Six-Sheet Roof House

Studio Velocity as Architects

This area has gentle hills. Many sites have developed the flat ground by heaping up soil, thereforethere are no connections between the natural typography of the road and the flattened sites.I connected the landscape and the road. I built six roofs in HP shell which lie one on top of another tothe landscape.I designed each of the roofs so that eaves become high to center of the site, and low to the outside. Inthe center a bright open living space is created, and the outside addresses the surrounding town at ahuman scale.The line which connects the lowest to the highest point of each roof creates a diagonal line.

 

The lineis a gentle valley, therefore the flow of rainwater is controlled.I made gaps between the roofs which lie one on top of another by lifting up each corner beside thehighest and lowest points on the roof.The gaps allow the passing of wind and light, connecting the house to the elements.The underside of the roof with its around of curved surfaces responds to the gently undulatingtypography of the town. As life passes between the space under the eaves a continuity is createdbetween inside and outside.
