A maisonette condominium that re-solved restrictions and created streets and alleys

When considering the renovation of a reinforced concrete apartment or housing complex, the building will prescribe a new plan to draw as an absolute existence. When designed to fit the skeleton, it is easy to store elements that you want to hide, such as storage, but ventilation such as water is often reliant on mechanical ventilation. If we feel doubt about that and reexamine the response relationship with the skeleton, we may be able to resolve various problems that are accepted in the renovation design of condominiums and housing complexes.
This time, the renovation is a maisonette-type apartment with a view of the mountains and the seaside view from the balcony. I thought it was important to have a plan that allows the wind to pass through the enclosure and feel the environment unique to this area because it is an area where westerly winds blow from the mountainside to the seaside. In addition, the main floor with kitchen/dining on the upper floor and the bedroom on the lower floor has been decided from existing, but because different worlds coexist on the upper and lower floors, the metaphors “Avenue” and “Alley” Gave.

First of all, the upper floor has a south sash with four wooden drawers to maximize the opening width. Centering on the island’s kitchen and dining table, the rest of the elements are efficiently and compactly packed, making it a space like the main street dotted with places.
On the lower floor, baths and sanitary are not arranged near the skeleton but are arranged as two islands in the center. This creates a thin space between the skeleton and the water, apart from the corridors along the stairs. This is a winding passage that brings natural ventilation to the bathroom and sanitary, and it will also be an auxiliary passage when the south room is divided into two child rooms in the future. In addition, the wall around the island has a different color scheme in each direction. The color scheme of the walls gives a difference between light and darkness and a feeling of air, creating an alley space that makes you want to walk around without a dead end.

By reexamining from the response relationship with the skeleton and making use of being a maisonette, different worlds coexist on the upper and lower floors. Each of them has a peculiar westerly wind and the light passage from the mountain to the sea, creating a place that is not cut off from the surrounding environment by the absolute existence of a skeleton.
