Our view of architecture
How to live, and how to use architecture. For example, housing. People want to live a certain way. It is the job of architects to compile their desires. The same idea applies to design of not only houses, but cafes and shops as well
How to live, and how to use architecture. For example, housing.
Just as chairs are conceived with the assumption that they will be used to sit on, houses must be conceived for the people who will live in them. Design and materials are some of the important elements that make up a house, but we must think together about how to live in a house. The same goes for the family composition, and there is also the problem of where to live. One might also consider the time until children become independent. Even if it is difficult to explain your housing needs in words, first why not try thinking of how you intend to live there?
I want to live in this way. It is the job of architects to compile that desire.
How to organize the things that matter to people living there. There is never just one answer, nor is there just one thing that people will be satisfied with. It's not about choosing one thing and giving up another. Sometimes the budget may be the sum of the demands. Say you need storage space, but it doesn’t fit in the budget. In such a case we apply division and subtraction to derive an answer that is close to correct, such as staying within the budget even if the storage capacity is less than the desired storage amount.
The same idea applies to design of not only houses, but cafes and shops as well.
We start by thinking about how to use the cafe as a place to spend time and restaurants as a place to enjoy meals. Housing is expected to function as a place for certain people to live, but for commercial facilities we must continue to pursue how to appeal to an unspecified number of people. We think that architecture is not something special, but rather is something both tangible and intangible very familiar to the public and society, so we believe that we must be very sensitive to what is deep in our clients’ hearts. Our job as architectural designers may be the work of compiling the things that could happen there.
