TOKYO NEWS ANNEXE , YOKAHAMA

This modest garden pavilion for Mr Okuyama of Tokyo News was completed in 2001. It is attached to an existing traditional Japanese house and provides an additional suite of reception rooms in Western style: a reception hall and stair, a dining room and kitchen, a sitting room with study and media room, and a generous garage in the cellar.

The building is constructed in concrete to the rigourous Japanese earthquake code and finished in painted render with a slated roof. A number of features were made in the UK - the ironwork of the stairs inside and out, the plasterwork and much of the furniture. The architectural design was undertaken in collaboration with Yasuo Fujiwara of ArFam Tokyo. The interior design and furnishing was by Mary Fox Linton.
