Disaster Recovery Public Housing
for Osakishirahama in Kamaishi

釜石市尾崎白浜地区災害復興公営住宅

2015

To create not an isolated group but a part of village

Osakishirahama is fishing village located on the north coast of Osaki peninsula in Kamaishi city, Iwate. Planning site is the vacant space of closed elementary school of Osaki, which was dismantled for disaster recovery of public housing. At fishing village in Kamaishi peninsula area, architectural assemblages of houses and barns are generally stand side by side responding to the shape of land, direction of the sun and wind with “rotated layout”. If we planned parallel houses in giant developed land in a typical way, the site would be isolated area like an “island” in village. Therefore, our proposal is to layout 2 houses of 5 houses in rotated position so that the new houses can fit the existing village.

“Rotated layout” to watch and to be watched

When we design a living place for elderly residents, especially single person, we thought that it is important to create a watching care among dwellers. Each house has entrance porch with roof. In a little rotated position, we can sense the atmosphere of other houses by seeing the entrance porch and residential scene of neighbors, which can support to rebuild the community by “to watch and to be watched” in natural behavior of living.
5 houses are located along a circle around the small open space as cul-de-sac because the approach path reaches to center of the site due to land shape. If the 5 houses are located parallel, exterior space will be homogeneous, then inhospitable place are produced. Only rotating 2 houses make a big difference to the impression of the exterior space, however, no difference to the building cost.
“Rotated layout” enabled adjusting multiple factors in order to respond to several strenuous demands on the limited site.
