“A big house” to live in together

Einosato nursery school was built for 90 children in Hyogo, Japan. Outer wall of this wooden one-storied nursery school is made with black painted cedar clapboards. Its several rooms for children are arranged to surround playground. A one-sided stream roof put on these rooms brings not only the symbolic characteristic and spatial continuity as "a big house" but also intimacy for small children.
