This could have been a very interesting cafe project, if completed. In 2008 Japanese architect Hiroki Tanabe developed a small café house of 62 sqm — a two-story complex which has an elongated U shape. On the first floor there is a kitchen and the café doubling as living room. The second floor houses a […]
Science, metaphysicism, and architecture meet in Atelier Norisada Maeda‘s “I Remember You” home. More at Spoon & Tamago.
Even more than today’s HG House — yes, I know it’s confusing — I really dig Sou Fujimoto’s House H, especially the interior — it has an M.C. Escher meets Muji feel to it. Photographer Iwan Baan has a gallery of 40+ photos from the house. Via Designboom.

Great newsbit of the day: SANAA‘s Kazuyo Sejima has been announced as the director of next year’s Venice Architecture Biennale. She is the first woman to occupy the post.
I love all the open areas in Takeshi Hosaka Architects‘ Insidehouse & Outsidehouse — Designboom posts photos of the interior.
It may just be a proposal, but Suppose Design Office‘s “Urban Airgap” design for a competition in Greece looks pretty damn amazing. It would be to revitalize a rundown area of Athens. In their research, Suppose Design Office noted that the existing building designs in the Kerameikos-Metaxourgeio area did not allow for a window opening […]

Built back in 2006, I’m liking the tower-like Rokushomaki House, designed by Masuda Atelier and located up in Saitama. Via MoCo Loco.
If you have the chance, come celebrate Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein‘s 20 years in Japan at SuperDeluxe tonight (November 1, 18:00-22:00, free entrance). For this one night, the 20 Crystal Collection — models of their works encased in crystals — that was first shown earlier this year during their Gallery MA show will be […]
