Floating site on the river

This site, where is floating on river and confronted the graceful landscape, was strongly recognized to me as a part of nature, from the first time that I met.

From then, I started to visualize “the architectural nature” as a place of recreation.

Form of site = Form of architecture = Maximum efficiency of landuse

While maximizing the efficiency of landuse, the leaner concrete mass, that cherishes the courtyard where is filled with the water and the greenery, was laid out on this site along the irregular formed site line.

site plan

This courtyard is “The architectural nature” and a central recreation space as extended river that communicate the river and architecture.

Continuous circulation of stepped roof garden – Creation of new green land in this site

The whole part of the step typed roofs, where is moving upward with various level, are directly linked to the bed rooms in upper floor.
Finally, this stepped roof gardens are linked to both sides of the inner court at where swimming pool is.

The inner court where is filled with the water and flower and fruit, and the whole of the roof gardens are circulated as the continuous landscape place and that is the place as “architectural nature” in concept.

Sucking in dynamic-surrounding landscape

Naturally, all of the rooms inside this site-shaped-mass are laid toward the picturesque landscape to enjoy the graceful scenery surrounded this site.

The huge panoramic view framed with sloped ceiling line that is composed with the lines of stepped roof gardens and the bottom line of the inner court, is the major impression of inner space of this house.

Promenade inner space of skipfloor made the promenade roofgarden-space of skipfloor.

Skip floor plan of inside of this house produced various dramatic spaces.

Floating boxes with bamboo garden – Dynamic, unrealistic sequence of interior space.

As “The architectural nature”, floating white polyhedral masses that have the built-in bamboo gardens, produced the various stories of vertical space

Landscape architecture – Harmonizing with the surrounding landscape

The shape of the mountain type composed of irregular polygonal shaped concrete mass and metal mesh was designed to harmonize with the context as “the architectural mountain”.

There was the intention to be a part of the surrounding context that consisted of the river and the mountain.

Architectural Island – Island House

As a result, this house was to be “The island house” as an “architectural island”.
