The Beam House is a residence in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Hugo Kohno Architect Associates. The building is located in a narrow area with a gallery in the main building and a residential area on the second and third floors. The client requested the gallery to have a glass curtain wall to get a good view from the street and a single open space to ensure flexibility for future use.
Therefore, customers need to enter the second floor residential area separately. Due to its wooden structure, load-bearing walls are required between the beams, and the lower floors require a particularly large load-bearing wall. The architect uses a wooden gantry frame at the front of the building, so there is no need to use a load-bearing wall.
By inserting an open steel truss frame into the center of the extension beam, the architect can avoid the use of thick beams to restrain the space, but allow the field lines to easily pass through them. Depending on the strength requirements and the intended use of each area, they changed the form of the truss in a number of ways, changing the height of the ceiling and creating a more free and open space.
