K Clinic
K Clinic is built in a small new town of Mie prefecture near to Nara and Osaka in Japan. The town was developed in 1960's by a railroad company for people who commute to work in Nara and Osaka. The surrounding landscape used to be a gently sloping hill and the new site has the difference in level each other following the hill's undulations. The clinic is located along the main road of the town and made of steel tube structure. The cantilever of the upper floating part is max 17m long due to the "monocoque" structure that is composed of steel panel t6 and steel deck plate. The shape of the building basically reflects linearity and inclination of the main road and eventually tries to reify the missing profile of the land. The lower part contains clinic and the upper part is the doctor's study. They are connected by a neck in which there is a stairs to be a continuous one volume. Through the sky light of the clinic waiting room and the opening in the floor of the study patio people can see the activities and feel the atmospheres mutually. The study is directed to be open towards mountains at a distance. The two modes of the building are anchoring and taking off. Our intentions are to provide a useful place for people in local society through a deep-rooted architecture for one thing and to cast visions and dreams towards new world by the activated architectural image for the other thing.
