What was the brief?
In that corner, a narrow area with a frontage of about 4 m and a depth of 7 m, where adjacent buildings are approaching the boundary, is the planned site.The planned building was required to be a fire-resistant building due to site conditions. We had to provide a comfortable feeling in the narrow space.
What were the key challenges?
It was believed that the theme of this building was to design a way of living in a city that was comfortable, open, and transmitted to the outside while maintaining safety, because the owner wanted to make it a small but open house for people outside.
Even the site conditions were harsh, the owner's strong will to "still want to live here" became a small house with a wide-open door in the alley. We hope this door will be the door of hope that opens the way we live in cities.
What materials did you choose and why?
Considering workability and material delivery, including the fact that the front road is narrow, a traditional wooden construction method with a wooden fireproof structure using fireproof board clothing was adopted for the core of the building.
