Double Box

This apartment is located in the site next to “Forests of Grids”.

YDS Architects intends to make these two buildings blend in the existing city.The design of the overhung design that is one of the typical images of “Forests of Grids” provides common image between the two buildings.

Trees under the overhung volume enfolded by the building expresses symbiosis between nature and architecture.

The whole volume is made up by the two boxes shifted each other and piled up.These two housing would make a new scenery in this site, and it would activate the city.

 

「Forests of Grids」の隣の集合住宅です。

二棟で共に街並に溶け込み、風景の一つとなることを意図し、ボリュームが重なるデザインを共通のテーマとしました。

2つの建築に共通するデザインのキャンティしたボリュームは対となり、都市へはたらきかけます。ボリュームの下部には植栽を配置し、植栽を建築が包みこみ、周囲の都市と調和します。

2棟の集合住宅で、周辺の街に新たな一つの風景が生まれ、その佇まいが都市を活性化させます。
