takayuki suzuki architecture atelier drapes sheer fabric across the ceiling of japanese house

located on a mountain slope in gamagori, japan, this house by takayuki suzuki architecture atelier is built for a couple and their three children. the project is topped with a single slanted roof that unifies its multiple levels while blocking out the view from the neighborhood and the western sun. inside, the japanese architecture studio has draped sheer, lightweight fabric across the ceiling, creating a serene living space.all images ©︎ ToLoLo studio

takayuki suzuki architecture atelier has designed the two-story wooden house as an open, lightweight construction that connects to its surroundings while maintaining enough privacy for its residents. the large, slanted roof that tops the entire residence brings in the trees of the garden while allowing for views of the park and the seascape in the distance. this way, ‘the residents can feel the presence of the city at every stage of their lives,’ as the studio explains.

the roof extends to the edge of the road, and by adjusting the height of the eaves it is possible to control the amount of visibility from the side of the road. the interior of the house oozes out beyond the boundary line of the road with the intention of connecting with the city. its wooden ceiling is draped with sheer fabric, which adds a lightweight, serene character to the building.

bamboo club + cafe by VTN architects takes center stage in the heart of vietnam

The place were the bamboo becames a part of the city scenary…

vinh, in central vietnam, has been a battleground for multiple wars resulting in a massive amount of destruction to the city and the surrounding region. renovation for vietnam’s biggest city in the central region of the country has steered toward european design with colonial style façades, providing VTN architects with its latest challenge.

from street level, the bamboo material is visible on both levels: the rooftop dome and cafe under

the project, titled ‘nocenco cafe,’ focused on morphing a middle-rise concrete building located in the city center of vinh. this scheme sees a renovated a cafe on the last floor and rooftop of a 7th floor turned into a neighborhood and city icon, with an emphasis on using a unique local material to create a new structure.

nocenco cafe‘ provides a completely unique interior but follows the bamboo theme

after a study period, VTN architects decided to use bamboo; an easily accessible material in the tropical climate reducing construction time and budget, but one that is also light and structurally sound.

the club has a cave like feel but sports open views of the surrounding city



the end product was a large dome structure on the roof with a club/lounge recognizable from any part of the city and a redesigned cafe on the floor below with an interior built using bamboo. this project equips a city that was once ravaged by war with a gathering place that has ‘a great view over the surrounding low-rise houses, towards the river, magnificent forest scape and various aged buildings.


the rooftop’s structure is built from bamboo and take the shape of an ‘L’



the vietnam-based architecture firm used ten bamboo columns to hide the existing structure and four additional columns to elegantly divide the space into different private areas, thus creating a cave-like space but juxtaposed with an open view of the surrounding city.

MINI LIVING + freelandbuck’s urban cabin offers living quality within 15m2

the 2018 los angeles design festival has begun and with it, one of the most anticipated installations has opened its doors: the MINI LIVING urban cabin. the new site-specific installation, which resides on the rooftop of the ROW DTLA, is the first in the series to house overnight guests. it follows the project that started in 2017, with stops in london and at A/D/O, brooklyn, NYC.

‘we’re working on our own very distinct interpretation of co-living. our aim is to enable a genuine sense of community, opening doors and creating public space,’ explains esther bahne, head of strategy and innovation MINI.‘our installations and visionary formats seek to explore a whole new range of possibilities in the creative use of space, and we’re now putting what we’ve learned into practice in the form of real-life construction projects.’



MINI’s urban cabin is a continuous installation project comprised of a small living unit that travels to various locations across the world, adapted for each city by local architects. each variation is designed with limited space and inspired by local surroundings, demonstrating creative approaches to the challenge of saving space while creating unique identities. the concept has been designed to demonstrate how a living space can be smart and flexible while, at the same time, make its inhabitants feel at home.



the LA cabin, with a footprint of just 15-square-meters, is a downtown oasis that allows visitors to embrace nature at the heart of the city. furthermore, the design focuses on enhancing a collective experience, rather than concentrating on just the domestic needs of one occupant.



