Harvest Medical Welfare College

This medical welfare college is located in front of Himeji station. This building is considered as not just a medical welfare college but also an information center about medical and welfare for neighborhood. Therefore, the entrance lounge is used not only as student’s communication space but also people’s counseling space and the auditorium is also used as rehabilitation and eurhythmics lecture space.

Its design theme is “reflection of various color ”. The building uses six primary colors in interior, exterior, furniture and signs. The composition of these colors reflects embracing diversity that we regard as the primal concept of medical and welfare. The frontal facade consists of the composition of primal colors. The checker board patterned steel porous folded plates layered in front of it make the facade rich and ephemeral.
