Outline

This pharmacy is located in Okinawa. At present, buildings of non-wooden account for more than 80% in Okinawa by the damage of termites and typhoon. As a result, a precutting factory of wood was lost, a carpenter was able to erect a wooden building that also plummeted. However, Okinawa is hot and humid area, wooden is suitable in terms of thermal environment. So, we selected a masonry structure of glued laminated timber brick. It is not need to professional carpenters. Four cores of a masonry wall support the structure. The characteristic screen is composed of originally designed Hana-block.
