An old car like this one has got a timeless character to it. Some of post WWII era buildings have a similar charm. They are irreplaceable and can give us a richer sense of time and culture we live in.
At Yamada Architecture, the construction phase of another old building renovation YA designed has just begun. This time, it’s not machiya, but a small steel-framed building from the 70s. The building had this unique traditional Japanese style interiors which I’ve found fascinating: It gives a unique character to this otherwise small generic stucco box. The new facade design incorporates this original character in Japanese aesthetics.
