Old Cars and Old Buildings in the City

(日本語版は末尾にあります) An old car like this one has got a timeless character to it. Old cars have a charm similar to that of old buildings. They are irreplaceable and give us a richer sense of time and culture we live in.

At Yamada Architecture, the construction phase of another old building renovation I 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.
