Outline

This is a plan for temporary housing and community space after the Kumamoto earthquake. Conventional temporary housing poses problems such as inadequate insulation between housing units and lack of storage space. Therefore these issues were resolved by installing furniture using the depth of the structural panels between housing units. By prefabricating wooden structural panels, the construction period at the site was shortened. A community space consisting of a small room and an open air deck was created by building a roof over the space in between the two buildings.
