【ADF Web Magazine】Renovating and Residing in Affordable Properties in Japan Part 2 : How to Buy Budget-Friendly Homes

In Part 2, Akihiro Yamamoto discusses acquiring neglected homes in rural Japan. Despite risks, buying such properties can be appealing. To find deals, sharing preferences with a real estate agent is common, but rural agencies may not update websites regularly. Directly contacting agents and negotiating prices, especially for homes below 2 million yen, can be fruitful. Yamamoto shares personal success negotiating a property priced over 2 million yen for half the cost. Japanese law limits brokerage fees, varying based on property value, and this information is crucial for potential buyers.

Renovation of the Former Residence of Zhang Taiyan by Tsing-Tien Making

"Renovation is not simply about blending into the old. Instead, it involves the fusion of the old and the new to imbue this long-standing house a new language, from design to functionality and the experience it offers to visitors. We hope the story of Zhang Taiyan and his house do not stop in that specific time period but to continue, with the new memory and language, to carry forward."

Ningbo Gulin Vocational High School by ARCHIS Design Studio

The open framework of the design invites multi-authored narratives in the creation of an interactive and immersive campus. Students are the directors of their own daily encounters and plot developments on campus, devising their narratives through choosing different paths to take. Instead of imposing a preconceived coherence, the design embraces multi-authorship in the daily use of the school to stimulate the improvisational, the indeterminate, and the multiplicity of meanings.