this collective and open spirit is exactly what freelandbuck furthers with their part of the unique, locally-inspired urban cabin. by extending the perceptual boundaries and the contemplative life of a living space through spatial effects and experimental material assemblies, visitors can look and experience a transforming piece of architecture. two nested boxes, constructed with aluminum framing, are wrapped in translucent polycarbonate printed with the image of a third box that appears to be projected through the structure. the three-dimensional graphic surfaces vary between graphic alignment and kaleidoscopic effects as one moves around and through them. the indoor/outdoor quality created by the translucent skin is accentuated by a hanging garden which forms another cubic volume suspended from the enclosure.



on each side of freelandbuck’s kaleidoscopic experience room, the urban cabin features two outer modules: one for living and sleeping; the bathroom and kitchen on the other. the MINI LIVING design team have created these areas with a perforated metal facade on the exterior. as sunlight shines through the material, as well as the sporadic holes cut into the interior’s wooden cladding, varying mesmerizing and characterful patterns shimmer upon the floors and walls. making creative use of space down to the last, smart detail, the cabin features many space-saving solutions, such as push, fold and rotate mechanisms to further open the architecture to the environment and allow residents to adapt the space to their needs.



the MINI LIVING urban cabin will be open from june 8 – 10 during the LA design festival 2018. after the event, the urban cabin will continue its global tour, heading for beijing next and then onward to tokyo.

bjarke ingels group designs customizable tiny house that can be built in any location 

bjarke ingels group has designed a customizable micro-home that can be built within a rapid time-frame in any location. named ‘A45’, the project is an iteration of the traditional A-frame cabin, known for its pitched roof and angled walls. BIG has developed the qualities of this classic structure with a design that maximizes usable floor area by taking a square base and twisting the roof 45 degrees. this enables the tiny home to boast a soaring 13 foot (4 meter) ceiling height.

constructed in upstate new york, ‘A45’ is a prototypical tiny house designed for klein. founded by designer and interior architect søren rose, klein’s goal is to develop a diverse range of tiny house concepts with the world’s leading architects. the homes are to be built by leading manufacturers and can be delivered anywhere in the world within a six month lead time. BIG’s tiny home is customizable inside and out and will be available for future home-owners to purchase.

the project is an iteration of the traditional A-frame cabin



externally, the building’s crystal-like form lends the project an ever-changing appearance. internally, the 180 square foot space has been prioritized for comfort and to foster a close relationship with nature. a morsøe wood-burning fireplace is nestled in one corner, while off-grid equipment is tucked away in the back. furniture includes a kitchen designed by københavns møbelsnedkeri, hand-crafted furniture from carl hansen, and a bed fitted with kvadrat fabric designed by søren rose studio. the bathroom is made of cedar wood with fixtures by VOLA.

the design maximizes usable floor area by taking a square base and twisting the roof 45 degrees



the dwelling is assembled in modules on site and consists of 100% recyclable materials. this includes the timber frame, wall modules, a subfloor, and the triangular floor-to-ceiling window that comprises seven glass pieces. the structure is slightly elevated on four concrete piers that give optimal support and allow homeowners to place their tiny house in even the most remote areas.

the simply-shaped square and rectangular windows break up the sparse design like a cubist, picasso painting. its acute corners could cut the sky in half. these photos don’t show it, but you can imagine what this sharp black box might look like encased in a soft blanket of snow. in addition to its high-end design and curated amenities, drake the land ark RV was designed by people who actually live the mobile tiny house lifestyle. since 2011, founders of land ark brian and joni buzarde have been ‘guinea pigs,’ experiencing and recording the positives and paint points. after these years of research, the two designed drake.

JR’s hut is a true australian home on the range, built by a two person team

R’s hut at kimo estate is an australian home on the range. typically for property value, location is everything. most people pay top dollar to be were the action is, but this project in rural new south wales has the exact opposite virtue. there is absolutely nothing around it, except for beautiful rolling hills. the house appears as if part of a dream. as a true little house on the prairie, the plot was historically used as a farm but is now used to host weddings and other special getaways. it was designed by anthony hunt design and luke stanley architects to reference the a traditional farm house construction with some modern touches. it’s both cozy and bright inside, where the scenic views do not go to waste.

