Unfinished Box in Yashio
This was for the same client for whom I designed gF3 Househ, the first project undertaken when garchitecture WORKSHOPh was established. gF3 Househ was like a box inserted into a ready-made glass greenhouse. A great distance seemed to me to separate it from a conventional house. This sense of distance has motivated me to assemble subsequent buildings in the way that I have. gUnfinished Box in Yashioh may be houselike in appearance, but it is not a house. When I was designing it, its purpose was not yet fixed. Programs for storage space, office and so-called "share-house" (a house designed to be shared by two or more unrelated occupants) were studied in designing it, but its use remains undetermined. If and when a user does appear, the plan is to complete the building to suit its intended program.
