層之家 / House F

Urbanwasabi

Site

‘House F’ located in a lively downtown alley, surrounded by densely populated residential area in Tainan, a cultural city in southern Taiwan. This site oriented north-south direction, while the building gets west exposure under tropical afternoon sun as a challenge, it also has a magnificent view of urban greenery and wide open view to the city as an advantage.


基地

層之家位於台灣台南熱鬧市區的巷弄之中,四周是一個高密度的住宅區。建築座向為南北向,主要側立面具有強烈西曬缺點,卻同時有面對許多植物景觀與開闊視野的潛在優勢。

This building layout represented a stereotypical challenge of traditional single-family residence in Taiwan, on the ground floor functional staircase dominated the core of interior and caused issues on ventilation, lighting and disconnection between spaces.With this challenge in mind, the team reprogrammed interior layout and enabled dwellers to flow though various sequential spaces and connected this living experience to surrounding urban fabric. This continuum formed a new sequential sense of dimension and experience of home.


另一方面其內部空間為典型的獨棟住宅配置,中間垂直樓梯組織並分隔前後,造成空間單調以及通風、採光不良,是典型台灣住宅必須面對的挑戰。所以我們不斷思考如何在緊密的都市涵構之中,讓建築與外部的都市環境有進一步連結關係,同時讓內部空間可以有連續與不同變化的空間感,讓居住者擁有良好的生活與空間品質。


Concept_ Intertwined layers and partitions

During the process of renovation, we redefined concept of a wall. Derived from the idea of separating in and out, we used different materials or shapes as the medium/walls between spaces to create variations of depth and layers in space.


空間概念 _ 在間隔中環繞的層

在新舊建築的結合中,重新界定牆的概念,改變原本建築純粹以牆分隔內外的想法,我們讓牆有不同材質與形式作為界面,在空間中建構豐富的層次,使居住在裡面的人重新連結環境中的各種事物與狀態。

Aperture defined by these medium/walls leads each circulation movement though levels of transparencies, sometimes concrete, glass or sometimes even as an aperture on floor that guides dweller to explore this place with uninterrupted flow. These circulation arrangements not only connected each unique space to another, but also allowed dwellers to associate their environment to emotional state with every turn and view.

With purposefully intertwined program spaces like living room, kitchen, sundeck or attic, each dweller can either share or spare moments on their own. Here, “layer” to us, is a process of keep connecting and transforming among human, space and environment.


無論是混凝土牆、玻璃或者樓板,都藉由開口方式與不同程度的穿透性,做出多向度的連結,牆或著玻璃屏隔作為流動的一種導引,也隨著界面的角度、正面或反面,讓在不同位置的空間都具有獨特性格,因此家人之間變得有更多的互動與連結,同時許多公共空間,如客廳、廚房、陽台、閣樓,都有機會成為屬於這家人聚會的獨特空間。

Air

Introducing breath of fresh air is one important task. After renovation, circulation of air flow has been significantly improved by reorganizing bath, sundeck and organic shaped rooms. The new layout allows each room to have ventilation windows for natural breeze from horizontal direction; the apertures between floors, also increases vertical aero dynamic and effectively refreshes air flow within the building.


空氣

新舊建築結合之後,空間關係藉由浴室、陽台、有機形的房間規畫重新結合,這樣的配置型態讓每個房間都有可以對流的開口設置,這個部份解決了原建築各房間在關門後通風品質不良的問題,垂直動線則與閣樓的通風系統,形成本棟建築的煙囪效應,讓空氣可以藉由自然換氣排熱並且讓居住空間有適當的內部氣流。


Light

Additional two meters of space set a sequential setback from sundeck, staircase and a framing wall at the western facade, this is build to resolve the problem of western exposure under tropical afternoon sun. This generous sundeck not only harvests sun and dries clothes effectively, but also lighten up the bathroom while keeping privacy and reduces humidity. It also made this meridional house to catch light from west side, turning the disadvantage of the western exposure as an advantage to improve lighting condition and microclimate of this building.


光線

西向立面後方的2米深的空間,藉由與生活中時間性不同活動的安排,形成了一個回應西向陽光的良好空間,一方面妥善利用西曬的日光增加曬衣的效率,也讓浴室的空間品質明亮且易於保持乾燥;同時也讓南向的建築室內空間,藉由西面採光得到充足的光線,讓一般視為缺點的西曬成為幫助提高這棟建築物內光線與微氣候的重要元素。

都市山葵 / URBANWASABI一複合字,經常介於人造與自然,是建築也如同植物的抽象具象之間,期待在環境之中的創作,不斷以新的空間體驗為主題,創造出有如山葵之於日本料理的絕妙靈魂佐味,令人回味無窮的建築。

Urbanwasabi Studio Information

Urbanwasabi was established by Fang Wei in 2011. Fan Wei graduated from the graduate School of Architecture of Tunghai University, before starting Urbanwasabi he also had studied and worked in C+A-Coelacanth and Associates and Sou Fujimoto Architects in Tokyo.

The compound word “URBANWASABI” shows the relation between artefacts and nature, and the relation between architecture and plants. We keep creating new space experiences, trying to create architecture that gives people lingering aftertaste, just like the soulfulspirit of wasabi in Japanese food.