as impressive as the project’s design, is its construction. the structure at kimo estate was built by a two person owner-builder team, who used ‘sustainable australian hardwoods’. therefore the materials needed to be easily sourced and handled on site. according to the designers, ‘the hut’s form was inspired by a classic ‘A’ frame tent, which simultaneously provides both refuge from, and connection with, the natural environment.’ it only measures 28 square meters, but its small size contributes to the comfort and minimalism inside. in realizing this hilltop abode, anthony hunt and luke stanley have created a beautiful addition to this picturesque landscape.

lily jencks + nathanael dorent transform 17th century ruins into contemporary country home

 the collaborative efforts of lily jencks and nathanael dorent have transformed a set of stone ruins in scotland into a contemporary and environmentally friendly country home. in repurposing the original structure — the remains of an old farmhouse — the design team has created a property that affords sweeping views across the region’s picturesque, undulating landscape. ‘located in a remote countryside area, this project was conceived as passive and self-sufficient, well-insulated and using solar energy,’ explain the architects.

all images © sergio pirrone



as the original farmhouse had been modified on a number of occasions since its construction, lily jencks studio and nathanael dorent architecture carefully selected a sequence of materials and geometries that would highlight its storied history. ‘the first layer is the existing stone wall, within which sits a black waterproofing EPDM rubber clad pitched-roof ‘envelope’, and within that a curvilinear interior ‘tube’ wall system,’ says the design team. ‘this interior curved surface is made of insulating polystyrene blocks within a gridded wood structure, and is covered with glass reinforced plastic.’

a set of stone ruins has been turned into a contemporary country home



the different layers serve two main purposes: they emphasize the narrative of time, while reflecting a variety of architectural expressions. ‘these three layers are not designed as independent parts, rather, they take on meaning as their relationship evolves through the building’s sections,’ the architects continue. ‘they separate, come together, and intertwine, creating a series of architectural singularities, including in some areas a particularly revealing simultaneous reading of these three layers.’

the design team preserved the existing ruin walls



the house’s more public programs, including the kitchen and dining areas, are contained within the ‘tube’, while private areas, (including bedrooms, and bathrooms), are found at each end of the property. the home’s windows and doors are positioned in response to the the structure’s existing walls, as well as the views from the site. ‘at the windows and doors the tube funnels out towards the light, creating a ‘poched’ space within the thickness of the tube wall, and between the envelope and the tube, that can be used for furniture and storage,’ explains the design team.

rojkind arquitectos opens ‘foro boca’, a sculptural concert hall in coastal mexico

in boca del río, mexico, rojkind arquitectos has completed ‘foro boca’ — a structure designed to house the city’s philharmonic orchestra. the building’s shape was informed by the stones used for the foundation of the neighboring breakwater, with large sculptural volumes housing the concert hall and other programs. the project is located in the center of the city along a coastal avenue, and forms part of a larger masterplan intended to revitalize the neighborhood.

able to accommodate 966 guests, the main stage — designed for classical, traditional, and contemporary music — can be adapted for dance and theater performances. meanwhile, the back of house area has been designed specifically for the orchestra, containing all necessary facilities. the boca del rio philharmonic orchestra, formed in 2014, has attracted local and foreign musicians, making it the heart of the cultural life of the city. in addition to providing a yearly season of orchestral concerts, the center will house an after-school social development program for low-income children named ‘orquestando armonia’.

the project is located in the mexican city of boca del río



‘the foro boca has the goal of functioning as an urban detonator capable of inciting modernity in the area’, explains rojkind arquitectos.‘the forum itself is a tool that has permitted the reconstruction and renovation of the infrastructure and urban image of this part of the city.’ see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.

The Y House by co(X)List Studio

Architects: co(X)ist Studio
Location: Austin, United States
Team: Megan Lin, Frank Lin
Area: 1936.0 ft2
Project Year: 2014
Photographs: Patrick Y. Wong
Consultants: MJ Structure Engineer
Construction Duration: 12 Months
Construction Cost: $260,000 USD

The spaces are meant to be lived, the places were we spend most of our lives are meant to be usefull and beautifull. In this amazing work, the guys at co(X)ist Studio created an amazing field hideout were inspiración meets desing and under the pretty summer sun of Austin, must be an amazing place to let the creativity flow on.

