Outline

“Sakonyama Minna no Niwa (everyone’s garden)” is an advanced case of a communal plaza, that the housing management association facilitated renovation of its own common property within a housing regeneration project. Upon the park design, we aimed to create a place for various generations to be able to stay together, to welcome younger generations with their small children, while elderlies living alone continue their calm and healthy livelihoods. Various features are dotted all over the plaza for every residents to enjoy the place the way they want to. These features include a wide grassed open space for yoga and picnic, a decking stage for concerts, benches in the tree shade for club activities of a game of “Go” etc., and a pizza oven for an outdoor party.
