OKNO BLOG a creative resource

Okno Studio Blog is collection of images (graphic, packaging, photography, product, industrial, advertising, printing, posters, webdesign, branding, illustration, digital art, t-shirt art, art, painting etc) that influence me and the work that I do.


Weekend House Alley is a small beach development designed as a shared beach house for surfers. Instead of making one new outsized structure, architect Manabu Chiba has cut the building into separate triangular volumes by means of seven alleyways. As a result, he has kept the charm of the small-scale residential neighbourhood with a mix of 6 shops, a restaurant and 13 apartments, all bringing life to the seafront of Kamakura Beach after surfing hours. Residents and passers-by have 24 hour access to the new public alleys, and there are views to the stunning beach, ocean and mountains in all directions.
