■ Comprehensive Grand Prix
“Two-story house (one-story)”｜Morita Sougei Co., Ltd.
Commentary by the selection committee chairman (Manjo Shimahara / Director of LIFULL HOME’S Research Institute)
This work is an orthodox, strong-style renovation that takes full advantage of the power of renovation to address today’s social issues. The material that was the subject of the renovation was the
47-year-old vacant house of my parents. Needless to say, this is the core of the problem of vacant houses, which is becoming a serious problem nationwide. Renovating a two-story building into a one-story building in the manner of Daruma-otoshi, and reducing the floor space by half, responds to demographic changes such as a reduction in the number of people living together per household and an aging
population. I have a feeling that it will be one of the streams of renovation. This is because one-story houses are currently a hidden boom. In the newly built detached housing market, the number of single-story construction starts has doubled over the past 10 years, and according to the construction start statistics for fiscal 2021, the proportion of newly built detached housing is about 13%, and if limited to major house builders, it is about 20%. has reached One-storied house is also selected as the front head in “LIFULL HOME’S Sumai no Hit Word Ranking 2022”.
The reason why I called this work orthodox strong style is because I feel the sincere work that is backed by solid technical skills. For example, we first clarified the areas that should be repaired through inspections and seismic diagnosis, and then started planning after considering both reconstruction and renovation plans. Furthermore, in the renovation, performance improvement was achieved at a high level. Specifically, we ensured earthquake resistance by downsizing and weight reduction (if desired, we would like to aim for an earthquake resistance grade of 3), and achieved a Ua value of 0.44 for insulation performance, which exceeds the local ZEH standard. As a result, it has been certified as a long-term excellent housing, and the subsidy contributes to reducing the burden on the owner. And although the exterior and interior space have changed dramatically, the design is skillful in preserving the memories of my beloved family home by incorporating the old pillars as a design into the modern space. The deep eaves at the large opening facing the garden on the south side block the sun in the summer while creating the calm atmosphere of an elegant villa. It was a work suitable for the commemorative 10th anniversary General Grand Prix as one of the goals of detached house renovation that can be considered as of 2022. This is the first Grand Prix award for Morita Sogei.

“inherit from TAISHO ~Old private house x antique~”｜Fukuda Housing Co., Ltd. [Image 2
Commentary by the judges (Yoichi Ikemoto, editor-in-chief of SUUMO) In the 5 million yen or less category, the presence of clients who have a strong commitment to interior design is significant. The mid-century elements of the client, who loves antiques, are combined with the old private house. It reminded me of Kartell’s Toyama shop in Higashiiwase-cho, Toyama. It was a shock to see the interior of the town where old folk houses were lined up, suddenly with Italian furniture with cutting-edge design. This project uses wooden sashes, and the frames are painted orange, creating an expectation that “there’s something going on.”
In this property, hardware measures such as reinforcement of the foundation, addition of heat insulation materials, introduction of gas, etc. are taken, the corridor part is incorporated into the living room, and the kitchen is also attached to the wall to secure a spacious area that is easy to use. Architecture is said to be “strength, utility, and beauty.” Renovation’s professional approach is to combine “strength” and “use” within a fixed cost while incorporating the owner’s sense of “beauty.” This work is a partially renovated Taisho architecture that perfectly balances strength, utility, and beauty.

“Live in the city center with 5 birds + 1 person” | NENGO Co., Ltd. [Image 3
Commentary by the judges (Kazumasa Sashide/Editor-in-Chief Sotokoto) In today’s world, when the forms and ways of family are changing in various ways, it is becoming more natural to consider not only humans but also pets (companion animals) who live with us as members of the family. This place, including the location, has been well thought out for its loving structure and structure. Even dogs and cats have different lifestyles. Birds are even more so, including their movements in the air. What this space has achieved through renovation is probably an environment in which people and birds are in a good mood for each other. This is truly a residence born from the perspective of diversity and well-being. Birds can play happily, in other words, it is fun with lots of tricks that make them feel the joy of living. The uniform wall color and the contrast of the birds also help to determine the flight status, health status and position of each bird. If birds are happy, people will be happy too. A
relationship like a mirror. You can feel the expansion of the possibilities of a tolerant society brought about by renovation. ■-10 million yen or more category-Grand Prize
“Ring on the Green A house surrounded by greenery with wind and light” | Louvis Co., Ltd.
Judge’s Commentary (Hisaki Tokushima / Specially Appointed Fellow, RoomClip House Culture Research Institute)
Proposals for layout and space usage that maximize the benefits of the eight openings that were not fully utilized. In addition, there are various ideas to eliminate the disadvantages of being on the second floor of a residential area in Tokyo (noise and proximity to the next building). The completed work, which not only eliminates the negative, but also incorporates the bold floor plan and the beauty of the design, is packed with the real pleasure of renovating a private residence. In particular, many judges admired the beauty of the lights that circled above the open kitchen. It will be one of the ideals for those who want to do a full renovation from now on.
■-Open Weight Category-Grand Prize
“Return the station square rotary to the hands of pedestrians – ‘Zama-niwa'” | Blue Studio Co., Ltd.
Commentary by the judges (Seiko Yakubo / Editor-in-chief of LIFULL HOME’S PRESS) Renovation of the Year 2015 Comprehensive Grand Prix “Hoshinotani housing complex”. The progressive attempt to open a dilapidated housing complex and site to the city and edit it as a place that connects people and people with the city was highly praised. In the following year, 2016, it won the first gold prize for the renovation of an apartment complex at the Good Design Award. Five years later, based on the concept of “taking the rotary in front of the station back into people’s hands,” the rotary at the east exit of Zama Station was re-edited as a “garden where people gather” rather than a mechanical place to pick up people. The place named “Zama-niwa” has been reborn as a place that creates connections between people and the city. It is a story that continues from the Hoshinotani housing complex, and it is a typical example of renovation that shows further expectations that “the editing of the city will continue.”

Selection Committee Chair General Comment
Banjo Shimabara / Director of LIFULL HOME’S Research Institute (LIFULL Co., Ltd.)
Renovation of the Year celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. This year, a memorable milestone, I would like to rejoice that the number of entries, which had decreased to 228 due to the delay in filming after moving in due to the corona crisis, has recovered to 90 companies and 260 works. It can be said that Japanese society is finally getting out of the corona disaster (the largest ever was 97 companies and 279 works in 2019, so it is not completely recovered yet).
However, the lack of an easy-to-understand topic like teleworking, which symbolizes the times, probably because the impact of the corona disaster has faded this year, posed difficulties for the final judging. While efforts to improve performance such as heat insulation and earthquake resistance have become commonplace in the past few years, it was difficult to find out what kind of work should be selected as the year of the year at the timing of the 10th
anniversary. After a lively discussion, it became a form of
competition on the essential power of renovation and the
attractiveness of the space created by it, which could be said to be a return to basics. In that sense, I think we were able to choose a work suitable for the 10th anniversary.
