Waro Kishi + K.ASSOCIATES – Key Projects

Featured Buildings by Waro Kishi, alphabetical:

GLA Chukyo Hall, Nagoya, Aichi
Date built: 2016
This is a convention hall located in Naka-ku, Nagoya City. It is built on an approximately 1,500 square-meter site, on top of the station where two main subway lines cross, and facing two roads: main road on the north side and a neighborhood road on the south.

House, Tokyo
Date built: 2005

House on maple-tree hills, Tokyo
Date built: 2019
A house in a residential area on the outskirts of Tokyo. Compared to the narrow front-side width, its depth goes further down.

Two-thirds of its site is located approximately 3 meters above the street level. Therefore, the floor facing the street is, in fact, underground and one floor up is the ground and street-level. Including the penthouse, the residence has a total of 4 floors.

Hu-tong House, Osaka, Japan
Date built: 2002

Kim House, Ikuno-ku, Osaka, Japan
Date built: 1987
The small house is located in one of Osaka’s downtown areas, where row houses with pre-war plottages line the streets, interspersed with factories and warehouses. For the building, part of a row house was removed.

In the site thus created, a double-deck steel construction (with a frontage of one bay of 2.58 m and a depth of three bays of 5.4 m) was erected with a small courtyard at its center. The floors of both the courtyard and the dining room are covered with white tiles, so that both areas form a single space without distinction between indoors and outdoors, when the doors between them are fully opened.
