K-HOUSE in Nagoya city, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

A small house located on a steep slanting slope. The client simply wanted a life with a blessing of nature nearby and the beautiful townscape in distance. The site was steeply sloped down, almost like a cliff, leaving only a narrow platform wide enough for a car. We first had an idea to excavate the ground to generate a living space.  Corresponding the nature form, heterogeneous and flexible space would retrieve the enchantment of the site. Not a house constructed on a cliff, but a habitat generated by the nature form of the cliff. A habitat like a pit or a shed posteriorly discovered in the terrains of landscape.

The 180 meter high office tower serves as the focal point for the east of Paris in the new urban development of the XIII arrondissement. The tower consists of five city blocks of only six stories each, cantilevered from two vertical cores with open space between the volumes. Each block has an open inner court and vast roof gardens. In this way, a new type of green urban skyscraper has been developed that combines the quality of a low-rise urban fabric with the potential of high-rise tower. The foot of the tower has a hotel and shopping center, as well as ten underground parking levels.
