Text description provided by the architects. NOIE -cooperative house- is a Tokyo Cooperative house with eleven dwelling units which color the townscape individually.

Designing the relationship of collectivity and individuality.

A cooperative house with eleven dwelling units located in the suburb of western Tokyo. Firstly, skeleton plan was provided to the potential residents. Infill design was developed based on this skeleton frame. Under such scheme, the challenge was to develop the space dynamically through interactivity of the skeleton and infill design instead of simply adjusting the infill design into the skeleton frame.

The Personality of Houses Colors the Townscape

A unique fan shaped site suddenly appears among the houses as you walk through 20 meters long approach, which is the symbolic gateway that leads visitors to the town “NOIE”. “NOIE” is composed of town-house style buildings that surround the alley where residents can drive their cars. The layout is complex and houses are connected to each other which resemble the “machiya” style.  Steel sash is used for the opening of the building that faces the alley, providing the flexibility on composition of the floor level.

Through this design, the unique composition of each houses directly appear in the façade and shapes the townscape. Inadvertent aggregation of the uniqueness and characteristic of residents and their lifestyle realized by flexible designing is what creates the rich and colorful townscape of NOIE.
