A house in the site which is 5m wide and 13m long.

The offer is to create a house which a family can nestle in, even it’s small. The building’s aim was to utilize reinforced concrete and wooden structure. The site is small and skinny, and it is not rare in Japanese cities. Most of all cases in Japan are under restrictions of car parking spaces. In order to secure passage to the entrance and the parking space, bottom part of the building was constructed by reinforced concrete which made cantilever possible for the purpose. Wooden structure was chosen for the other part to adapt high humidity of Japanese climate. The project started from an inquiry of a construction company which specialize in public works like dams and elevated bridges for bullet trains. In the inquiry, they explained that they want to create architecture which is close to the everyday life like residences by utilizing their knowledge and technology of public works. Through the research about their company and construction sites, we noticed that the biggest assets of them are the outstanding ability of construction precision and quality control, and those are invisible and shared by members of the company. In 2006, we named the project “Ie Project” (Ie means a house in Japanese.), and our first duties was to create a housing construction section in the company. The project was aimed to realize with the budget of less than 30million Yen, and it contains purchase of a site, design, construction and the house itself. In order to realize the project, there are various rules were set. We were trying to sell the system and the rules, not the design of architecture.

幅5.0M、奥行き13.0Mの敷地に建つ住宅です。

小さくても家族が寄り添って幸せに暮らすことが出来る住宅が望まれました。
この計画は、ダムや新幹線の高架橋などの公共土木工事を専門とする会社からの問い合わせからはじまったプロジェクトです。問い合わせは、社会的な生活基盤を支える大きな構築物だけでなく、公共土木で培った企業資産(知識や技術)で、住宅のようなもっと身近な場

所で生活を支えるものをつくっていきたいという内容のものでした。彼らの会社や実際に施工を行う現場をリサーチする中で、土木工事で培われたこの企業の最 大の資産は、目に見える形あるものではなく、暗黙知として無意識の状態で共有されている、守るべき施工精度や管理品質の高さであると感じました。2006 年、プロジェクトには「家プロジェクト」というネーミングが与えられ、私たちの設計業務は、企業の中に建築施工部門を設計することからはじまりました。
このプロジェクトは、土地の取得から設計・工事・住宅を取得するまでの総予算を3000万円以下で実現することを目指しています。そのため、建築のつくり方や設計基準以外にも、様々なルールを設定しています。カタチなどは決めずに、ルールを商品化出来ないかと考えました。
惜しくもこの企業は営業を停止することとなりましたが、近い将来、必ずこのプロジェクトに関わったメンバーとともに、再び住宅をつくりたいと思っています。
