DOCKS by Romero Vallejo

 

“While industrial manufacturing processes and their architecture are a source of inspiration to generate a construction detail that the aluminum base structure is developed from, an analysis of the different manners in which people sit down, including both improvised and informal ways, helps to define the collection´s overall geometry. Docks is a modular, open and flexible furniture collection that takes into account the links between the pieces and interaction with the human body, resulting in an unequivocal sense of balance. Cushions and supports are placed over a light, stackable and easily transportable aluminum structure to create more complex sofas, beds and rest areas. Lights, shadows and rhythm generate abstract forms that take us back to the roots of the Mediterranean. Docks is the essence of GANDIABLASCO.” (more…)

With the help of a simple bolt and screw system, the lid can be opened and reveals a container, which can store things like books, magazines, cookies or whatever is needed in the living room.

4 Columns by FT Architects

Photographer: Shigeo Ogawa

“This is a house we have designed the first time in 7 years. The site is situated ten-odd minutes away from the city center and is closed to a huge river. Originally it was an area where farmland and factories existed all over. However the area has developed rapidly into housing land in recent years, and numerous small-scale developments are conducted without any coordination. As a result, a miniature version of a suburban single-family house are build in the surroundings, creating a typical scenery of a contemporary city, which is neither the city center nor the suburb.”

The insertion of new steel-framed windows and doors help to connect, open up rooms and also function to framing views through to the garden. When shut, they enclose the rooms to create warm, intimate spaces. (more…)

Otsu House by ALTS Design Office

Photographer: Yuta Yamada

This house was built in the newly-developed subdivision surrounding new housing. While planning a design with client many times, we hit upon a keyword: “comfy house” so we considered how to make a welcoming atmosphere with lots of light. With a vault –shaped opening in the simply laid-out compartment, the space is designed to be airy and rhythmical. The light spilling through a large curved window will encompass the room in a comfy manner. You can enjoy the light and shadows made by sunrise and sunset. This “comfy house” will lead you to an unusual world. (more…)
