|With family,neighbors,nature and society.|
| [HORON] means the unit of whole and part
balancing each other and harmonizing organically.
It is also used as a pronoun of coexistence.
Multiple dwelling house in 21st century will
be required「coexistence」of individual and
society, human and nature, communication
with neighbors. "X"EXA HORON, developed by us, is entirely a new construction
method of multiple dwelling house. It excels
in openness, independence and communicative
function with neighbors compared to the former
We, Light architecture office, propose multiple dwelling house construction by using HORON construction method as a way of making 21st century town that is comfortable to live in.
|The multiple dwelling house put importance not only on valuing individual but also on living with family, neighbors, nature and society. This is the origin of "X"EXA HORON.|
| Ideal type of multiple dwelling house
HORON can realize a multiple dwelling house at a low price (*) as mentioned below.
| Independent dwelling house which has only
little pressure from the next rooms.
IWe realized the high independence which could be realized only by a high grade multiple dwelling house with both restricting the numbers of common wall and the structure that extends the areas of external wall of each dwelling house. An exclusive balcony has tranquil space because it is separated from the next rooms.
Furthermore, privacy and tranquility are kept inside the house. This is because we consider the sound insulation toward upstairs by using double floor structure or grid beam.
|Highly independent housing which is made by the combination of quadrangle and octagon, and common space which has communication.|
Building[city style multiple dwelling house
for 21st century] 12.1998
We are entering the times of adapting to human heart or nature connected to the global environment. After experiencing social phenomena such as Oam Shinrikyou affair, murder cases, Hanshin Awaji earthquake disaster, the conference of global green house effect in Kyoto. Furthermore, people are seeking strongly「universal design」in the aging society. In Japanese contemporary city housing, especially housing environment of the old age in multiple dwelling house and high density resident, there left 「quality of space where we can live」, which is unbelievable when we consider our scientific technology or maturity of life culture.
Various problems of house building have been left by the principles of economic market. These problems are caused by「disturbance of social structure」such as evasion of responsibility whether politically or economically. They reveal our cultural backward.
[Multiple dwelling house for tomorrow]is expected to keep the independence of family members and individuals, to connect to the neighborhood and city space, to unite the heart of regional residence with nature - sun, wind, rain and verdure ?, and to become environmental coexistence space where comfort and tranquility of body and heart increase. It is required to remodel this space into[the system that can vitalize its coordination]with global resources or energy counter plan responding to the resident’s value and finance by combining science, technology and circulation.
We propose["X"EXA HORON]as a construction system. It becomes the core of the mechanism which makes[multiple dwelling house for tomorrow]in 21st century.
