셀프-포드는 개인 서재 리뉴얼 프로젝트로, 건축주의 방대한 이슬람 역사 관련 서적을
소장 및 전시하기 위하여 시작됩니다. 효과적으로 건축주의 요구사항을 충족시키기 위하여
건축가는 소나무 보드를 이용한 격자구조 형태의 선반을 디자인합니다. 그리고 이 격자선반은
다음과 같은 치수(높이:360mm/ 너비&폭:300mm)로 제작되어 인테리어 디자인을 이루는
건축적 스케일의 척도로 활용되어 내부의 각각 요소들을 조화롭게 매치 시킵니다.
-이 기준으로 계단, 창문, 책상, 의자 등이 제작됩니다.-
또한 혁신적인 격자시스템은 단순히 많은 양의 책을 보관하는데 그치지 않고
다양한 레벨공간으로 이루어진 거주 환경속의 플렉시블한 활동을 연결하는
매개체 역활을 수행함으로써 공간의 연속성을 보장,
끊임없는 거주활동을 보장합니다.
책을 좋아하는 안사람에게 나중에 꼭 디자인 해야 줘야 할 것만 같습니다.

Shelf-Pod is a private study facility, located in Osaka prefecture,
Japan. The client owns an extensive collection of books on the subject
of Islamic history, so he requested that we create this building with
the maximum capacity for its storage and exhibition.

In order to satisfy this demand effectively, we designed a lattice structure made from 25mm thick laminated pine-board which serve as book-shelves. The dimensions of each shelf are as follows: 360mm height, 300mm width and 300mm depth. All of the architectural elements in this space (stairs, windows, desks, chairs, etc) have been designed on the basis of this shelf scale, with the aim of achieving geometrical harmony which is comparable to Islamic Architecture.
This innovative structural system affords not only large amount of book storage, but the possibility of flexible floor level which can be delivered from every height of bookshelf. Each space for different activity rise up helically, giving the impression of exploring a wooden jungle gym.
The original image of this structure is derived from the Japanese woodcraft of Kumiko. The structural integrity against an earthquake is provided by a panel of plywood board nailed on the shelf. Initially, the horizontal resistant force guaranteed by the panels was examined in a real-scale model. Further to this, an analysis of the whole structure was performed in order to determine the placement of the windows and panels. The inter-locking laminated pine-board was manufactured precisely in advance and assembled on-site. Similarly, the pyramid-shaped roof was assembled on-site, from 12 pieces of prefabricated wooden roof panel. The completed roof has a thickness of only 230mm and sensitively covers the whole space like the dome of a Mosque.
In addition to its unique structure, the outer wall employs the
construction techniques of a traditional Japanese storehouse Dozou. The
bamboo net wall foundation layer was attached to the lattice structure
and the clay and straw mixture was applied to the foundation by the
trowel. Then the red cedar panels forms exterior wall. The interior clay
wall was finished with white plaster. These techniques are in
accordance with urban fireproofing specifications, as well as
maintaining a suitably humid environment for the storage of books.
Islamic calligraphy on the wall, it is written in arabic, but the language is japanese and turkish. The biggest one, written as “kun-pu-tei”, means “istanbul house”, it is the name of the house and the others are turkish greetings.
