    Thumbs up New japanese architecture

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - -



    Rooftecture S



    ...


    Architect : Shuhei Endo
    Location: Shioya Tarumi-ku Kobe, Hyogo-Pref., Japan
    Consultants: Masashi Ooji, Design-Structure Laboratory
    Project year: 2005
    Principal use: House
    Site Area: 130 sqm
    Constructed Area: 65.7 sqm
    Photographs: Shuhei Endo




    A small residence for a couple, clinging onto a steep inclination that faces Setonaikai(Inland Sea) and bordered by a Y-intersection at the base of a hill, in a relatively old residential zone developed in tiered platforms. Site has an elongated triangular form, 20m long east-west and 1.5m to 4.0m deep. A retaining wall of wedge shaped stones standing in the back, facing north. Height is difference between the ground and the northern approach range from 5m to 8m.




    The main subject theme of this house has been about the archaic problem involving slopes and architecture. Maximizing the existing qualities that are the stone retaining wall in the back and the improved ground - that is, an extension of environmental attributes by means of reciprocal occupation between the slope and the architecture that is born when artificial elements are newly added. Such architectural additions consist of an artificial ground supported by a set of 5 piles and the roof and walls that enclose the space.


    The development of roof/wall is a rectangular sheet of metal shingle board. It maintains the logical extensity pertaining to the slope and the triangular land by folding and tilting. States of liberation and closure created though the interaction with the slope define this house’s spatial quality.

    SHELL HOUSE


    Architects: Kotaro Ide / ARTechnic architects
    Location: Kitasaku, Nagano, Japan
    Assistants: Moriyuki Fujihara, Ruri Mitsuyasu, Takashi Mototani (former member), Kenyu Fujii
    Collaborator: Manami Ide (designer of customized metal work)
    Structural Engineer: Naomi Kitayama / NAO
    Mechanical engineer: Hiroshi Nakayama / TNA
    Electrical Engineer: Jyunetsu Satou / EPS
    Contractor: Kenji Kusunoki / GIKAKU
    Site Area: 1,711 sqm
    Constructed Area: 329 sqm
    Construction year: 2008
    Photographs: Nacasa & Partners Inc.

    A large shell shaped structure finds itself in the middle of the woods. It is hard to determine what exactly the structure is, and unlike the surrounding caves and rocks, it clearly is not a part of nature - nor is it a ruin. A frame, a shape, made at a completely different place for a completely different purpose. Within this shell shaped structure will one find floors constructed, wall separating spaces, and rooms furnished. The scenery conjures a SF film-like image, in which locals inhabit over an abandoned spacecraft. With time, trees start to grow encircling the spacecraft, harmonizing it into the landscape.

    Desiring a place that will be occupied frequently over many years and yet at the same time be in sync with nature, we came up with the aforementioned scenery of a large shell structure floating above ground.




    Being in sync with nature isn’t about yielding to nature - it’s about coexistence. The existence of the structure depends on its power to endure nature. By isolating living space from the wilderness, and upgrading its quality as a shelter, the house will be protected from nature and will provide a comfortable environment. With this, the house will be taken care of and used frequently and continuously.
    Specifically in cases of villas, frequent use is what leads it to blend in with its surroundings.




    The regions’ low temperatures and high humidity level makes for a harsh climate. As a result, many houses that take on traditional structures are decaying. Is it in sync with nature? Perhaps. But the whole idea of comfort seems to be put into question. Consequently, large numbers of villas have not been in use for many years bringing them down to further dilapidation. Despite the general avoidance of concrete material in the region, its usage and the lifting structure have helped the villa protect itself from the humidity.
