House in Torinoki / Taichi Nishishita architect & associate

December 8, 2023 Hana Abdel 0

A residence for my parents in their age 60s. Although the site is widely bordered by a road on the south, it is surrounded by houses, and simply relying on the south side of the road does not provide a sense of security. The site lacks a physical scale, so I wondered how I could create a small, human-like space.

Kindergarten of Museum Forest / Atelier Apeiron – SZAD

December 8, 2023 Andreas Luco 0

An Inside Out Gameboard for Children from Old Neighborhood. This is a kindergarten reconstruction and expansion project, located in the first residential community built in Shenzhen in the 1980s. On the north side of the base is a preserved old building with a very irregular outline on the south side and very close to the housing. Rather than following the traditional matrix layout, we developed a new geometric relationship between the new building and the site, by organizing a series of axes in different directions. It is the most efficient way for classrooms to avoid the influence of the residents and the main road. The gaps among the education blocks give a smooth flow to the entire campus. The new together with the old building enclose a large oval courtyard to hold various group events.

House in Nanjo / Spicy Architects

December 7, 2023 Hana Abdel 0

A house for a family of three. The site is located on a hill in a residential area from the 80’s in southern Okinawa. In the surrounding area, there are many uniquely Okinawan houses with a typical almost flat roof and large eaves sitting on a rectangular concrete frame. The shape of the house protects from subtropical storms and prevents strong direct sunlight from penetrating into the interior. For this project, we decided to follow the lead of our predecessors and the context the house is situated in, but with a wooden structure instead, since this was necessary considering the required functions and construction cost.
