Opened house with courtyard and terrace : #9803

There are many old apartments which were built after the Second World War in Yuzato, Osaka.

This project was the rebuilding of an old apartment in this area...

The floor area ratio is 200%. I wanted to fully use this condition, but the shadow regulation was really strict, so the part of the apartments which was more than 5 floors was required to be revised. Also, I used steel a frame structure for this part.

As a result, the apartment has a large roof terrace and an open view. We might regard the 1st to the 4th floors as concrete foundation. The owner's house was built over the foundation, and it is silhouetted in the city.

This renewed apartment may be one of the models for the rebuilding of apartments in this area.

The steel structured owner's house is over the rental apartment that structure is reinforced concrete.
