This house is located on the suburb of the city of Sapporo. The site is a typical suburban subdivision and height difference between the road is large. Footprint is determined by building coverage and wall retreat of the architectural law and the slope of the site approach.

“chocolatexture”, released in 2015, was based on the theme of chocolates with the same raw materials but with diverse textures, and different tastes created from those distinctive textures.
This small house is conceived as a contemporary glass box that floats atop the surrounding wheat fields. Facing south towards the distant mountains, the house adapts well to the cold, snowy winters and hot, dry summers. In the winter, the orientation takes advantage of passive solar heat gain from the low-angled winter sun, while in the summer, roof overhangs and a light shelf block the high hot summer sun from entering. Large, operable windows provide cross-ventilation cooling, lessening the house’s need for air-conditioning. In addition to its sustainability, the design responds to the traditional architecture of barns and farmhouses in the Pacific Northwest.
We all like a relaxing holiday, but what if you could literally float away from all your worries? The Floatwing floating home lets you do just that. Whether used as a romantic getaway, a place to stay with friends or a watersports base camp, it can move leisurely around the calm serenity of a lake. Designed by nautical design and engineering firm Friday, the Floatwing is reminiscent of the Floating Seahorse properties being developed in Dubai. It allows its occupants to up-anchor and move to another lagoon idyll when they wish, using two small outboard motors that produce a top speed of 3 kt .
This project is an experiment on the theme of the survival of the plant in unsuitable environment for plant life. It is a polygon with multiple scenarios where the plants may have to find their own way to the light. Modules simulates real urban conditions, such as the gap between the parapets and concrete structures, paving tiles, ventilation and sewage hatches, in short, all those places, where seemingly nothing can grow. Stylistic and conceptual framework has served as inspiration to the post-Soviet architecture, which was popular to use a combination of limestone and brass.
Hindie is a brand that seeks to introduce the habit of drinking good tea in our society by generating profound human connection through the rituals concerned in brewing and drinking, which involve high levels of meditation and contemplation. The brand’s essence revolves around Asia’s respectful and spiritual tea culture, taking conscientious inspiration from every scent and flavor present in each sip. Hindie tea ingredients are carefully selected and always presented in whole herb strands to offer the drinker a natural and superior taste experience. Since whole herb strands are one of the brand’s most distinctive qualities, Savvy developed an identity based on textures that exhibit their peculiar, organic essence. In addition to exalting the product’s unique nature, the texture brings equilibrium to a clean, premium identity without sacrificing its exceptional earthly origin. The rest of the graphic language aspires to position Hindie as a product of unparalleled quality, ideal for those who find the strength and tranquility in tea to carry on with their everyday activities, and for those companies who consider Hindie a perfect compliment to their gastronomic offerings.
Dutch architect Eduard Böhtlingk designed an extendable campervan named “De Markies”, or “The Awning”. “De Markies” was an entry in the “Temporary Living” competition 1985 and was conceived as a mobile home. On the road, it measures 2.00 m by 4.50 m, and once it has arrived at its destination its floorspace can be increased threefold in a matter of seconds. “De Markies” was awarded the Public Prize at the Rotterdam Design Prize 1996.
