Outline

It is a residence, but an important place to support local medical care. The owner works at a hospital where many medical trainees come to stay, but they stay at hotels, which is not a good fit for the community. Here, about 20 people can stay and get together. This is a non-residential house that will make people like this town, foster future leaders, and create a relationship with the community.

Evaluation

This house which planned by a couple who work in a hospital was highly rated for being able to be an accommodation for trainee doctors. Not just one or two, it can accommodate up to 20 people. Furthermore, the house is built on land surrounded by the beautiful nature of Shima. Some of those trainee doctors may want to work in Shima. We highly admire this house as a great attempt to change a private house into a somewhat public house. This can serve as a good example of vitalization of a regional community.