In the words of the architect:” Originally built as a ranch-style house in 1962, the remodeled Y House is sensitively designed to weave into the fabric of the Sherwood Oaks neighborhood in South Austin while simultaneously providing a fresh and modern way of living. Conceived by the architect-clients as an investment property, the remodel and addition to the house provide both living and working space for the owners, as well as a reflection of the design values of their architectural practice”.

The addition portion of the project splits the rectangle at the center to create a Y shape at the private end of the house. This split allows for the master bedroom to have privacy and separation from the other bedrooms, both physically and visually. The split also creates a courtyard at the end of what was once a dead-end corridor, bringing light, views and an added level of interest to a typically mundane space.

In the main living area of the house, the previously compartmentalized rooms have been opened up to create an open concept floor plan. The back wall of the dining room can be completely opened up to the back porch, extending the living space to the outdoors to take advantage of the warm Texas weather. This design also allows for cross-ventilation of air from the front of the house to the back, and creates a strong visual connection to the outside from all spaces within the house.

The back porch is an extension of the indoor living space, running the entire length of the back of the house with access from the dining room, guest room, and master bedroom. The porch canopy incorporates the natural canopy of the large existing crepe myrtle tree to provide shade and protection from the Texas sun.

The garage of the house has been transformed into an office for the architectural practice of the owners. This provides them with a space to meet with clients, as well as access to their home as a living example of what they do professionally through their design practice. The home uses several re-claimed materials, including a bench and front porch trellis constructed from the wood studs of the original home. The house also uses abundant daylighting of the spaces through ample windows and skylights to reduce the electrical load.

mA-Style, estudio de arquitectura Japonesa reimagina la vivienda tradicional japonesa.

imagenes de © kai nakamura


El estudio de Arquitectura mA-Style se dio a la tarea de crear una casa separada del hogar familiar para una joven pareja, la casa ‘koya no sumika’ fue diseñada de modo que sus ocupantes tuvieran un espacio privado para dormir y descansar mientras que la cocina, el baño, la estancia principal y los cuartos para niños permanecieran compartidos con el resto de la casa, lo cual en la cultura japonesa es un modo de reforzar los lazos familiares tan unidos.

la estructura esta compuesta por laminas de contrachapado de 62 mm que sostienen un techo triangular con una ventana elevada que proporciona abundante luz a las distintas áreas de la casa. Las áreas internas añaden ritmo y contraste a todos los elementos en esta estructura de una sola planta con una pequeña área de estudio y un dormitorio en armonía con los elementos internos de la estructura. La madera le proporciona ese toque de calidez que es potenciado por la luz difusa del ventanal superior.

La estructura se conecta por su lado oeste por un pequeño corredor pero separado visualmente por un jardín tradicional en medio. Sin mas que decir es una interesante re interpretación de la casa tradicional japonesa de los entornos rurales para darle un sabor único, una aparencial de modernidad que no choca con lo que un hogar debe ser, un lugar agradable para vivir.

Tengbom Arquitectos y su diseño de una casa mínima para estudiantes #smalllofts.

Imágenes de bertil hertzberg


Es una regla cuando se es estudiante, que si debes ir a otra ciudad a cursar tu carrera, siempre se vuelve un problema complejo encontrar un lugar no muy caro para dormir, hacer tareas y en general tener una vida digna cuando se esta lejos de casa. En otros países el asunto se vuelve mas complicado por las limitaciones de espacio, sobre todo en Europa donde los precios ya son demasiado elevados en las rentas y los espacios urbanos son muy limitados.

Por ello el estudio de Arquitectura Tengbom con sede en Suecia desarrollo un proyecto de un espacio habitacional para estudiantes reduciendo los elementos necesarios al mínimo sin sacrificar habitabilidad. El espacio en cuestión es un área de 10 metros cuadrados con todo lo que un estudiante pudiera necesitar usando madera laminada de origen local, materiales reciclados y optimizando espacios pero aun mejor, reduciendo el costo promedio de la renta del espacio en un 50%, lo cual para un estudiante foráneo con presupuesto limitado es ideal.


