Gallery in Kiyosato Villa with Exhibition Space by Satoshi Okada architects

Home > Winners > #50050


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gallery in Kiyosato

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Villa with Exhibition Space

INSPIRATION:
Architecture needs to mould itself onto fluctuating social demands, such as the present demographic trends and the decrease of population Japan as elsewhere in the world. The architect is thus inspired to pursue flexibility through innovative structural systems, like the Container Structure System here applied: this is our response to dynamic society of nowadays.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A newly conceived structural system, named Container Structure System, bears the loads of the gallery: it consists of a ship-shaped core in which small spaces encased. This monocoque is realized with inexpensive timber members and veneer panels and assembled with a software. The outcome is a solid and easily expandable shell. Due to its intrinsic dynamism, this system has been further applied in a later project (Agri-Community Center in Shiga) and praised with several prizes and publications.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The first imagery came from the landscape of Kiyosato: the site is located in a coniferous forest, densely vegetated, whose trees stripe and fragment the view in every direction. The building shall therefore disappear in this wood; the structure, consistently developed, is generated by few curves, interlocked and manipulated into a ship-shaped shell. All spaces are inserted into the main core and create an intricate sequence of fragmented views: every turning point is transparent as to offer a glance of the otherwise concealed forest.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Location: Kiyosato, Japan; Design: 2005 Completion: 2006

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Load bearing technology: Container Structure System, i.e. a timber shell, slender as a long ship, hosts all the spaces of the gallery. Materials: local wood is here the preeminent material, juxtaposed to more precious inserts.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
site area: 1115 square-meters building area: 181 square-meters total floor area: 207 square-meters

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Gallery belongs to an ongoing research thread focused on Intensity of Architecture. Within the frame of such observation, the design is conceived to stimulate sensual perception: physical interaction and experiences between visitors and building thus overcome cultural and geographical barriers, triggering intuition above rational comprehension. Furthermore the Gallery embodies the application of a structural research that aims to improve future flexibility and efficiency in every construction.

CHALLENGE:
Because of its innovative structural features, the design has been validated through multiple tests and full-scale mock ups held in the governmental research center until it eventually complied with the strict safety rules for earthquakes required by the Japanese building law. The Container Structure System thus conceived ensures high reliability while respecting and enhancing the architectural concept that originates the Gallery.
