Appreciation towards Sasaki Architecture + Atelier O for providing the following description:

公寓位于东京音羽区,紧邻护国寺。该寺庙作为将军朝拜之地,始建于江户时代(1603-1868)。尽管该地位于城市中心,它始终保留着古代的痕迹。

为避免狭道两侧公寓产生直接的对视,设计师将这栋公寓的开窗稍向侧边移位。建筑有巨大的开窗,环绕窗口的外立面展现出略微的倾斜,形如窗框,这种窗户的设计形式让室内享受阳光和微风的同时,也令沉重的混凝土表皮展现出轻盈的体态。除此之外,部分倾斜的建筑表面由热镀锌钢板覆盖,而与室外窗户形状处于同样位置的室内部分,由木质框架装饰,与建筑外表皮形状相近,展现出由内到外的连接性。

▼建筑外貌,view of the building

This apartment building is in the Otowa district of Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward, very close to Gokokuji temple, which was established in the Edo era (1603-1868) as a place of prayer for members of the shogunate. Although the neighborhood is located in the city center, it retains traces of that older era.

In order to avoid direct lines of sight between the apartment building and the residents of the single-family homes lining the other side of the narrow road on which it sits, the windows are shifted slightly off-center. This arrangement of windows brings breezes and natural light into the building while also giving the heavy concrete a lighter feeling. The windows appear sufficiently large from inside, but the exterior surface surrounding each one slopes in at an angle, creating a recessed “frame” that heightens the impression of lightness. In addition, some of the sloped surfaces are covered with hot-dip galvanized steel sheets, while on the interior side, wooden frame-like shelf placed in the same position echo the rectangular shape of the recessed frames. This creates a loose connection between interior and exterior.

单元房的内部抛弃一切不必要的细节修饰,由纯白的墙壁和朴素的混凝土打造。这种探寻极简公寓设计的方式,意在将生活从繁琐的物质组成元素中脱离出来。设计师考虑到公寓的必要功能空间,将房间以自由和高效的方式加以利用。比如,环绕存储空间的独立墙壁可以转换成紧凑的办公区,而厨房的混凝土橱柜也可作为餐桌使用。

The interiors of the units are composed entirely of white walls and unadorned concrete. All unnecessary elements have been eliminated from the simple details and style. This minimalist design, which seeks the simplest possible form for an apartment building, is intended to link to a lifestyle unburdened by superfluous material possessions. We envision the minimal elements of the apartment enabling a freer lifestyle for its residents. For example, the storage space enclosed only by freestanding walls can also become a compact office, while the spacious concrete kitchen counter can serve as a desk.

窗户和木质框架对矩形形状的利用展现的淋漓尽致。当窗口从水平或垂直的当代设计手法中脱离出来时,矩形便成为最纯粹,最原始的建筑开口形式。

The windows and wooden frame-like shelf in this building make abundant use of squares. Once we have freed ourselves from convention of modern design that dictates either a horizontal or a vertical window, squares may be the purest and most primitive shape for these openings.
