Small country municipality Kitasato Elementary School indoor athletic ground
The last update date:
In Oguni-machi working on "made with village of" *moku, individual building using local wood is seen in everywhere.
Of course we hung time for three years until stack, completion, and, in this building which was used as local community space, workshop with inhabitants and children was made for gymnasium of elementary school.
Screen which metal outer wall projects sky and nature, and is crowded.
Soft quality of wood space where indoor was covered by cedar.
Arena surrounded by gentle light from top light becomes stage bringing up tomorrow of this town.
It was elementary school gymnasium built in mountain village, but, through workshop, thought about how you would utilize this building for area in future. It functioned as passage where gallery which by putting arena between two existing school buildings divided into east and west, surrounded that tied school building group to. Furthermore, we repositioned special classroom such as home economics room and library which dispersed in school building in a mass in the east side school building and made use of area part of school clear including arena. Structure finish uses many wood from prosperous nature of the locality of forestry together. We decided to use huge trass space as high window which led natural light using box trass with cedar on roof of arena. Natural light from high window casts gentle light in the room via cylindrical light reflector, and color and strength of light gradually change depending on solar movement and weather.
