Outline

Relocation and reconstruction project of Kawawa nursery school, which is known for it's environment creation where children can play voluntarily. The environment creation of the new school building and it's surrounding forest, is designed to allow the school to continue and enhance it's nursing philosophy within it's new location/space. Furthermore it is the base design for the school to become widely known for it's focus on environment creation, throughout it's future nursing activities. Arranged the placing plan so that the building encloses the garden, which matches the site shape that is surrounded with undulating forests. In the nursery room, large openings are designed on the garden and adjacent building sides to encourage room connections and for natural ventilation.
