Outline

Not just a place to live, there are people who work and do business. Complex architecture where outside people gather. It consists of an open space , a bakery & cafe, a coworking space, and the rental units. In order to regenerate the community , not just a collective housing, we aimed to realize a place where various people interact and create new value.

Evaluation

Every town is made up of people who live, work and do business. This project executes and realizes town development through architecture. The architects themselves have engaged in the planning, designing and management so that they could feed back what they had learned through the various activities including attracting tenants and building the community, into the architectural design. Such synergistic effect has created a new hub in town. The optimally simple concrete structure is well suited to be in the background of rich activity, consistently creating an energetic flow of people coming and going in the town. This project has reminded us once again that architecture is for bringing out the attractive side of people.
