clover house
This is a housing complex that consists of two owner-occupied units and seven leased units. An unusual residential district in a metropolitan area, there are no buildings adjacent to the island-like site. The architecture here was conceived as a freestanding object with a standard leasing plan, and an exterior shape defined by daylight and setback regulations. While open toward the surroundings, off-the-shelf perforated folded sheets were used as a screen over the whole facade to mediate the residential spaces, making a moderately closed, protective residence. While containing residences through which soft light passes, it retains the impression of a simple exterior: architecture as scenery. The name "clover house" was chosen due to the plan being divided into three towers.
