Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Article source: MODERAGE INC.

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. I’m now try to built on this.

Balcony House in Tokyo, Japan by TAKESHI HOSAKA architects

Creating an interior-exterior dialogue

A balcony has a free existence, even inside a house. With neither its function nor its user specified, it can be used in multiple ways; for example, it does not matter if it gets dirty from exposure to the weather. It brings residents relief and offers them relaxation, as well as enjoyment. While a balcony has an elegant presence, it is also solid. It is a presence that tends to be forgotten, but it is unforgettable. A balcony.

Jyubako in Tokyo, Japan by KENGO KUMA AND ASSOCIATES

Monday, May 28th, 2018


Jyubako is a trailer house (mobile home) developed and produced by KKAA and snow peak, a Japanese manufacturer for outdoor goods. For the designing of a trailer house, there are regulatory requirements to be cleared in its size and weight, so to make the living place spacious, we set the door that can be kept open.

It is a proposal for another nomadic lifestyle.

Oyamadai House in Tokyo, Japan by frontofficetokyo

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Article source: frontofficetokyo

With a flag shaped site, bound on every side by close neighbors, the understandable instinct might be to step away from the city, retreat behind walls where privacy is better assured. The family that purchased the site saw instead a chance to be as open as possible, using the small degree of isolation as an opportunity to connect to the metropolis from a slight remove. Although the neighbors are close, the tendency in Tokyo is to reject the city and build closed walls, ironically allowing the family to take the opposite stance and open their home without loss of privacy. In this way the site is not unlike a clearing in the midst of a forest.

Kanda Terrace in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: Key Operation Inc. 

Located in a central Tokyo neighborhood with many low and mid-rise office buildings, this rental building for restaurants stands on a long, narrow lot, surrounded on three sides by streets.

Key considerations when designing a building of this type are how to create a group identity for the tenants and how to relate the units to the cityscape.

Because of its city-center location, this mid-rise building needed to be commercially efficient, occupying the entire permissible floor area ratio and filling that space with restaurant tenants on every floor.
