Profile
An architecture specialized firm in the Kamakura-area

We are not the kind of architectural firm that says, “We can take on a project anywhere in Japan! We have quite the opposite concept. We are an architectural firm that specializes in the local area. That is why we can offer one of the best performance in Kamakura, Zushi, and Hayama.

鎌倉近域エリア

Teitakusubako’s philosophy

The Residence Hive is a team of community-based architects, a rarity in Japan. We are a team of architects who have built exclusively in the Kamakura/Zushi/Hayama area, a city with a rich environment where human culture and nature coexist. This is because we love the rich environment where humanity and nature coexist, and the culture of diversity, ecology, and quality of life is deeply rooted in this city.
We believe that there is something architecture can do to further enrich life and social activities in Kamakura. By concentrating on the local area, we can maximize performance and improve the quality of life of the people living in Kamakura through the power of architecture. This is the philosophy of Residence Hive.

邸宅巣箱の理念

Achievement specializing in the Kamakura-area

We limit our construction sites to the Kamakura/Zushi/Hayama area. Although we are not a large design firm, we have more experience in this area than major firms. We have extensive expertise and experience in dealing with the unique climate of the area, knowledge of complex regulations, and connections with local construction companies.。

エリアマップ

Design Firm Profile

We specialize in residences in Kamakura and Zushi Hayama. And we also specialize in buildings that are based on the concept of a residential space. For example, we are not good at commercial business hotels, but we are good at villa-like accommodations. For housing complexes, we are better at townhouses surrounded by greenery than high-rise condominiums in the city. For galleries, we are good at garden galleries surrounded by greenery rather than urban galleries closed to the outside. We propose residences, villas, hotels, and galleries that take advantage of the unique environment of Kamakura, Zushi, and Hayama.

早坂 直貴

Naoki Hayasaka

Licensed Architect (1st grade), fAppraiser of old Japanese house, Engineer of old Japanese house reconstruction, Master of passive house

For a total of 10 years, he worked as a project manager for Atelier Tsuyoshi Tane Architects and other design firms in Japan and abroad. During the three years he was based in Paris, he spent his time visiting all the masterpieces of architecture and design in Europe, and the aesthetics of craftsmanship he experienced there became the basis of his current design philosophy. The spaces are characterized by a world view that blends European aesthetics with Kamakura-like virtues. He is also a specialist in residential design, having completed over 40 residential projects throughout his career.
17′- Teitakusubako Co. Ltd
At the 10-year mark of his career, he returned from Paris to start his own business. He established a community-based design firm in Kamakura. Kamakura is a city with a very rich nature and culture like Paris. However, the city has been overdeveloped with buildings that can be found anywhere in Japan, and its “Kamakura-ness” is rapidly disappearing today. We want to preserve Kamakura’s townscape and make Kamakura a place where wonderful people want to gather. Teitakusubako was founded with these ideals, and we will contribute to this goal through architectural methods.
14′-17′ TSUYOSHI TANE ARCHITECTS
He studied under Tsuyoshi Tane (a Japanese architect working in Paris). In addition to global projects around the world, he has also worked as a project manager for residential projects in Japan, such as the House in Todoroki Valley. His work is always created to give form to something intangible, the memory of the place. This approach, which emphasizes the importance of history, is particularly appreciated in old cities such as Paris. We believe that this approach is also effective for Kamakura. We designig buildings that are connected to the memory of the place they stand on, rather than designing homogeneous buildings that cut off history.
14′-17′ Moved to Paris, France
He moved to Europe to further pursue architectural design. I spent my weekends visiting masterpieces in Paris, London, Rome, Barcelona, Porto, Vienna, Prague, Mexico, Morocco, and the rest of the world (I’m sure there are not many architects have visited so many!). This background of architectural experience in Europe has influenced Teitakusubako’s approach to craftsmanship and the use of unique materials.
斧田 裕太

Yuta Onoda

Licensed Architect (1st grade)

