神栖の家

House I

The design image is interaction between inner spaces and outer spaces. The outer space inserts into the architecture, so that light and wind brought from the outer space will go into the inner space. Inner space and outer space would integrate, and Nature and architecture would blend with each other.

To realize the concept of ‘Box of Light’, the intention is to design the terrace like floating in the space. Using LVL woods as beams and let them stacked with laminated wood beams, and placing the core of structure in the 1st floor with many columns in the spaces of lavatories and storages, simple spaces with voids come into being.

There are three voids through which various lights and shadows will go into the spaces and people feel the transition of light and shadow. From the living rooms and rooms around the terrace, one would feel light and wind. The narrow terrace is a private space which functions as an outside living room. In the living room which is sandwiched by two terraces, people always feel nature. Through two small voids which are architectural devices of light, strong or ambient light go through.

These light would express transitional beauty and embody the concept of ‘MA(Void)’ which is a Japanese traditional concept. At night, the outside void would function as a luminaire. This is an attempt to design light within the white space by making various inner voids and inserted outer voids.

 

建築に外部空間が貫入し、その外部空間からもたらされる光と風が内部空間に広がってゆき、内外の空間が一体化するイメージで設計しました。

親戚や昔からの友人達が大勢訪れ、楽しむことが出来る広い空間が望まれました。広いリビングをアウトドアリビングであるテラスの隣に配置し、内外の空間を緩やかにつなげる事を考えました。

リビングには大小3つの吹抜が配置され、2階の外部テラスや窓からもたらされる光によって、時々刻々変化する光と陰影をもたらし、各部屋には様々なシーンがあらわれ、生活にリズムを与えます。

リビングの一角にある畳の空間は坪庭に面し、レベルを少し上げることで、他の空間からゆるやかに分節すると同時に、下部を収納としています。建築に貫入するテラスは輝く「光の箱」となり、1階のリビングからは吹抜越しに切り取られた空をのぞむことが出来、内部空間に居ながらにして、外部空間を感じることが出来ます。

四季折々の光と風が、住宅の内部に広がってゆきます。
