“Rebuilding from one to one”
Sorte has been built where there was once an old timber house. It has a good influence on surrounding area by making the the outside approach a space of sharing. Because the approach of five households the floor concentrates, it becomes a three-dimensional composition of the vertical direction of each unit.
The architect thought that a three-dimensional composition becomes affluent space in the city. The area and the plan of all units are different. Which unit which part to the building has been stored is not understood from the outside and high privacy is secured. This is a result of considering that it is on the site where the detached house in the one-storied house was built originally.
If the building can be recognized as one target, it is not a subdivision from 1 unit to 5 units, and it becomes rebuilding in one object one object. And, the role of the site in the city in the building doesn’t change. The architect believes that such a three-dimensional house of terrace style becomes one method of raising the quality of living by constructing in a high density residential quarter in the center of a city.
