triplex




都内に建つ住宅。料理教室を営むオーナーにとって家は、家族と過ごす安らぎの場でありながら、様々な来客を招くもてなしの場である必要があった。そこで家の中心をダイニングキッチンとし、全ての空間が緩やかに繋がりながら独立性も保つよう半地下から3階までを半層ずつずらしながら積み重ねる空間構成とした。

中間階を無柱の大空間とし、また南北に立面全体を開く大開口を設けるなど、構造的な挑戦も随所に行った。こうして全ての階で南北に抜ける空間が生まれ、光や風・家族の笑い声など様々な内外環境が交わる場が家の中心となった。

建物は北西角地に建つ。北面をメインアプローチとし3層吹き抜けのポーチが門構えとなってダイナミックでありながら親密に来客を迎え入れる。これと対になる南側は室内の吹き抜けと大窓を介して緑あふれるテラスに繋がり、明るく開放的な外のような好対照を生み出している。





A house in Tokyo. For the owner, who runs a cooking school, the house needed to be a place of comfort to spend time with her family, but also a place of hospitality to invite various guests. The dining kitchen is at the heart of the house, and all the spaces are gently connected while maintaining their independence.

The middle floor is a wide-spanned column-less space, with large openings that open up the entire elevation on the north and the south, and other structural challenges were taken on throughout. In this way, a fluid space from north to south was created on all floors, and the center of the house became a place where various internal and external environments meet, such as light, wind, and the laughter.

The house stands on the northwest corner. The main approach is on the north side, and the three-story atrium porch serves as a gateway to welcome visitors in a dynamic yet intimate scale. In contrast, the south side of the house is connected to the green terrace through an interior atrium and large windows, creating a bright and open contrast to the outside.
