Haffenden House / PARA

The Haffenden House is a writing studio with a garage/breezway at ground-level, library and writing space on the second level, and a curved/soft reading room on the third level. The project finds itself within the subur- buban realm, referencing Gianni Pettena’s Ice House from 1972, as a blank spot within the repetive image of “house.” In the rear yard, the fabric solution is used on the interior as a curtain, offering the owners the flexibility to control the relationship of privacy within their context. The poet’s studio uses a translucent silicon-impregnated fabric skin for a lightfilled writing room without the visual distraction of the suburbs. O House / Hideyuki Nakayama Architecture.

Opera / Taka Shinomoto + Voar Design Haus

Taka Shinomoto and Voar Design Haus add layers of spaces within a Tokyo apartment. Typically finish materials are bound by the programmatic boundaries of a room, which makes a defined block of space. This could be compared to a brownie, it is a sweet treat that is the same all the way through. Taka Shinomoto and Voar Design Haus set out to make a space like an Opera cake: a sweet treat but with layers of different materials. House in Kashiwa / Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop.

A “container” that changes as you design and live in it, and design it, on top of the challenge of living in such a house must continue to give you the pleasure of living there. Clothes, kitchen goods and other things related to their hobbies can be freely placed, and their living space can be filled with things that promote enjoyment and happiness in their lives. During the design stage, a new addition to their family arrived to add to the enjoyment of their home. Without defining or limiting the future possibilities of this family, we designed a house that allows for flexibility within their daily lives, such as hobbies and family.

50m2 House / OBBA

According to the Seoul Institute’s 2015 census data, the average floor area of a newlywed’s home is 72.7m2, and 44.6% of newlyweds live in an apartment building and/or multipurpose commercial/residential building typology. Two thirds of newly-wed couples lease on deposit basis, and 49.3% of those couples pay 100,000,000 to 200,000,000 KRW. The standardized typology and over-inflated housing price limit the parameter of choice in choosing a house for a young couple. The clients were soon to be married. The site is sitting in an entrance location of the Gaemimaeul, one of the few remaining colonies of rag pickers in Seoul, Seodaemoon-ku, Hongjaedong.

In this intervention the design challenge was to give to a small apartment of 28 sqm the living comfort of a bigger one. Minumum but livable service areas were designed to leave as much space as possible to the main room. The main space is simple and clean, a box labeled by the side walls paneled (batipin - plywood) and by a large window overlooking on the terrace to extend as much as possible the interior space to the outside.

Instead of simply putting openings on the direction to Yodo River, we displayed the small windows from the ground to second floor spirally, as if they were swirling.

Vertical Loft / Shift Architecture Urbanism. Ant-house / mA-style architects. House H by Sou Fujimoto. November 15th, 2009 House H is the latest project by Sou Fujimoto Architects in Tokyo.

It’s new experiment to find a balance between volumes, spaces and light. There’re a lot of stairs in this house and I’m also wondering where the bedrooms are. But I wouldn’t mind if Sou would do some projects in Berlin. Here are 2 other projects by Sou Fujimoto: House N and Next Generation House. House NA by Sou Fujimoto Architects. This Tokyo house by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has hardly any walls and looks like scaffolding (photos by Iwan Baan).

House NA has three storeys that are subdivided into many staggered platforms. The few walls that do exist are mostly glass, making certain spaces secure without adding privacy. See more projects by Sou Fujimoto here, including a stack of four house-shaped apartments. Share House LT Josai in Japan by Naruse Inokuma Architects. Japanese firm Naruse Inokuma Architects has designed a shared occupancy house in Nagoya with communal areas for eating, cooking and relaxing that encourage the residents to interact in different ways (+ slideshow). Naruse Inokuma Architects says the building was designed in response to the increasing demand in Japan for houses where unrelated individuals share kitchens, living spaces and bathrooms. Whereas most of these homes are adapted from existing properties, the architects based this new build on the principles of communal living and the need "for complete strangers to naturally continue to share spaces with one another.

" Bedrooms with identical dimensions are arranged across the building's three levels, with the voids between them housing an open plan living, dining and kitchen area and a rug space on the first floor. A dining table near the entrance provides seating for large groups, while the kitchen counter, sitting room and rug space offer alternatives for smaller gatherings.
