The beauty of the form.
It’s something we all admire.
On the other hand
This feeling is that there is a big difference felt by individuals.
The difference in sensitivity is inexplicable.
Houses designed to appear in photo magazines, houses that are beautiful only for show and ignore the functionality of living, houses designed to create a buzz to sell ……
The rootless claims of beauty born from the ego of architects and the commercialism of prefabricated houses are prevalent in modern house building.
On the other hand, the unresearched and imitated designs of local construction companies, represented by the word “※Dasai” are still the same.
※Dasai means No aesthetic sense
We believe that the beauty of a house comes from its design, which pursues functionality. And the greatest function required of a house is to be able to live healthily. As I’ve mentioned so far that are necessary for creating a healthy house, and I believe that the ideal is for these principles to be designed and the result to be beauty. Let’s look at them step by step.
First of all.
Design and beauty of the floor plan.
Accumulation of small details alone is not enough to create a beautiful design. The most important thing is the composition of the large space. If the space itself is not beautifully composed, no matter how much effort is put into the details, it will end up looking tacky.
In terms of beauty, a multi-bedroom layout that is cut into small rooms is disqualifying.
An expansive space with a long line of sight is the way to go. Spaciousness is a prerequisite for creating a beautiful space.
The design and beauty of the frame and structure itself.
The passive house is made of domestic solid wood, processed with traditional joints and fittings to create the structure. Of course, the main purpose of the structure is to ensure the strength and durability of the house. We base our floor plans on this sturdily designed structure.
When the columns and beams are exposed, the beautiful interior space is due to the beauty of the well-organized structure. It is the strong structure that supports the dynamic slanted ceiling that matches the roof slope without showing the beams.
The beauty of design as passive solar.
In addition, some requirements must be met, such as the need for over-roof ventilation on a high position on the roof that exhausts the air in the skeleton space .
Based on these requirements, the design beauty of the passive house is also possible.
The beauty of natural materials.
The beauty of the material itself can be pursued. This is the beauty of the natural wood floor in a spacious room in an open space. This can also be seen in the large wall surface created in atrium spaces. The beauty of solid wood. The knots are its unique stars.
The expression of painted walls is even more diverse. The glow of plaster, various textures, and a variety of colors. Paints, tiles, and stones can also be used in a variety of ways.
Fittings can change the face of a room in many ways.
The passive house is based on the principle of an expansive floor plan, and the space is divided by sliding doors. The sliding door is a wonderful tool invented by the Japanese. Unlike a door, it can be opened or closed, fully opened or partially opened, at will.
The sliding doors are all handmade, so the size of the sliding doors depends on the design: they can be made as high as the ceiling, three sliding doors instead of two, or three sliding doors instead of four.
The materials that make up the sliding doors can also be selected. From solid wood to colorful sliding doors, a wide range of expression is possible, such as lightness and darkness through material and color.
You can even pull the sliding door into the wall and pull it out only when you need it. The sliding door is the director of the space.
Of course, I am not denying doors. Sliding doors are difficult to hang paintings and other works of art on the wall because the fittings are pulled into the wall, but doors have the advantage of leaving the wall clean. The key is to use them in the proper way.
Based on these basic designs, the fun of devising details such as handrails for stairs and stairwells, built-in furniture such as shoe boxes, and bookshelves using small walls will achieve a finely detailed and delicate beauty.
If we can design a beautiful framework of the basic performance required for a healthy home, and then construct the details as delicately as possible, we can achieve the ideal of function equals beauty.
