Seashore Shell House

il

Architect: Takeshi Hirobe

Location: Chiba Prefecture, Japan

Year built: 2008

Situated on a populated bathing beach, the site is surrounded by neighboring houses on three directions. It was a natural decision to open up the house towards the sea. The idea was to obstruct the view disturbing and frame the beautiful view to the sea and the sky at the same time. He experimented with different types of structure-style courtyard, in order to find a way to frame the sea and the sky. And in the end it has come to this retreat-like structure. It is composed of a sequence of structural elements that surrounds the empty space in the middle, with no wall or roof. From this structure you have created a spatial image of a person wandering in a shell. Seashore Shell House is a wooden shell structure with the rhythmic sequence of curved fold-like structural elements.
