Apunctuated “hole” becomes a garden.House and atelier with gardens that brings light and air inside.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe project site is a narrow strip with 9m width facing the street and 26m deep. There we first established a “shell” of maximum volume within the height limitations and setback guidelines. Then we punctuated “holes” to desirable places of the “shell” volume where it was agreed suitable to incorporate natural light and wind.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeAt the deep southernmost part of the site, there is a 7m tall oak tree as the house’s symbol tree. We have planted the tree in prior to the foundation work since it would be impossible to reach the deepest area of the site after the structure of the house is erected. We could say that the oak tree was watching over the house since the start the construction.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeInside the “hole”, we created garden with plants that relates to its adjacent room; a “sunken garden” at the basement, an “acorn garden” on the ground floor and “dining garden” on the second floor. By “breaking” the top of the shell, we placed a “sky garden” at the rooftop. All the dispersed gardens are linked with an exterior stairway.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe “shell” incorporates the exterior insulation method. Thus, the heat capacity of the concrete wall enables a moderate change in interior temperature. Also, by exposing both exterior and interior concrete walls, it forms a sense of continuity throughout the house. The box culvert structure system was applied to maintain such sense of continuity and eliminates partition walls perpendicular to the tunnel space. In the end, a “strong” but also “embracing” concrete structure was achievedSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeProject gallerySee allShow lessSky Cave House & Clinic / IKAWAYA ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBangkok Prep II Block D / Plan ArchitectSelected Projects Share Concrete Shell House / IKAWAYA ArchitectsSave this projectSaveConcrete Shell House / IKAWAYA Architects “COPY” Architects: IKAWAYA Architects Area Area of this architecture project 2020 Japan ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeIKAWAYA ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoOn FacebookJapanPublished on January 14, 2021Cite: “Concrete Shell House / IKAWAYA Architects” 13 Jan 2021.
