「Tokyo House Renovation」 竣工並びに完成見学会実施

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.

In the interior of the building, we used elaborate craftsman’s techniques to build an artificial rock wall in the living room. The wooden boards used in the space are cut from a single walnut tree, creating an interesting textural juxtaposition against the rock wall. Introducing these naturalistic elements allowed us to create a dynamic surface and Japanesque atmosphere even within a limited space.





日本都市計画学会学術研究論文発表 in 北海道大学

The Academic papers recital of the City Planning Institute of Japan in Hokkaido. I made a presentation in the academic papers recital of City Planning Institute of Japan in Hokkaido, about “the process of examinations for legalizing casinos in Singapore “The word IR is the abbreviated title for “Integrated Resort “. In the facility, there are hotels, MICE, shopping centers, casinos and so forth. Last year, the Japanese government approved the bill for propulsion of the IR. At this moment, arguments in the National Diet are about social risks, such as gamming addiction, deterioration in security, and economical merits, such as investment from oversea and job creation from beginning to end. Mass media and public opinions follow those two points. However, I believe that there are a couple of important factors that should be argued. One is tourism industry and the other is city planning. The purpose of my dissertation is to stimulate the debate from different perspectives.

The dissertation would be perusal in the J-STAGE.(※Japanese only except abstruct)
