Each units are connected by the oval corridor, and they are located to be able to watch the life and activity of the children through a surrounded courtyard. A group living unit is the house where 6 or 7 children live as a family. Two group living units are connected and composed of two families. We design the dining room with high side-light like outside space, and design the outdoors-like atmosphere by the wall made by clapboard of red cedar. The dining room are surround by children’s private rooms, and the children can watch each other easily. The warm light leaks out from the high sidelight, and makes the warm atmosphere for the children who come back to their houses in the night.

The hall for regional exchange (2nd floor of the office working unit) formed a big space by the wooden lattice beams. The outside aluminum eaves (the office working unit) block the summer sunlight, at the same time, the eaves make the shadow to
the building outer wall.

The training unit for parents and children consisted of 3 houses, and we design the atmosphere like a heartful family home.

We design these houses where the children live happily……
