иконописthe hows and whys of the invitations we get are still a mystery to us, but not so long ago we received an e-mail out of the blue from a popular japanese architecture tv show asking if they could showcase the yoyogi house in an upcoming episode.

after a quick discussion with the owners of the house we agreed to introduce them to the producer and almost magically the house was on the tv machine with very little work on our side (which is a nice change).  Which means through the magic of the internets we can bring it to you.

It is of course all in Japanese, but the host is so happy and positive it really isn’t necessary to understand the words. For myself I am impressed that he has been happily viewing homes for 22 years and still seems completely enthusiastic.

post a nice place to visit

One of the reasons residential architecture can be especially fun and satisfying is that we get to know the clients much better than usual (for one thing they are individuals and not a board representing 150 people).  It also means we get to go back and visit under casual circumstances, which is a groovy perk in my opinion.

A few months back we visited the owners of the yoyogi house for dinner with our families, and took some pics that are quite nice for showing how the home is lived in.  Personally I am really looking forward to seeing how wild the garden will grow over the summer.  It is already becoming much more interesting than the orderly rows we had planted to start with.

we were going through the photographer’s pictures for the yoyogi house yesterday and found a couple of images that we quite like but for whatever reason didn’t put in the portfolio, and that the magazine editors didn’t use either.  Daisuke did such a good job, so we thought we’d post a few of them here.

Thanks Daisuke for the great work!

The Yoyogi house is again in the news, this time with MARK magazine. For those who don’t know, MARK is a Dutch publication with a fresh eye, published in English and most likely available wherever you happen to be living (hint hint).
