Kawanishi Fam in Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: TTArchitects

Kawanishi Fam is situated in an industrial estate in close proximity to Kurashiki station. It was originally a warehouse used for roasting coffee, but we renovated it to create an open office space. We used the top floor of the four story warehouse due to the lasting impression of the characteristically shaped ceiling, which takes the same form as the original sloped roofing of the warehouse. This ceiling was the primary motivation for us in deciding to undertake the renovation in its current location.

35 White Street in New York by Andre Kikoski Architect

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: Andre Kikoski Architect 

This 1,900 SF loft in the heart of Tribeca was the painting studio of abstract expressionist Barnett Newman. Daylight from one hundred feet of windows fills the space. Our intention to preserve and enhance the essential character of this historic loft — while crafting within it a domestic space for a family with a young child – relied on a sense of openness and light. Operable panels of prismatic glass configure to create either dramatic openness or total privacy. Custom mahogany and bronze panels enhance the natural breadth and depth of the loft. A state-of-the-art cook’s kitchen and French limestone bathrooms make this space equally suited for dramatic entertaining and intimate daily living.

House in Mayuv in Kishiwada, Japan by Naoko Horibe

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Article source: Naoko Horibe

The client requested a design that would melt into the surrounding paddy landscape as well as provide a safe, stable living environment for generations to come.

The architect responded with a plan that incorporates multiple courtyards, ensuring the privacy necessary for an open lifestyle even if homes are built on surrounding lots in the future. If two generations with different schedules eventually share the home, the courtyards will also provide a comfortable degree of distance between the living spaces occupied by various members of the household.
