Environment into Life with Rhythm

Environment into Life with Rhythm

This house is located at the narrow, hilly site in quiet residential area where had been segmented a large residential property into slight small land.

The environment is significantly rich such as the large park across the narrow passage at the south and the green hill at the north. In spite of the nature rich environment, the buildings in this residential area are not open to the exterior in order to keep their privacy. Therefore, we started from the exploration of how we combine the both ideas of keeping privacy and bringing the surroundings into the inside, and at the result, the size and hight of windows on each floor were operated for avoiding the eyes from the main road while having particular landscape views from inside.

In addition, the family has three small children and the house need to be designed to give communication through evey floor.The large open staircase in the center of this house we introduced connects entrance, kid’s space, kitchen, dining room and living room, and the scale of this atrium seems to be too huge for housing, however, the vertical space like courtyard brings unique bodily experience and communication.
Another unique figure of this architecture is the roof. The distinctive V-shaped roof covers this building from the south to the north and control people’s perspective from inside to outside and simultaneously can introduce various sceneries on the each floor. The family will find the comfortable places in this house corresponding to changeable environment.

We essentially consider the unique relationship between the resident and the place because we believe the elements could form the spatial volume, direction, and movement. Our architecture harmonizes the spatial context and life with “rhythm”, which includes viewing, lights, bodily movements, and verbal communication. These rhythms are resonated and turned into one harmony of life. In this project, we installed the core stare case and the big roof over the building to activate the “rhythm” and hope the residents enjoy their harmonized joyful life in this house.
