Ho-House Residential Building by Katsufumi Kubota

Home > Winners > #117265


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ho-House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Building

INSPIRATION:
Architecture is a vessel that carves out a tiny space in an infinitely expanding universe. For the heart to truly grasp that the inner space is also part of the universe, it's essential that life dwells in architecture. The site is completely surrounded by various houses.However, the sky’s vastness and closeness were overwhelming, and the clear blue sky shook my heart.Tasked with assessing the relationship between nature and the mind and engaging the sky, I am to create an architecture in here.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The space, created by folding white, thin slabs that have lost their mass and texture, shifts the axis of sensory interpretation from figurative to abstract and deepens our understanding of formless events. The inside-our-side continuity facilitated by the building, and the abstract phenomena that result from its relationship with nature, make us aware that the basis of both is the same and shorten the distance between the two at once, merging them into one.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Behind the parking space is a courtyard terrace, creating a private space that makes you forget about the densely populated residential areas. The terrace is a harmonious presence that connects the living room, dining room, bathroom, and children's room.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Design from 2016 to 2017 Construction from 2017 to 2020. Location: Takarazuka city,Hyogo,Japan

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Ho-House is a house requested in a crowded residential area, and the challenge was how to create a space to release the mind.

CHALLENGE:
The origin of Ho-House is to cut a part of a piece of paper and fold it. Many technologies were required, such as the technology to cut the tip of the slab to make the slab that becomes thicker in the structure look thinner, and the sash hardware that was originally manufactured to make it look more seamless.
