「将来的にカフェを営みたい」「敷地の持つポテンシャルを最大限活用して欲しい」の二つが施主であるご夫婦からの要望でした。

北側に広がる大きな公園は、借景として楽しめるという良い面だけでなく、公衆便所が近くにあるなど、悪い面も併せ持っています。そして高さ方向への移動でそういった「見たいもの」と「見たくないもの」が劇的に変化するのがこの敷地の特徴でした。

そこで「見たいもの/見たくないもの」に併せて「見せてもよいもの/見せたくないもの」を整理し、対照的な2つの要素で住宅を構成しました。

一つは公園側から反対側まで貫かれ、外に開かれ、周辺の良い環境を享受する”水平チューブ”です。もう一つは水平チューブによって穿たれた残りの部分で、外から閉ざし、トップライトからの光で生活をする空間です。

“ondo” is a house with a cafe, having 3 floors, a basement and a roof terrace. On the north side of the plot, the house faces one of the most famous parks in Tokyo. Since the plot is only 38 square meters, it was very important to pay attention to characteristic of the plot which dramatically changes with its vertical level.
The first floor, the café, is raised from ground level by 1.1 meter to be aligned with the park level to have pleasant atmosphere of the park and to provide visibility from the park. It is also advantage to make the basement floor with less excavation. On the second floor, a public lavatory and a transformer station come into sight. So the floor has fewer windows from outside but has two skylights. At the top floor level, by building volume regulation, a volume of the south side house has setback. So the floor can have both north and south views. On the rooftop, you can feel as if you were at the tree top.
As a result, the house consists of two parts. One is “horizontal tube” penetrating from park side to the other side. The part is open to the public. The other is the rest of the volume, just like an ants’ nest, which is, in contrast, totally private space living with skylights.
A couple, occupants of the house, had just a few requests. They want to have a café and to maximize the potential of the plot. Now they enjoy moving up and down between the two parts depending on their feeling etc. Rooms and functions are not one-to-one correspondence in the house.
