD in Tokyo, Japan by Ryuichi Sasaki / SASAKI ARCHITECTURE

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: Ryuichi Sasaki / SASAKI ARCHITECTURE

In recent years, various renovation projects have been attempted for a warehouse building, at which a legendary disco, “Juliana’s Tokyo”, once existed as a symbol of the Tokyo waterfront in the early 1990s. However, the attic part of the former discotheque on the second floor remained untouched for a long time, since it had a low ceiling height of 2.1m with only 1.7m under the beams, causing an oppressive feeling in the space.

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Article source: SASAKI ARCHITECTURE

A three-story office and retail complex in the Minami Aoyama area of Tokyo, Aoyama 346 is an interplay of multiple green triangles, which articulate the liminal spaces that intermediate between the interior and the exterior of the building. The design is also a response to the client’s request to create “an urban oasis” in the very heart of the city.

LHM kindergarten in Tokyo, Japan by Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

We designed a playful and exciting environment suitable for implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy, which focuses on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently. In doing so, we created a space in which seasonal changes can be experienced to the fullest by taking advantage of the glass windows facing a garden outside of the building to usher the great outdoors into the kindergarten.

A’ House in Tokyo, Japan by Wiel Arets, Satoru Umehara, Alex Kunnen

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: Wiel Arets, Satoru Umehara, Alex Kunnen

This compact private residence is nestled within the dense expanse of Tokyo, in Nishi-Azabu—a neighborhood characterized by narrow streets and traditional low-rise houses—which borders a park heavily visited during the spring, when the city’s cherry trees begin to bloom. Its 136-square-meter area consists of five horizontally divided spaces, each connected by a minuscule sculptural spiraling staircase that, given the footprint of the house, allows for loft-like spaces within its intimate confines. Oversized windows punctuate the house, each with two layers of glazing; one is transparent and one is of the same relief glass that wraps the façade. These oversized windows, with their dual layers of glazing, can be countlessly reconfigured, to regulate the interior flow of daylight.
