House in Tezukayama / Fujiwaramuro Architects

April 1, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

This small house is located on a narrow street in a dense Osaka neighborhood. We were involved in the project starting with the search for a lot and visited a number of potential sites with the client. Ultimately, we selected this sited measuring 3.74 m across by 16.31 m deep. One of the client’s requests was that the house provide places to display their photos, pictures, and decorations. The lot’s small size, however, meant the living space had to be compact and multi-story, with some of the space allocated to a staircase. Furthermore, the crowded residential neighborhood promised little chance of good exterior views.

26 Nam Ngu Homestay / Nemo Studio

April 1, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

26 Nam Ngu is a homestay located in Nam Ngu Street in the city centre. This street is narrow but quite crowded with full of restaurants and shops. Also, there are various houses, including old, rebuilt and new buildings. The homestay is 6,5m wide in the facade and 25m long. Other sides of the construction are considerably close with different houses. Our architectures have decided to create more space for this project as a solution. In the facade, a large wood deck right near the entrance is a place for visitors to rest and view the street. A tree is planted in the deck as a green area for the building and also for the populous neighborhood. Behind the deck , there are a spacious reception room and airy stairs leading to the mezzanine and the bar in the basement.
