A complex facility supporting community healthcare and welfare
This is a “complex facility supporting community healthcare and welfare” that provides four functions: a medical association building, a nursing school operated by a medical association, a clinic open at night and on holidays, and a home-visit nursing station. The building’s exterior was designed by incorporating elements of the city’s traditional design, in reference to the images of dark walls and lattice windows characterized by vertical stripes often found along historical streets representing the old city, as well as the design of floats for the Kawagoe Festival. Also incorporated are such detailed designs in consideration of improving the indoor environment as the louver tiles likened to the lattice windows for keeping out the late afternoon sun, large windows on the north side to take skylight into the rooms, and other contrivances. By planting trees to give us a sense of the changing seasons along the site boundary, the premises was planned to be in harmony with the surrounding environment.
