Nakagawa Office Extension by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects
Nakagawa Office Extension is a minimalist building extension located in Nara, Japan, designed by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects. This project is for an addition to the former premises of a company that they had built 2 years ago. With almost no changes to the original, the addition is structurally separate with the washroom, kitchen, entrance, stairs, and main circulation of the building now provided by the addition. In order to preserve the amount of parking to within the building’s footprint limitation, the building has a shallow plan of 2x20m allowing for the conversion to be completed within the allowable budget and time frame.
