New Residence in Osaka

Architect: Jun Murata / JAM

Location: Osaka, Japan

N strips Residence

It is all about the facade!

An interesting project based around a lightweight cedar screen applied to a facade of the building.

Basic text from the architect:

DESIGN NAME:
N strips

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residence

INSPIRATION:
It’s a suggestion in a new facade by a white louver to make the superannuated outward appearance the integrated design with 2 stores. It was however abundant by just simple operation, not a vertical louver and was an important theme with the design to say whether you make an expression with the depth last.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A renovation of collective housing in an area for 39 years. Complete reformation of a facade, equipment and layout was desired. Though it harmonizes with the surrounding streets, the outward appearance of the white vertical louver will produce the sophisticated atmosphere and strengthen senses in the evening. It is an icon in the new town.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Eleven rooms of varying sizes have been repaired. All equipment in the rooms were reformed, and total of 7 types of dwelling door were changed to a plan which fits in with a present-day lifestyle. I set a band of the rent widely, live there and make the degree of freedom of the hand and the selectivity as expensive as possible.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2014 in Osaka and finished in July 2015.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
You were asking complete reformation of equipment laying of the pipes as well as a waterproof repair from an existence outer wall. The thing many have some unevenness and laying of exposed pipes on an outer wall was expected.

A vertical louver that allowed unevenness was adopted to provide both concealment and maintenance. The cedar is painted in white and is of light weight. The surface is ‘dimly grained’ in terms of reflectivity, like metal. With sunshine angles through the day various expressions are apparent.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
30 mm * 75 mm of section is arranged by a vertical louver at random freely. Very ugly wire passes in frontal road in a building. I thought I’d like to make a kind of contrast last in a facade so that it might be contrasted in this wire. Though an opening of a necessary minimum is opened in a facade and a view from the interior is secured, influence by wire is held at a minimum.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
11 rooms of big and small is generally divided into the renting type and the selling type. An efficient enemy way rationality-like design is performed and each resident’s opinion is introduced to a selling part, and the renting type is telling on a counter and needs of an upgrade of illumination and a sanitary equipment.

CHALLENGE:
Arrangement of a louver is decided about by program software as a Grasshopper. I digitized the condition such as the space of the louver and the opening rate and studied. An idea corresponding to the cost and the condition of the needs was chosen from the inside of an countless sample. A search with the design beyond the human consciousness and sense is being tried.
