The most important layer to Maeshima Architect‘s project is its openness to the community. By doing so, a deeper relationship can be established between the natural landscape and the people.
To encourage this relationship, the building itself is composed of a number of columns and beams structured in a very open way to provide clear visuals and accessibility. These structural supports are even covered with polycarbonate sheets that offer a faintly lighter colour tone to the building at night, creating a Japanese lantern effect. The wire mesh fence of the inner wall also improves the storage functionality, providing plenty of hanging space for tools.
