Like the water rippling facade captures the urban landscape is fragmented. This facade is a minor change in the nature and forget that the city within the city, it's a sensitive capture device. Glass and consists of four modulor, such as traditional Japanese folding screen like a partition, with random variation, the scale of the city and the people back and forth. Landscape and refracted angles are not predicted, and passes through internal or reflected. There is a treason to those uniformed architecture in the city. Seems like a pleated skirt. Exterior design is an organic, internal space is characterized by keeping the control columns and beams are rational PCaPC. TSR building, trying to capture the subtle changes in the environment was buried in the city.
Located in downtown Tokyo, This Building is precast prestressed concrete(PCaPC) structure. Program is 1st-2nd floors is the mental clinic, 3rd-7th floors is the office , 8th floor is the club house. This project is based on the keywords the two environments. One is a office building located in a dense urban, is that if you read the context of the city. Second, hospitals with psychiatric history and rooted in the local context is that if you read the minds of the people attending it.
◆Technical themes - urban context ・Reuse · reuse the existing building basement precursor, reducing Co2 emissions by demolition. ・Control the thermal environment ·: Low-E glass using, filled with argon gas inside, uses a ceramic printing was further significantly reduce the energy. • Air-conditioning system uses under-floor: a residential air conditioner with power savings mentioned. • Structural: The adoption of the method PCaPC, shockproof, high strength structure, such as high strength. Reduced environmental impact by reducing the construction period. May Sustainable cited in longevity.
◆Historical inheritance of psychiatric hospitals - Context of the heart Mental context and environment "invisible" say. Create a unique ambience and atmosphere of its architecture, which means the environment to be inherited, such as history and tradition.
How do you inherit the history and tradition of community-based psychiatric hospital? Was the theme. So thought, "Inheritance of space and movement" is. The volume and flow planning inherit the old clinic space. The interior uses natural materials, making the interior space with no right angles, making the empty space with no sense of pressure and volume segments. Moved to the old lights and paintings used in the old clinic, "Memory of Light" and "Memory of the landscape," inherited. Heal the mind of the patient accumulation of small fragments of memories one by one, "invisible environment" produced.
