DOUBLE OO '96

"White beams"

There is a small two-storied house which was built a half century ago.  And about 40 years ago, a wooden hut with a gable roof was extended on the terrace of the house.

The project was to make the hut on the terrace into an office & showroom.

The terrace had been extended without any plans for 40 years, and unplanned big and small frames, such as beams, pillars and bunches were running in the air.At first, I took it very negatively.  But when I looked at it from a different position, I realized that it could be a unique object.

After giving moderate reinforcement, I did a thorough space arrangement by covering all the surfaces, such as floors, walls and garrets with gray painted flooring materials in symmetry.

Now only the white painted frameworks run in the air inside of the shape of this gable roof hut. This is a garret office & showroom where only the history of the hut itself and the clothes come to the surface.

旧い小さな建物の2階テラス部分に40年程前増築された切妻造の木造小屋。この部分にショールームを作るプロジェクト。40年をかけ無計画に改修工事が繰り返され、内部にはその構造を担う大小の骨格が無計画に宙を走る。これらを唯一無二のオブジェクトと解釈し徹底して美しく現すこととした。適切な補強と断熱を施した上で、床・壁・屋根裏と全ての内面を灰色の板材でシンメトリーに埋め尽くし徹底した空間整理を行い、切妻型の空間にこの小屋の歴史そのものである白い骨格のみを浮かび上がらせた。外部とアプローチは、その殆どが既存の状態で修復と必要最小限のパーツを設えたのみである。
