The site is located in a residential area close to a train station and offers views of the elevated railway line.
A long, narrow site facing a winding one-way street
What was needed was a magnanimous space that allows you to sense the other family members, wherever they are.
Following the mortar wall along the approach to the entrance
To contrast the space ahead, the luminosity of the finishing has been reduced and the ceiling kept low in the entrance. Passing through it, a bright living space with a three-story atrium spreads before you.
The staircase has been arranged to encircle the large volume of the living room, with various rooms distributed with the volume at their centers.
The single air volume placed at the center of the family allows members to constantly sense each other’s presence and grants a feeling of security, and the circling stairs create a changing sequence for the gaze to follow, to bring about change in daily life.
The presence of stairs decorated with detailed designs gives a theatricality to the space and adds color to the stage of the everyday.
When you climb to the top of the stairs, you can enjoy views of trains going back and forth on the elevated railway line in front of you.
This view, which the children can see every day, will leave its mark on their hearts day by day, as the original landscape from their unchanging home.
Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.
No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
