K Property by Kimura Matsumoto

Japanese architectural company Kimura Matsumoto has created the K Property.

The design and style of this modern residence was created making use of the scale of its environment, which interestingly resulted in 3 storeys differing in h7

Finished in 2012, it is situated in Osaka, Japan.

K Home by Kimura Matsumoto:

“The site faces a hectic road. Near this house, there are galleries, studios and the park exactly where music festival is held every year.

Our clientele are an artist and his household. We imagined, for the place that they make a perform and lives beneath everyday daily life, the state that the applications this kind of as a house, an atelier, and a shop mixed was excellent. At the exact same time, we regarded “Comfort to reside in the town” as important. We deemed that “Comfort” to be that numerous hierarchies from the town to a person continued smoothly. Exclusively, we used some scales (the scale of civil engineering structure, the scale of furniture/personal articles, the scale of conduct) across boundaries.

First of all, we put a volume nearer south neighboring land side. Then, the left-above space on the road side continued with space carried out the setback of the western apartment, and came to have an expanse as a parking, an open room and an open backyard.

Secondly, we made 3 different stories of the h7 On the very first floor, ceiling height is 4450 mm of the practically exact same size as the width of the front road (the scale of a town was taken in this home). In the 2nd floor, we adopted the distance amongst the outer wall with the next door to ceiling height (the second floor like the attic inserted amongst the 1st far floor and the third close to floor). The third floor is in the height beyond the surrounding roof, and is quite vibrant (we encounter neighboring roofs like a landscape).

For each and every floor, we provided spandrel walls of thickness 270mm. This separates the within and the outside definitely and offers a sense of safety within, and causes an act from the outdoors and can make an chance of the communication with the inside and the outdoors. Spandrel wall changes its height in each floor accordingly the scale of habits, a entire body and a town. The walls of thickness 106mm on spandrel wall are thin (the inside and outside bodily sensation distance shrink). The dimension of steel pillar (75×75 mm) is near to the dimensions of furnishings and fittings (the existing difference between structure and furnishings shrink). And the stairs and the handrail resemble the kind of furnishings and a device (the meaning of the component gets to be multiplex).

This building is created from this kind of scale operations and constrained materials. We aimed at the comfy lifestyle in a town full of sectional modifications. (Yoshinari Kimura + Naoko Matsumoto)

Structure plan

With this building, solid steel frame pillars of 75mm assistance 3 stories of floor height 4,715mm.

By using spandrel walls of the 1st floor as concrete encased column bases to control the buckling length, decreasing the fat of fixed load to reduce a long term axial stress, utilizing the brace with the flat bar for a wall to safe required horizontal load bearing capacity and needed rigidity, the framework thickness of the pillar, the beam, and the brace of a perimeter side was able to be suppressed to 75 mm or much less as a result.

In addition, by stopping ground improvement and thickening the raft basis as site visitors vibration measures with the light-weighting, tightening a precision management condition when choosing a steel fabrication factory, managing the place of the pillar and anchor bolt completely and so on, I made efforts in the generating of background of structural elegance for this venture.
