Located in Osaka, Japan, Atlas House (2013) by Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates. “The basis” of the 2,992  ft² (278 m²) space reconstruct the workings of people each time. It is easily thinkable to design a plan with some facilities which can accept the change assumed in various ways. However, there is a possibility which the facilities themselves can be invalidated by own existence against an unexpected change instantly.


The state of future architecture which presupposes the chain of housing removal. The plan of residence for a couple in their 50s and dental clinic for his son. The client told us that there is a possibility of change in housing form as a house of the pro-household and a doctor’s office of their son in the first stage. Then it is possible that the housing form change to the duplex house with a pro-household and the child household, A house and doctor’s office of the child household, A house and rental house of the child household and the share house which assumes the whole of the house. Thinking of the architecture which accepts a change in the style of living like this way, We started from the idea which future architecture should be planned on the assumption that there is a possibility of the chain of housing removal in modern times when working of people itself change rapidly.

 

 


 

“The basis” of the space reconstruct the workings of people each time. It is easily thinkable to design a plan with some facilities which can accept the change assumed in various ways. However, there is a possibility which the facilities themselves can be invalidated by own existence against an unexpected change instantly. Then we decided to stop “designing a plan which can accept an expected change”. We became aware of a possibility of a method which produces the basis and standard for those who live and utilize the space each time it happens. Since the basis exists in the space, people can reconstruct their own lives by using the basis as a standard.


An architectural language called the main pillar as “the basis” of the space. The architectural language with special meaning has been used for Japanese residence since ancient times. For example, Tokonoma referring to a built-in recessed space in a Japanese style reception room, which highlights invisible planning describing as the upper and lower seat by its presence beyond the ability to decorate things. The meaning of the main pillar is interesting to the point. The main pillar emerges an invisible planning beyond the structural function generally as the metaphor representing the head of a family, sometimes representing the boundaries between an earth floor and a room floored with tatami mats, and also symbolizing the center of a house with having invisible plan emerge the direction around the pillar.
