IDEA Office coordinated with the clients of Y-house to develop a design that successfully incorporates solar access to all parts of the house, connecting to the surrounding environment through outdoor spaces that enhanced the feeling of openness all while maintaining privacy.  Follow the break for photographs and drawings of Y-house. Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraRecommended ProductsWindowsJansenWindows – JanisolStoolsAndreu WorldLineal – BarstoolHandlesHOPPEWindow Handle – Stockholm with SecuSan®The site for the house is located in a northern suburb of metropolitan Tokyo that is undergoing almost continuous development. It is bound on three sides by neighboring two story houses punctuated by random windows and balconies that eliminate any chance for privacy, and by a street located along the southern edge. Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraThe forms and organizations of the urban single-family house (along with a variety of other building types) have been driven toward extreme versions of efficiency by an ever-increasing metropolitan density. In a city like Tokyo, increasing land values, proximity to public transportation and the recognized value of maintaining a maximum amount of undeveloped open space outside of the city limits have produced models of ‘existence minimum’ that eclipse any western precedents; we marvel at the phenomenon of the ‘Tokyo dwelling’, where the most is made with the least. Objects are both miniaturized and multi-functional, and even the most modest condition of outdoor space is captured as a commodity of light, air and view. At its best the result is creative solutions driven by extreme constraint, at its worst the production of almost inhumane living conditions. Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraThe house is deployed on three levels: carport, utility and garden on the ground, primary living spaces on the second level, and children’s bedrooms on the third. The three levels are densely organized in the rear half of the site as a tall bar building, liberating the front half of the site as a privacy to provide unfettered solar access, a useful outdoor terrace that effectively doubles the living space, and a garden. The outdoor space is made private by a large, two-story enclosure around its perimeter that is open to the sky. All rooms of the house are oriented to look into the private terrace and garden, avoiding an awkward proximity with their neighbors. A single, large rectangular cutout in the street façade brings south light into the terrace and living areas beyond, while the adjacent garden is more enclosed, introverted and shaded. Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraThe house is strategically designed for passive solar control, employing the screen wall to shade the garden and adjacent bedrooms, and by incorporating a steel brise soleil to cool south facing glazing. Operable skylights allow for the natural ventilation of summer heat, while the low winter sun is brought into the house for passive heating. Other sustainable features include insulated metal panels, a reflective white roof, and instantaneous water heater. Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraBy locating the living areas on the second and third floors at the rear of the site the sectional qualities of the house provide privacy from the street while maintaining southern exposure. By employing a building organization that relies on a densely packed and efficient volume to liberate the remainder of the site, the Y-house creatively responds to the conditions of urban density in order to liberate the pleasures of living.Save this picture!© Kouichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Photographers: Joao MorgadoArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share CopyAbout this officeIDEA OfficeOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaitama-shiHousesJapanPublished on November 16, 2010Cite: “Y-house / IDEA Office” 16 Nov 2010.

Zorba is located in Yeonnam-dong on a narrow 5m wide road toward the east, facing the park. An ordinary residential area where its surrounded by rare single houses and multiplex houses.Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimThis is where we plan an advertising company building. The first request from the client was to aim for non-mainstream feeling and be simple at the same time,  and prefer a true industrial atmosphere, not just for the look. A company aims for authentic vibe throughout its customer relation,content orientation, work attitude and office relations. “We pursue a company who work and communicate with honesty.” Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimWith an intention to use second basement floor to the fifth floor by the advertisement company and third and fourth floors are for lease. Unlike the expectation of an advertising agency would deal with creative work, they are to be always loyal to clients no matter how excessive and absurd their requests are, which makes ’emotional labor’ the nature of the company’s work.Due to this reason, it is planned to achieve resting places in every workspace and outdoor space on one side, so where one side is for people to relax and heal their minds, and another for workers who work on tasks require and overcoming spirit.Save this picture!DiagramThe standing height seating on the second basement and first floor are considered as a structure with the height difference. The outdoor terraces on each floor are resting places where you can see the rain, snow and night full of stars. The Seongmi mountain landscape can become a healing place from the roof rerrace on the fifth floor.Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimThey even might heal from just looking at the terraces of Mt. Bukansan, Mt. Namsan and Mt. Dobongsan from the distance. If it were a company where we can rest and work like home, wouldn’t this be a home where the heart is? “The only requirement for one to sense that all this is happiness is to possess a heart that is also simple and self-restrained.” (ZORBA The Greek) Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimProject gallerySee allShow lessE6 · Bentu One / Infinity MindSelected ProjectsThe Social at Hilton Headquarters / CORE architecture + designSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Houses “COPY” Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897648/yeonnam-dong-zorb-modo-architect-office Clipboard Photographs:  Jae-Kyeong Kim Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project kim kyung-hee, lee eung-rak Architects: modo architect office Area Area of this architecture project Yeonnam-dong ZORB / modo architect office Area:  848 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Manufacturers: City Architecture, Terraco Korea, The Moon, Woosung Ceramics ind.Co.LTD Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong Kim+ 44Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Yeonnam-dong, South Korea Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897648/yeonnam-dong-zorb-modo-architect-office Clipboard South Korea CopyAbout this officemodo architect officeOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsYeonnam-dongSouth KoreaPublished on August 28, 2018Cite: “Yeonnam-dong ZORB / modo architect office” 27 Aug 2018.