Former project manager of Tezuka Architects.He specializes in designing joyful living spaces where families can spend time together in a peaceful atmosphere. His work on “House at Railroad Crossing” (selected in SD Review 2021, etc.), in which he worked from planning to actual design to renovate his grandfather’s house into a community space, has been highly praised for its connection between residential design and the creation of community spaces.
19’- Teitakusubako
He joined in “Teitakusubako” when he designed ” A House with a Sea Breeze” in the natural environment of Kamakura-yama, which he made a complete turnaround and focused on interacting with real nature. This experience was very fresh and pleasant for him. In addition, the owner, Mr. K, would work after coming back from an early morning surfing, and on weekends, he would enjoy home parties with friends under the greenery, truly enjoying the life of Kamakura. therfore, he wished to spend his life as such a “work and life balance that interacts with nature”, he moved to this area with his family.
14’-19’ Tezuka Architects
While he had been involved in the design of large-scale facilities in his previous job, he had desired to design something closer to human scale, such as a residential project in the near future. After he had finished the project he was in charge of, he began working for Takaharu and Yui Tezuka, who were known for their residential and kindergarten designs. It was a busy design firm with more than 20 projects in progress (including Roof house and the famous Fuji kidergarten.He spent his days in the hustle and bustle, and working on projects ranging from houses such as “A house with sea breez” and “H Residence”, to children’s facilities and their furniture production, to the Phase IV construction of “Fuji Kindergarten”. In the process, he learned how to design with simple details, and he discussed thoroughly with the craftsmen to create high-quality buildings. These experiences as an architect in the Tezuka Architects have shaped his skills and attitudes today.

Decent work realized through local-based business

 SDGs目標8に掲げられた「働きがいも経済成長も」。
我々は地域密着を活かして建築家の働き方改革に取り組んでいます。

かつて設計事務所といえば「今日で徹夜何日目?」というくらい過酷な業界でした。それも現在では改善されつつあり、テレワークやフレックスタイムによる多様でゆとりある働き方も増えてきました。それは設計者のプライベートを充実させる良い面がある一方で、案件へのコミットメントが低下して建物のクオリティが低下するという課題を解決できていません。…readmore ▼

建築家の多くは、「できるだけラクしたい!」というよりは「手間を掛けていい建物をつくりたい!」というマインドを持っています。しかし一方で、出産・子育ての合間の限られた時間内では、十分に力を発揮できない現状があります。いくらITツールで効率化しても、緻密な図面を描いて、きちんと打合せをし、気遣いある現場監理をするにはどうしても時間が足りないのです。設計が大好きだからこそ、時間的な制限で案件にコミットしきれないことにやるせない気持ちを持つ。そうして中途半端がよくないと、才能ある建築家が設計業を断念することも少なくありません。

建築家の「働きやすさ」と「手間を掛けていい建築をつくりたいというマインド」はどう両立できるのか。
そのために小さな設計事務所だからこそできることは何なのか。
こうして「建築エリアを限定することで生産性向上を図り、建築家のQOLを高める」というビジョンを描き、邸宅巣箱はスタートしました。あまりにも単純、だからこそ強力なコンセプトです。建築エリアをここまで徹底的に絞り込んでいる設計事務所はないでしょう。

まず建築家は、ITがどれだけ発展しても立地という物理的制約からは逃れられません。実力ある建築家ほど日本全国から声がかかり、業務時間の多くを移動時間に費やさざるをえません。ここをテコ入れしたのです。

では想像してみてください。

グーグルマップを見ながら土地勘のない現場を探すのでなく、そもそも現場が近所だったなら。
新幹線とバスを乗り継いでようやく現場に到着するのでなく、すぐ自転車で現場に到着できたなら。
自治体ごとに建築条例を一から調べるのでなく、最初からいつもの建築条例が頭に入っていたなら。
毎度はじめましての工務店を探すのでなく、もともと信頼できる地元工務店のツテがあったなら。

そうしたら調整業務や移動時間は、どれだけ短縮されることか。
建築家ならこのシンプルな施策による圧倒的な生産性向上効果を掴めるでしょう。

マクロ視点でみれば、これは少子高齢化でますます限られてくる設計者の人的リソースを、効率的に再配置することなのです。そして広くは、SDGs目標13「気候変動に具体的な対策を」(移動圧縮によるCO2の削減)や、目標11「住み続けられるまちづくりを」(地域への帰属意識の高い建築家にの育成)など、持続可能性にもつながるひとつのアイデアです。

建築家の、自分時間・家族時間・仕事時間のすべて良し。邸宅巣箱は地域密着によってそれを達成し、建築家のディーセントワークを叶えるロールモデルを目指しています。


地域密着で為す建築家のSDGs

Local contribution in Kamakura-area

我々は地域にとってもプラスになる活動を心掛けています。例えば鎌倉市景観整備機構に所属してまちづくりのアドバイザーを務めたり、地域活動を積極的に支援したり、建築をテーマとしたイベントを企画することもあります。そして何より地場の工務店や職人との連携してつくる建築は、地域資源の循環そして建築技術の次世代継承を果たすものです。オーナーにとっては、邸宅巣箱に依頼することが、間接的な地域貢献につながると言えるでしょう。我々はオーナーと地域の架け橋となれる設計事務所を目指しています。
