Public facilities and education facilities gather in Oe district in center of Kumamoto-shi.
On move reconstruction, we further developed function as "the immediate nature period, special hospital" of large intestine anus disease, and the making of hospital which permanently contributed to community medicine for the future was demanded.
We accepted nature and aimed at the making of hospital such as high "open space" of publicity open to area that promoted interchange with people and were conscious of role to tie "people and people, area and people" with high quality medical environment.
It was art police's first hospital architecture chosen by the cause, proposal of new theme of art police where we invited the 25th anniversary to to "join difference, person naturally".



Building summary

This facility is project of move new construction of Takano Hospital who is special hospital of large intestine anus disease that opened a Diet session in 1982.
New hospital accepted nature, and people who were various in concept by the making of hospital such as high "open space" of open local publicity to promote interchange with people not "building" by function serious consideration gathered and aimed at facilities which was got close to to local people such as "big house" which promoted interchange to talk about.
Garden of various scales is located in each level everywhere in building, and, on the road side of the front part of building, garden such as park where anyone can drop in at can enjoy environment where patient, family, the staff is calm. In addition, we establish statement corner and lounge in ward corridor and raise environmental selectivity by user and promote interchange of people.
We adopt "four beds of rooms of private room" where each bed has inherent window, and all patients can look at the outside, and four beds room of ward enables that we control sense of distance with external environment by oneself.
We use many wood for interior and furniture and keep in mind for the making of gentle space surrounded to tree. In visitor's room or mortuary, we took in regional Japanese paper and cedar board processing materials and intended to make use of charm of Kumamoto.
With effectiveness as hospital, we establish substation in center of gravity of sickroom group in addition to the staff station of ward and shorten nursing line of flow. Lower floors with medical treatment section were simple, and they paid off line of flow in consideration for plainness.
As the preparation for disaster, we adopt Kyushu, seismically isolated structure by iron spherical surface sliding shisho again first as medical facilities. In addition, we are equipped with emergency generator of operation storage for 48 hours, and medical act becomes facility which can continue at disaster.
We pray for new hospital becoming new landmark to become ground of heart for user and area.

Thought (February 27, 2014) of designer to Kumamoto art police "Takano Hospital new design"

State of design meeting



Hirotaka Kawashima (public building drawing office)


 In postwar reconstruction in medical facilities domain that began in the 1950s, "hospital architecture" was's two biggest low cost public buildings admired equally with "school architecture". It was from need of rapid increase product to support national health care service system (in meaning called free access) that continued attracting attention from all over the world in the present called "the universal care". Here, idea such as "publicity" and "individual treatment-related respect" was relatively placed in low rank, and it was said that functionality and economy had top priority. We may say that it is the times when we couldn't but give priority to them.
 In the 80s, the trend of thought of reflecting on itself in viewpoint, viewpoint of "publicity" called medical facilities in area of "individual treatment-related respect" such as privacy and comfort begins to send out buds in medical community. Words to have "only plain meaning" were made motto, and words itself such as "amenity" that "was opened" was produced excessively as if magnificent, decorative stairwell entrance space was answer to the motto. We have followed the same path with tide of bubble. Last; do not intend to, so to speak, say that myself put the body outside the second tide. However, we intended to do manufacturing while feeling quite a few question while pursuing the real intention of this "plain meaning".
 Takano Hospital project is Kumamoto art police's first "hospital architecture" program. In new theme to "harmonize with difference, person naturally", we decided participation when we might pursue new possibility to be able to be also known as third. It was about time when suggestion substance as "hospital architecture" was hardening. We were introduced contemporary representative Jun Yanagisawa from structure house Kei Suzuki (A.S.A) who was one of the partners. It was introduction from Suzuki in meaning to raise viewpoint of "publicity". Collaboration with Yanagisawa is stimulating every day and is deepening conviction to be able to show image of new hospital architecture which we were not able to create only in conventional us.

Jun Yanagisawa (contemporary)


 It was the biggest reason that there was polite invitation whether you did not do together from Kawashima of professional combination architecture drawing office of hospital design in what would participate in Kumamoto art police Takano Hospital proposal, but there was not a little process concerned with from school days for Kumamoto art police business. We are concerned with basic design and conduct design of message hemp housing complex (1994) for the graduate school era (Kazunari Sakamoto laboratory), and theme (apartment complex study) of own master's thesis comes under a big influence of art police, too. In addition, it attends society and is foreign countries, but it is in charge of design of hospice, and this is because but Japan felt charm in thought and concept of this art police "to open naturally, and to join people" very much sometime. Though it was private hospital, there was remark in "more public attempt" from Kawashima, and proposal plan seems to have hardened at a stretch. It is settling basic design, but, anyway, it is realizing that, anyway, patience and enthusiasm more than that are necessary for design of hospital now only to be taught by rotation every day. We show a stronger feeling to have to realize image of new hospital which all people who were concerned with this project when it passed for 20 years for not only moment when hospital was further completed but also ten years realize this project, and I think that it was really good and area and people of Kumamoto are proud of above all every day now than time when we participated in proposal.
