开放式计划更新： 在东京的郊区，这个住宅发现自己处于乡村之中，周围是田地和散落的建筑。场地面积近300平方米，对于一个小型住宅来说绰绰有余。 当我第一次参观这个场地时，我脑海中立即出现的想法是，一个开放式的单层住宅会很适合这个环境。
Open-Plan Updated: In the outskirts of Tokyo, this residence finds itself in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by fields and buildings scattered around. The site is almost 300 sq.m., more than sufficient for a small residence. The immediate thought that came into my mind, when I visited the site for the first time, was that an open-plan, one-story house would be good for this environment.
Of course, the surrounding environment will go through urbanization and rapid changes. With this future image in mind, I figured the contradicting style of a half open-plan could work for this haphazard countryside on the outskirts of Tokyo. The outer circle of the semi-transparent metal wall will partially obstruct the view from outside and the inner walls of transparent glass, with an outdoor space in between, which is hardly a garden, will serve as a “buffer” to adapt to the future changes in the surroundings: these elements formed my concept of an open-plan architecture which is wrapped in outer layers of, so-called, double-skin.
从结构上看，它是一个以木质椽子为主要结构材料的木质结构。工厂生产的、现成的材料被用于所有其他部分、室外平台和墙壁，以确保作为一个建筑的功能。同时，我的目的是通过 “温暖 “的木质结构和 “凉爽 “的工业产品的对比来创造一个室内 “风景”。
Structure-wise, it is a wooden structure with wooden rafters as the main structural material. Factory-produced, readymade materials were used for all other parts, outdoor deck, and walls, to secure functionality as a building. At the same time, I aimed at creating an interior “scenery” by contrasting the “warm” wooden structure with the “cool” industrial products.
同时，这些想法让我想起了一个特殊的场景。那是理查德-诺伊特拉1937年完成的 “斯特拉斯莫尔公寓 “的照片。而这不是建筑本身，而是当时洛杉矶的背景风景。 这座建筑位于韦斯特伍德。背景中的西木区与现在的绿意盎然的地方完全不同。我很震惊地看到它就像一个沙漠，只有灌木在这里和那里生长。
Simultaneously, these thoughts reminded me of a particular scene. It was the photo of Richard Neutra’s “Strathmore Apartment” completed in 1937. And it was not the architecture itself but the background scenery of Los Angeles at that time. This building is located in Westwood. The Westwood area in the background was nothing like the green, lush place that exists now. I was shocked to see it was just like a desert with only shrubs gown here and there.
我还记得，现在的洛杉矶充满了绿色和树木，实际上是人工创造的自然，这要归功于从附近的州连接起来的人工水道。迅速变化的环境，也就是说，洛杉矶的人造风景，使这群被称为 “案例研究房屋 “的开放式单层房屋从20世纪50年代开始建造。通过这个项目，我梦想在21世纪设计一个东京版的案例研究住宅，设计一个可以在东京郊区建造的开放式单层住宅。
Also, I remembered that present-day Los Angeles full of greenery and trees is, in fact, artificially created nature, thanks to the man-made waterways connected from the nearby State. The rapidly changing environment, that is to say, the man-made scenery of Los Angeles allowed the group of open-plan, one-story houses called “Case Study Houses” to be built from the 1950s on. With this project, I dreamed of a Tokyo version of the Case Study House of the 21st Century by designing an open-plan, one-story house that was possible to build on the outskirts of Tokyo.
