일본 후쿠오카, 상업지역에 위치한 프로젝트입니다. 주로 옷가게와 식당이 위치하며, 오래된 기존 2층 목조주택과 새로운 신축건물들이 도시환경의 발란스를 이루는 곳입니다.
콘크리트의 물성을 적나라하게 표현하는 노출콘크리트로 외부는 마감됩니다. 1층은 도로와 밀접하게 관계를 맺도록 하는 반면, 2층은 독립적인 공간활용이 가능하도록, 외부로 돌아 들어가는 계단이 설치되었습니다. 거대한 콘크리트 덩어리를 깍아낸 듯한 외부계단은 건물의 인상적인 장면을 만드는 디자인 어휘로 적용되었습니다.
Daimyo 509 is a minimalist architecture project located in Fukuoka, Japan, designed by CASE-REAL. Daimyo is a commercial area located in the heart of Fukuoka city, and is a home to many clothing shops and restaurants along its narrow allies. In contrast to this, old houses still remain standing which create a distinct atmosphere of low and high level buildings co-existing. The task the designers were given by the client was to design a two floor structure for high quality tenants. They decided to approach this task with their experience from commercial space design, and to adapt this into the architectural volume, structure and facility planning.
The volume on the ground level was set back in order to created a space which separates the relationship of the alley from the building and preventing the entrance from directly facing the streets surrounding. The approach created by this set back continues to the staircase which connects to the upper floor. In addition the line of the stair circles the building creating its distinct exterior impression. The overall building was constructed based on a frame structure, but by having all its pillars enclosed in the depth of its walls. In general visible pillars in limited zoning are considered as restrictions to the tenant plans, but by successfully designing a structure which creates a flat space, they were able to maintain the freeness for the tenant planning. The outlet / inlets for some of the facilities including air supply and exhausts were accumulated on the rooftop. Expected piping routes were pre-arranged to prevent effects to the exterior even after the tenants move in.
