Located in the middle of Nagano prefecture, “533House” settled in a cold region. The average temperature is around 27°C in summer and 7°C in winter; sometimes drops to -10°C in minimum.  The most characteristic point of “533House” is its inclined fixed windows along the southern facade. In winter, they allow sunlight to shine on the larger part of the floor.

Inariyama Special Education School in Nagano Prefecture, Japan by Atsushi Kitagawara Architects

Inariyama Special Education School (School for mentally and physically challenged students)

We proposed the concept “school as a town”. The “town”-concept comprises two different meanings: The school itself is a town as well as it connects to the surrounding town. We designed several school buildings that are – just like a real town – surrounded by courtyards, open spaces, and small vegetable fields, in order to stimulate activities of children and the entire community.
