Admiration  for  a “gable roof” which is very ordinary.

A gable roof is one of the most common building types at agricultural village. It has been used not only for Buddhist temples but also for storages and houses that were unknown.  After modernization, the gable roof type is undergoing many changes that is about scale, usage, material and construction. Under the influence of industrialization and urbanization, long gable roofs need to be adapted to large-scale shed, vinyl greenhouse, and livestock processing plant. It is changing the scenery of agricultural villages. We pay attention to the gable roof that is common and long-running building type. As a “Living and Breathing Silence”, this building put the form of life by following the common building type on demand of site and programs.

Elevation Design : abstract painting of forest

The site is located in front of the forest that is full of coniferous trees like pine and fir tree. The trees grow straight toward the sky at irregular spots. These vertical rhythms of site are adapted to the building’s elevation.

Considering changes of management and remodeling, all inside wall are non bearing wall. Therefore tube rhamen construction is selected that and outer wall share the loads. Especially, because employee’s accommodations’ inside walls on the second floor are also non bearing wall, it can be used as single space after remodeling.
