Column and slab

Katsuya Fukushima and Hiroko Tominaga of FT Architects have completed a residence called Column and Slab in Tokyo, Japan.The three-storey building is situated on a narrow 5 x 14 metre site.Eight concrete columns pierce the interior and support two 100mm-thick floors, which cantilever out at the sides.The third storey is constructed from timber. “The grid frame is modernist, while the columns and the raised floors are traditional Japanese forms,” say the architects.
