'goro goro' space invites the family to interact and rest within casa eri in japan
'고로고로' 공간을 통해 일본에 위치한 까사 에리는 소통과 휴식을 완성합니다.
‘casa eri’ is a house for a family of four that wanted to move out of the bustling center of tokyo, japan, and be closer to their grandparents’ house. the family decided to build the new residence in the same plot as their grandparents, keeping, on the one hand, the values of the existing house, but at the same time creating an outdoor space for the families to encounter.
YSLA architects designed the new house around the tatami room — a kids room on the ground floor of the grandparents’ house — creating an outdoor space in between the two houses. this open area serves as a place for the families to meet and interact while keeping independence and privacy.
도쿄로부터 떨어진 한적한 마을에 3대를 위한 주택 프로젝트가 시작됩니다. 구성은 기존 주거와 새로운 주거가 결합된 형태 입니다. 부모님 집의 1층에 위치한 다다미방(아이방)은 기존 주거와 새로운 주거공간을 가운데 위치한 마당과 함께 연결하는 구심점 역활을 수행합니다. 이 열린 공간은 프라이버시 확보가 가능한 독립적 구성이 가능한 동시에 가족들이 만나고 교류하는 공용공간 역활을 함께 수행합니다.
‘GORO GORO’ SPACE, A FLEXIBLE AND FLUID AREA
YSLA architects developed the living areas, the dining, and the ‘goro goro’ space around the outdoor patio while the dormitory was placed on the second floor and designed as a tatami room. a workstation was also designed on the ground floor with the possibility of being connected or isolated from the living areas and with special attention to the light and privacy.
originally in japanese ‘goro’ expresses the sound of something rolling, hence ‘goro goro’ serves to talk about lying down or turning over. the living area or ‘goro goro’ space takes shape as a flexible space where family members can interact or simply rest. it is a fluid space that one can lay down, sit, walk, read, paint, make origami and ikebana, or just do nothing. placed in between the dining and the second-floor dormitory this area adds a new meaning between night activities and daily functions. it is a place for both parents and children to relax, come together, communicate, a space for active relaxation.
