Outline

This is a renovation project of a mass-production house built over 40 years ago on the land of stone wall construction. Since the former owner left five years ago, the house has been gradually deteriorated. However, we found the original steel structure adequately meets to the seismic criterion of today and the simple way of assembling light steel members represents the spirit of modernism. Responding to the need to accommodate more diversified lifestyles, we changed the original functional plan with minim corridor into more flexible spaces as the mixture of circulation and enclosures. Three openings of the upper floor develop the spatial continuity to vertical directions, also providing viewpoints to the horizontal expanse through the lovely low-tech trussed frames.
