Text description provided by the architects.
We have created a place where people with physical disabilities have the capacity and centripetal force to lead a calm nursing life.It is a nursing facility that is responsible for local nursing.The hexagonal architecture has a radial arrangement of rooms centered on the hall, providing a floor plan with centripetal properties.
Beautiful light and a view of the trees enter from the atrium of the central hall, creating a comfortable and inclusive space.All rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors face the hall. If you stand in the middle of the hall, you can grasp the situation of patients, nurses, volunteer staff, and everyone else.
You can hear your voice and communicate.The site is adjacent to an arterial road with many traffic, and it is not a beautiful environment by nature. By making the ground higher than the road, we designed it so that you can not hear the sound of annoying cars, you can not see the annoying cars, and only the beautiful scenery can be seen from inside the building.
By protecting the bad environment and taking in only the good environment, we have realized a space that is inclusive by reconnecting the relationship with the surrounding environment.
The gap in the site created by arranging the hexagonal building on the triangular site became a buffer zone with the neighboring buildings, and the irregular external space became a margin to mediate the surrounding environment and this building.
We designed an inclusive place where you can live a peaceful life at the end of your life.
In addition, we designed a space with centripetal force, which is the base of the nursing life and the base of the heart, because the nursing life that is mentally impaired requires a heart..
