Ichijoji House in Kyoto, Japan by atelier Luke

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Article source: atelier Luke 

A deliberate balance between modernity and tradition creates this unique and textured retreat in the suburbs of Kyoto.

Osaka based design studio, atelier Luke, collaborated closely with craftspeople in Kyoto, Osaka and Nagano to apply traditional finishes and techniques to the design and renovation of this postwar terraced house. The client, a Danish-Australian furniture maker, wished to modernise the home without abandoning the character that makes traditional Japanese houses unique. From this position of respect, a design approach was adopted whereby modern attitudes to living would be balanced and contrasted with tradition.

Riverside Villa in Kyoto, Japan by Atelier Boronski

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Article source: Atelier Boronski

On a typically small site wedged between the road and the river this house in Kyoto is a kind of European canal-house in Japan. It is close to the city center but in a quiet street near cafes and restaurants, bakeries and a chocolatier. The museum district (with temples and shrines) is a short walk, and there are many cherry trees lining nearby streets.

Kant K in Kyoto, Japan by koyori DATT

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: koyori DATT

A residential complex located in Muko city, Kyoto. The building is facing to a historical street. The location is mixed with historic sites and countryside sceneries as well as the modern shops and apartments, making the area rather unarranged. Thus, we aimed not just to meet the requirements as a preferable rent but also aimed to make the architecture have positive effects to the townscape when to design this apartment.

MTRL Kyoto in Japan by Fumihiko Sano/studio PHENOMENON

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Article source: Fumihiko Sano/studio PHENOMENON

Walking down a street off Kawahara-Gojo in Kyoto, you will find an old Japanese-style house. The house is over a hundred years old, built in the Meiji era. Giyōfū architecture was the method the master-carpenter applied, copying Western architecture but using Japanese traditional wooden techniques. After being used as print shop and furniture store over the decades, the house was renovated to a co-working space called “MATERIAL KYOTO”.

New Kyoto Town House 2 in Japan by ALPHAVILLE architects

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects

The current wooden house system based on bearing wall calculation hardly fits in with the ‘eel’s bed’ or the elongated housing lots typical of Kyoto, an old capital of Japan. While the width of lots has been segmentalized  to provide minimal daylight, ventilation and access over a long period of time, the only option today of opening up the frontage is either steel structure or specialized wooden frame structure.

Kyoto University Hospital / Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development in Japan by emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design

Second and third floor spaces of the Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development (CRCMeD) at Kyoto University Hospital. These two floors, occupied by Canon Inc. and Kyoto University, will become the future site for projects developed in collaboration between people lending their expertise to research initiatives and a great number of supporters. The thoughts of each of these people working in various fields will come together in this space, bringing together a convergence of knowledge and skills that will create new possibilities. The design expresses the invisible “threads” that connect each of these different thoughts to one another, just like how threads are spun together to create a strong, supple fabric. Specifically, ito (Japanese for “thread”) is used as a motif that would bridge the second and third floors of this research center, designing a space that came together in a single, massive flow. Just like how new possibilities emerge out of encounters between people, a spectrum of different colors appear at the junctions between threads, creating chromatic combinations that resemble landscapes: field green, sky blue, light cherry pink, snow white, dusky orange, and white horizons.
