In 1960’s, a lot of new town were planned in suburban section of a big city. Yokosuka-shi Takatori housing complex is one of them. Aging is advancing in this new town where was developed for the baby-boom generations. It is seem to hear the sound of “new town” is old already.

This house planned for metabolism in the new town.

Takatori housing complex has not strict legal restriction because the new town was built in early stage. However, division of a site cannot make by the construction agreement of this area. People who leave their lot for it are increase, and the housing complex has begun to be worm-eaten. A home next to the client’s parents’ home was also put up for sale by aging, so clients began to live close enough to share a meal regularly with their parents.

A step with a neighboring land is big in this new town because it was developed by turning hill into housing lots. Because of that, continuity of lands has passed but it is so encouraging for the parent that son’s family live in the next.

If the next house wasn’t put up for sale, maybe the parent sale their house and move to convenient high-rise condominium in the opposite. The son’s family lives in the next and their child can live in the house of the parent in the future. People who live in a developed housing complex without contemplating the far future have begun to contemplate the future and make their life plan.

“A house we want…” is the home everyone dreams about, but I ask “Please tell me about a house actually you want.” then, they answer “We couldn’t to say because it embarrassed actually but…” and I get the truth out of them. When the real intention is being solved, one shape is being seen rationally.

The house could be rational and felt wider by settling their real intention even under limited some conditions. Maybe it was the project which inspires a new wind in soaring of construction cost of these days.
