This is a training institute in a Tokyo suburb where a countryside landscape still remains. The characteristic of this facility consists of an institute block which is like a simple barn shape and a villa like accommodation block. The stripe patterned landscape design is enhanced undulation of the field. The exposed pre-cast concrete vault roof characterizes the barnlike institute block which also exists as a main interior theme of this project. It is a total design, from architecture to furniture. The building is not only designed to represent modern architecture, but also to represent the calm flow of time.