El proyecto recibe el nombre de “Smart Student Unit” y cuenta con un baño, una cocina, un pequeño comedor y una cama elevada en un espacio que legalmente seria imposible de considerar – al menos no en Suecia, donde las leyes no permiten áreas habitacionales tan pequeñas por motivos de derechos humanos – y contó con la colaboración de los propios estudiantes de la Universidad de Lund, así como de la compañía de bienes raíces AF bostäder.


Tal ves en Latam este concepto es muy extraño debido a que no sufrimos de las limitaciones de espacio que padecen en ciudades europeas, donde los costos de las rentas son tan elevados que aun con un poder adquisitivo alto un estudiante termina pasando penurias – como mas de uno en todo el planeta – pero el diseño inteligente del espacio le da un valor a este proyecto increíble, y aunque no seamos estudiantes, es un lugar individual muy agradable para vivir.

Su techo de dos aguas a 45 grados se basa en un marco de madera simple, pero bien estructurado y resistente.
Este gran techo adorna el interior de la vivienda, creando un área común espaciosa e iluminada. A pesar de el gran espacio central abierto al sur de la construcción las habitaciones, los baños y las áreas de almacenamiento colocadas al norte tienen sus áreas privadas y están finamente ajustadas para aprovechar las características del proyecto, creando zonas de oclusión que dividen el espacio.

Los arquitectos buscaron desarrollar un diseño que se abría hacia el paisaje adyacente, hecha de 2 × 12 vigas espaciadas 455mm de separación, el techo 45 grados descansa sobre un marco de madera simple de 105x105mm y utiliza contrachapado estructural para asegurar que el edificio es resistente a los terremotos. Desde el nivel superior, un frontón con un gran ventanal de cristal presenta una interesante vista del paisaje rural, bañando la totalidad de la propiedad en la luz natural.

Surgiendo de manera natural de la gran estructura del techo un espacio en forma de chimenea provee de una ventilación natural. ‘El arquitecto se inspiró en un pequeño pueblo que vio en áfrica,’ explica sawa Hidetoshi. ‘el aire cálido se eleva y se escapa a través de la ventana alta, el aire fresco filtra en el interior a través de las ventanas de la planta baja creando un flujo constante que refresca el interior”.

El detalle del área común abierta y luminosa, genera un espacio interno que aprovecha la luz exterior para generar una vista que apacigua la mente, más aun si se adereza con una sala de estar abierta y simple, lamparas que iluminen el techo en la noche y lleven ese tono cálido de la madera a un nivel de belleza casi divino.

La micro-cabaña de Nozomi Nakabayashi en Reino Unido #Arquitectura

todas las imágenes © henrietta williams

Escondida en un pequeño bosque de robles en Dorset, Reino Unido, encontramos la “cabaña sobre pilotes” diseñada y construido personalmente por el arquitecto Nakabayashi Nozomi.

En un tamaño mínimo de 2.5m 2.5m esta micro-cabaña tiene como propósito ser un lugar de descanso y concentración para su cliente, un escritor que busca espacios para la creación de su obra, un pequeño estudio que ademas cuenta con una terraza para cálidas charlas aderezadas por un te o una comida privada al aire libre.


La cabaña mínima esta equipada con una cama oculta, una estufa de madera – perfecta para cocinar alejado de la civilización – y una mínima terraza para placer personal del dueño.

Para construir esta cabaña mínima, el arquitecto uso partes prefabricadas que fueron llevadas por el equipo de solo dos personas al lugar de la construcción y montadas usando herramientas de baterías, solo ocupando una pequeña grua para secciones demasiado pesadas.

El tejado fue extendido al exterior para permitir una cornisa con tragaluces horizontales de policarbotato con soportes de madera contrachapada que permiten iluminar la parte mas interna del techo y así proveer un poco mas de luz a la cabaña, que al no contar con luz eléctrica interna requiere toda la luz del exterior que se pueda obtener. Se uso corcho como aislante, para los pilotes de soporte se recuperaron viejos postes telefónicos, y para la madera expuesta al exterior Cedro Rojo, ademas de Abeto de Douglas para la estructura principal.
