“As I already had a functional and rational plan, I encountered conditions which produced a mysterious deep in space, ambiguous relations between outside and inside.” explains Hironaka Ogawa. “The diversity in light and space was created accidentally by 55 cells in the Interior of the structure.”

Three treatment rooms are in a row in the middle of the grid, while offices and waiting rooms on both sides are located along. The flexibility of this layout ensures several treatment rooms at a later date to be added.

Here is a full description of the project from Hironaka Ogawa:

Chiyodanomori dental clinic

This is a dental clinic with a housing project.

The conditions were: to make the clinic and the House in a building, three individual treatment rooms and a few rooms to create that are able to be changed, in treatment rooms for the clinic in the future, and to provide, by retain his privacy the treatment area with wide spread feelings.

The customer wanted to have beautiful views of the sky. Also needed extra holes to secure enough natural light in the building; the area suffers from high winter winds and is famous for the hottest temperature recording in Japan during the summer.

First of all, I made a rule to create a 2.7 m x 2.7 m cell, which is required for individual treatments. I put the cells in the grid within a walled box and put some farms, get sunlight, by I thought about their relations with every cell.

Fifty-five cells on the level generated in this way.

The clinic and a part of the House have different ceiling heights, created by the sloping roof, and the courts vary in “different depth and produce gradations of natural light.” Therefore, there would be differences in the rooms.

You can experience various emotions in every room due to the differences in each cell height, natural lighting and volume.
