▼棚屋住宅外观,exterior view of the hut-like house

This building is a hut-like house on the outskirts of Aichi Prefecture. The area around the building is a peaceful place with fields and bamboo forests. The planned site has two main houses, and a study hut and an agricultural equipment shed attached to them. Several decades ago, there was a livestock hut. There, two or three generations live on a single site with multiple buildings. And they live in a way that keeps building renewed in line with their current life, as they thought of on the spot. A client working as an electrician requested a room such as a study room and dining kitchen, a storage space for materials, a refreshing space with colleagues at work, and a place where local people gather in the event of a disaster. This plan is like adding a life with a larger society to a main house that is used privately. There is a need for non-family members to gather comfortably and to have a larger scale of storage than residential furniture. So I planned a solarium next to the owner’s room, as large as the budget allowed, using a combination of rough and simple materials.

具体而言,建筑师使用由薄钢材料制成的预镀方形管打造出阳光房的柱网结构框架。这种框架一方面具有灵活性,人们可以根据自己的需要在其间自由增加搁板;另一方面也具有足够的坚固性,因此结构上就不再需要增加额外的横向加固构件。建筑师采用未经粉刷的雪松板作为基础的外围护材料,并将其固定在中间梁上。同时为了抵抗地震力,建筑师用一系列金属网代替了传统建筑中的斜撑结构。考虑到室内的采光需求, 建筑师并不刻意设置窗户,而是在金属网的外侧覆上了一层半透明的聚碳酸酯表皮。除此之外,这个充满阳光的空间的入口处还安装着一个百叶构件,当百叶被拉上去的时候,阳光房就变成了一个半室外空间。阳光房并不设置隔热层,尽可能地与自然环境相通;而其旁边的私人住所则最大限度地减少空气流通,并设置性能良好的保温隔热层和空调系统。建筑师将注意力放在了建筑整体的大尺度上,而不是纠结于那些受控于设备的小空间的布局。

Specifically, the structural frame is a pre-plated square pipe (□ -50 × 50 × 2.3) as an assembly pillar, and shelves can be added freely between the pillars. Since the pillar is a thin plate material that can be screwed, secondary members such as furring strips can be eliminated. The base material of the exterior material is a cedar roofing board that is screwed to the intermediate beam and used in the interior without painting. This building uses wire mesh instead of braces as a earthquake-resistant element. The opening for lighting is made clear by hooking polycarbonate onto this wire mesh without using a sash. The sunroom has a shutter at the entrance, and when it is opened, the room changes to semi-outdoor. I planned that the solarium don’t have insulation. On the other hand, I planned the room to keep the air volume as small as possible , and to install insulation and air conditioning. I planned the building as large as possible instead of making the room controlled by the equipment smaller.

I think that the life of a resident is not completed in one house (or one function-defined room), but rather it can become rich by enriching its surroundings. The building is like a hut below a house. However, I think that the life through the hut can create more expanse and richness than conventional houses.
