弊社設計の２作品が海外建築賞「The Architecture Master Prize」をW受賞しました。
Tsukishima is one of the few areas of the city center that survived the WWII air raids. Many of its traditional wooden houses, shops, and monjayaki pancake restaurants remain intact. However, in recent years the demands of modern safety standards have made redevelopment in the area necessary. We’ve reimagined this pachinko facility with an eye towards retaining vintage charm. In contrast to the garish facades common amongst gaming facilities, we’ve installed traditional Japanese wooden lattices and artificial rock walls. The interior walls feature wooden boards cut from a single horse chestnut tree. This design theory, combining modern entertainment with traditional designs, appeals to both tourists and locals.
「TOKYO HOUSE RENOVATION」
The building we renovated was 43 years old. We started by repairing the outer wall, as well as the water-proof on the waterproofing on the roof. After removing the damaged tiles from the building’s exterior, we coated the wall with mortar and painted it with a waterproof varnish for a smooth finish. In order to preserve the classical look of the building, we retained some of the exterior tiles. The minimalist look of the mortared exterior is offset by new wooden-style shutters.
