Kazuhiro Kojima

This is Kojima’s first work.
The site is 57 tsubos interspersed with national roads and rivers outside Osaka. It is a long and slender site of 33m x 3.5 to 8m. It is a small single-person rental apartment of 18 units with a floor area of about 110 tsubo.
In order to confront the surrounding atmosphere and the surrounding atmosphere with a single architecture, the architecture is segmented as much as possible, and the architecture itself is handled like the accumulation of fragments of a city, or like a townscape or a settlement.
The scale of 18 units would have been the number that formed a village enough at one time. We introduced the density of various devices, complexity, and designs that one village actually had. I made it as thing as possible by arranging a lot of scenes without connecting the connection of the irregular form forcibly. The key plane reference line for that was carefully set so that the scale changes discontinuously. It was designed so that the place of each room was discovered between the walls that had existed before the wall was placed from necessity.
There is a sense that architecture wants to exist apart from .
