Skygarden House in Toronto, Canada by DUBBELDAM Inc.

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: DUBBELDAM Inc. 

Situated on a narrow lot in an older Toronto neighbourhood, the Skygarden House provides outdoor living spaces on multiple levels to address the owners’ desire for a better connection to the home’s natural surroundings. The owners used to spend their weekends at a home in the country, located next to a stream and surrounded by trees. For their new urban home, they wanted to emulate this bucolic experience and satisfy their deep connection to nature.

To think about different spaces in which to do different activities in different moments of the day is a mechanical mental form inherited by modern industrial culture.

Architecture has to get past and to unhinge this rigid manner to conceive life spaces.

This is the main effort for the renovation of a flat, contained inside an early-seventies block of apartments, despite its small size!

It is the second store in the Asian region opened in Sangenjaya, Tokyo. KINTON RAMEN is a ramen bar that has 10 stores in Toronto and Montreal, Canada and one in Seoul, Korea. This store located in a back of blind alley that entered about 30 meters from a busy road. How to guide customers to the store was designed as a first priority issue. Then there is a vacant space of 1000 mm in depth from alley to store front,and it was possible to use it freely. We installed a large canopy and illuminating the eaves a lot of brightly. Thereby I tried to change to area brightly and safety,from an alley had dark impression. The canopy expresses the identity of the ramen store originated in Canada by making it a distinctive design in North American building. The line light of the eaves extend from outside directry to the kitchen. Because, people notice to watch making ramen dynamic. We designed industry style in North America (duct air conditioning, reclaimed ceiling, mortar etc),mixed Japanese ZEN.I try to design an original ramen bar evenno in Japan.

Griffin School is a college preparatory high school located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, TX. The school’s diverse, liberal arts curriculum and creative student body define its reputation. For many years the school has occupied an assemblage of buildings in a residential neighborhood. The campus consists of a repurposed church, a house converted to classrooms, and a small workshop. To accommodate growing enrollment and to create an environment that embodies their core values, Griffin School added a new two-story classroom building to the existing ensemble.
