The current wooden system, which is based on load-bearing wall calculations, is difficult to adapt to the long and narrow site in Kyoto, which is said to be the eel’s bed. While the width of the site is subdivided to the extent that the minimum amount of light, ventilation, and approach can be taken, at present, the only way to open the frontage direction is to use a steel frame or a special wooden Rahmen structure.
Therefore, we adopted a wooden construction to integrate the structure and the partition wall, and reduced the braces to two materials that stretch the entire frame of the building from the 1st to 3rd floors. These two braces are also the pillars that support the slab end beams on each floor, and the movement of the braces in three-dimensional space is reflected in the planar movement of the slab ends.
The opening at the north and south ends, the slab that skips north and south, the staircase slab, and two braced pillars create a space that inherits and develops the wooden structure that uses the floor and pillars as spatial elements. This is a proposal for a prototype like a wooden version of dominoes in Kyoto, where the grid-divided strip-shaped site will continue to exist in the future.
