Hokkaido House
This is a house built in the central portion of the city in Hokkaido. The neighboring house approaches the next ground very limit borderline on the housing complex and the east side of seven stories, and there is a building of the tax office not used now in the west side in the south.
A multistory housing complex will be expected to be built to this tax office in the future. In such “State”, the design was advanced aiming to give a steady space to the person who lived. It spaces it though it is quiet and steady without blockading agreeable. The house has been designed in the place named [orudosu] of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region before. As for it, a house big as for surroundings was scheduled to be built in the one of making big construction in the division that had been greatly sold in lots.

As we begin our studies with the given condition, a rational square plan is constructed with the rooms fitted into the plan. However, we realize that this method creates extra circulation corridors and orients rooms and views in an irrational manner. The smallest plan of each program is cut out to be placed in a location and orientation that is favorable. For example, the kitchen is placed in a “selfish” way to look out to the tree garden on the site, and then connected the dinning to the kitchen. With this method, the extra circulation corridors to connect the spaces and hierarchy due to its location and orientation are omitted.
Volumetric study follows by setting all volume to 10 m high. From this point, according to the room function and area, the appropriate ceiling height is applied to each volume. Each volume becomes shorter as it sprawls from the tallest central living room. From certain points of the site, the house may look symmetrical but one step over, the form changes; similar phenomenon to construct in nature.
