House YK / Islands

House YK / Islands

This is a house for a family of four built in Chiba City,in a slender alley 4m wide and 40m deep.The thin wooden walls, 62mm thick and made of 2×4 inserted between structural plywood on both sides, were assembled by layering them and gradually opening the cracks. These cracks draw the light into the rooms, and it has a different expression depending on time, season, and weather, and as slits that guide sightlines from within the rooms to the exterior, they give rise to changes in the spaces. Inside are aligned several "Islands" that function as triggers for people to linger. Because the "Islands" and activities of people begin to flow. By means of stairs located in two places along this length, it is possible to wander around on the floor, suspended above the "islands", the bridge , and the terrace.

千葉市内の、間口4m、奥行き40mの路地のように細くて長い場所に建つ4人家族のための住宅。ツーバイ材を平使いとし、両方から構造用合板で挟むことで成立した、62mmとごく薄い木造の壁は、少しずつ隙間を空けて重なりながら建っている。その隙間は、時間や季節や、天候によって違う表情の光を室内へ導き、かつ室内からの視線を外へ導くスリットとして空間に移ろいを生み出している。その室内には、人々がとどまるきっかけを持ったいくつかの「しま/Islands」が並ぶ。「しま」と行為と移動を並列に置くことで人の活動が流れはじめる。そして、この細長い空間の2カ所にある階段によって、「しま」の上に架かる床、ブリッジ、テラスをぐるりと回遊できるようになっている。
