Possible inclusion (Kudan House)

edit

This gem in Tokyo seems like a good candidate for inclusion. Fascinating history and lovely example of the style. (Also, we have a redirect from Kudan House to The Kudan, which is a mistake – they are two different buildings.) -- Cl3phact0 (talk) 16:00, 5 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
PS: (See wikidata:Q125792289)

Cl3phact0 The house seems to have reopened and possibly been renamed in 2018. It may not be the only Kudan House in Tokyo. TSventon (talk) 18:11, 5 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Yes, it looks like it was renovated and renamed "Kudan House" (or maybe "kudan house"). Previously is was the "Yamaguchi Mankichi House" (or some permutation of that name). Apparently it is used for events and exhibitions now. The website shows some nice archival material (architectural drawings and whatnot).
The Philippine Ambassador's residence (called The Kudan) seems to have been a childhood home of Yoko Ono, which may be of interest to some readers. Again, not the same building. The redirect looks like a mistake.

Cl3phact0 the 2015 Tatler article calls the Philippine Ambassador's residence "Kudan House" five times, so the redirect makes sense at the moment as kudan.house does not currently have an article. TSventon (talk) 20:43, 5 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Fair enough. (I'm here to propose a new article. The redirect was a secondary matter.) Cheers, Cl3phact0 (talk) 20:50, 5 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Cl3phact0 I don't think the two references I have seen establish notability as they could be based on press releases. It is fairly likely that there is more coverage in Japanese, but I wouldn't know where to start. It would be helpful to add a Japanese name (the website seems to use "kudan house" in Japanese) and a link to the heritage listing to Wikidata, perhaps someone at Reference Desk Humanities or Language could help.

The "Related Sites" section of this site (in Japanese) contains links that may help establish WP:N (in particular, see Cultural Heritage and a Japanese edition of NYT Style magazine). -- Cl3phact0 (talk) 09:52, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I have recently nominated the article Listed buildings in Sleaford for consideration as a Featured List candidate. Any comments at the nomination page would be gratefully received. Thanks, --Noswall59 (talk) 16:30, 2 June 2024 (UTC).Reply

And a very impressive list it is. I would urge interested editors to take a look. KJP1 (talk) 05:52, 7 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

KieranTimberlake History draft feedback

edit

Hello. I'm Ivy, an employee at KieranTimberlake, and I've posted a new draft of the History section to the article's Talk page in an attempt to improve the page with better sourcing. I've disclosed my COI on my user page for full transparency: user:IvyKieranTimberlake.

The article has had a flag for quite some time now, and there exists tons of notable coverage that is not represented in the article as it exists now. If any editors are interested in evaluating this request, please check it out here: Talk:KieranTimberlake#History. Thank you! IvyKieranTimberlake (talk) 19:23, 7 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
