PivotWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformText description provided by the architects. This house and atelier were a renovation of an approximately 80-year old duplex tenement in Osaka City. The original building was a typical tenement. There are still many tenements in Osaka City, but many are being routinely demolished.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe neighbor is a healthy octogenarian woman, living alone. In order to ease her uneasiness from the neighboring duplex being uninhabited, the resident began living there several years ago.
While providing a sense of safety to the neighbors by living in the previously vacant house, the resident also caused her trouble by making noise, since the old tenement was only divided by a wall (the boundary wall did not reach the roof truss). Therefore, bookshelves that reach the roof truss were inserted.
The old components, such as the structure and clay walls, were left as much as possible. Once hidden traces of the anonymous workers who built the house were exposed to show respect to them. New components were partially added to adapt to a modern lifestyle.Save this picture!© Hiroshi NakamuraSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hiroshi NakamuraBy conserving the tenement, which is open to the community and can have a close relationship with the town, I desire that the tenement will be called “YOSHINAGAYA” (meaning good tenement).Save this picture!© Tsujimoto ShinkoProject gallerySee allShow lessLakeway Residences / Clark Richardson ArchitectsSelected Projects2015 World Design Rankings for Arts, Architecture and Design AnnouncedMisc Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780981/yoshinagaya-office-for-environment-architecture Clipboard 2014 Year: Architects: Office for Environment Architecture Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area: 56 m² Area: 56 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Osaka, Japan 2014 Yoshinagaya / Office for Environment ArchitectureSave this projectSaveYoshinagaya / Office for Environment Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780981/yoshinagaya-office-for-environment-architecture Clipboard Projects Yoshinagaya / Office for Environment Architecture CopyAbout this officeOffice for Environment ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOsakaJapanPublished on January 27, 2016Cite: “Yoshinagaya / Office for Environment Architecture” 26 Jan 2016.
