Textual content description supplied by the architects. This nursery faculty for 90 college students named “TESORO” (that means treasure field in Italian) is situated in a residential neighborhood within the metropolis of Fukushima.
With the intention to create an setting by which kids can play freely, we proposed consolidating their non-public highway into the location. Whereas sustaining the operate as an method for autos on the bottom, we might put nursery rooms above the highway, thereby securing area for a big, open-air play space within the middle of low -story constructing.
This structure opens east for an awesome view of the magnificent mountains. With interconnected circulation routes weaving collectively inside and exterior areas, the constructing itself is sort of a large play construction incorporating a slide, a climbing wall, and staircases of varied sizes. And an undulating concrete wall pierced by quite a few holes wraps across the constructing, enhancing safety and privateness. Along with this sturdy bolstered concrete, supplies embrace picket wainscotting inside and in high-visibility exterior areas, and easy-to-maintain Galvalume roofing and siding in areas uncovered to blowing snow.
The design additionally contains as-yet unused exterior areas that sooner or later is perhaps websites for rooftop vegetable beds or a futsal court docket, whereas the outside flooring will be transformed into wooden decks. On this approach, we hope that the college because it stands now represents not its peak state however quite a place to begin for employees to work towards goals and objectives in a constructing they love over the following 5 or ten years.
