Life in spiral / Hideaki Takayanagi

first_imgPhotographs:   Takumi OtaText description provided by the architects. The main concept is “A Spiral Porch in tokyo” -challenging to open (or close) the privacy to urban environment. The “Porch” was essential to traditional Japanese house, therefore it is one of the most nostalgic space for all. Recently in Tokyo(JPN), lands for build some architecture are very expensive. And therefore that made us give up to create the “porch”. Save this picture!©  Takumi OtaRecommended ProductsDoorsC.R.

Very narrow site forced to form 3-dimensional (spiral shaped) engawa structure. But this was a nice idea to create engawa outside of this ribbon. The ribbon makes shade and shadow in inside and outside. And each floor slabs, spirals, end roof are entirely made from steel plate T=4.5mm. So this house is very light weight to be supple for earthquake. No thick columns needed, all parts configure supple and strong mono-coque body.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Awards 2012ArticlesadAPT NYC Request for ProposalsArticles Share 2012 Houses Japan Area:  109 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Life in spiral / Hideaki TakayanagiSave this projectSaveLife in spiral / Hideaki Takayanagi Projects Save this picture!©  Takumi Ota+ 24 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/257583/life-in-spiral-hideaki-takayanagi Clipboard CopyHouses•Japan Year:  “COPY” ArchDaily Photographs Life in spiral / Hideaki Takayanagi Architects: Hideaki Takayanagi Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/257583/life-in-spiral-hideaki-takayanagi Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHideaki TakayanagiOfficeFollowProductGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on July 27, 2012Cite: “Life in spiral / Hideaki Takayanagi” 27 Jul 2012.
