K8 awarded 2016 Detail inside prize

The 2016 DETAIL inside prize was recently awarded to FBA’s K8 building in Kyoto.


Excerpt from the jury’s comments:
“Inside and outside are mutually dependent, and boundaries dissolve. The staircase serves as a continuous vertical meeting space with expansions at the landings, thereby creating a new type of space. The building […] makes the narrow plot on which it is built appear surprisingly generous […] Dark surfaces create an elegant contemporary room atmosphere that reminds us of the traditional temples in Kyoto, and which contrast with the glowing wood tones. The details are minimised to the point of invisibility, in order not to detract in any way from the conceptual approach.” 
Out of 337 projects from 42 countries, FBA’s K8 building won one of four prizes.
A symposium will be held in Berlin on 11 November. You can check out the details and register here.
