Outline

After 60 years have passed from construction, old rental housing complexes (so called “Danchi”) are facing challenges to fit present needs. At the same time, the community, abundant nature and lifestyles bred through the years have also become precious parts of the value of Danchi. “Kura-chic” is a concept of renovating Danchi not by a full renewal but by adding new tastes to the interior while maintaining the good values as they are. The ideas of “Kura-chic” realizes the reduction of construction waste, which offers a solution to the sustainable development of rental housing.
