Daylight Entrance

May 10th, 2010

The Daylight Entrance by Daniel Rybakken is all about the illusion of daylight. It’s an light installation in the entrance and staircase of an office building. Both don’t have any natural light, but these panels give you the positive sensation of sunlight. The back of the panels were hollowed by CNC-milling and then backlit with a lot of LED’s.
You might also want to have a look at his “Subconscious Effect of Daylight” sidetable.

Apartment in Katayama

April 21st, 2010

This apartment building designed by Mitsutomo Matsunami looks stunning! The fact that the houses next doors only have 2 floors, makes this 7 story high building even more majestic. It’s build on a 110.55m² piece of land and has a total floor of 341.38m². There are 10 apartments in the building, measuring between 23.2m² and 35.7m², which is tiny compared to European ones.

CSD Architecten

December 23rd, 2009

This is the house of Britt Crepain & Stefan Spaens in the center of Antwerp (Belgium). Together with Joep Debie they form CSD Archtecten, so they designed and build their own home themselves. The footprint of the house is only 50 sqm (4 x 12.5 meters) but the have a basement, ground floor, 4 split-levels and a roof terrace. Brit also designed the kitchen, library, wardrobes etc. They really optimized every room, behind the door in the library there’s a toilet. The rooms, the light, the materials, the interior … when can I move in?

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.

L-house

July 28th, 2009

When we think of a house, we mostly think of its facade first. But in the end we live on the inside and our neighbors can enjoy the facade. Maybe that’s why Go Kuwata doesn’t show us the exterior of the L-house, it’s just not that important for the residents.

Otake House by Suppose Design Office

July 13th, 2009

This passive solar design house in Otake, Japan, was designed by Suppose Design Office. It’s amazing how they can open up the living room, it becomes one space with the terrace. I’m not really sure about the exhibitionistic bathroom though.
You can find all the details about this house at yatzer.
