Outline

This facility serves as a gathering space for the community affected by the earthquake & tsunami. The bidding was for a package of design & build where the designer and builder work jointly to come up with the proposal. As we saw the town being restored, there was a sense of crisis that the town was being built in a dull and monolithic way. We believe design is not only about the shape or how to use the space but it’s also a method to offer most appropriate answer to the society. As such, we have adopted individual cottage style so that detail design can be done at an earlier stage.
