Text description provided by the architects. This building is located in a recently gentrified residential area on a hill to the south of Osaka.

The original assembly hall was built 40 years ago on the outskirts of this residential area, and so the city decided to rebuild it in the center, where there is a school, park and small retail outlets. A symbolic building was requested.

In this old new-residential area, Western and Japanese styles in old and new sit next to each other, the residents are older, and the various kinds of buildings form a chaotic town scape.

I designed a place for everyone to gather, something endearing for everyone and a symbol for everyone.

I used Japanese simplicity, the environment and nature as factors and worked to create a simple, quiet and balanced form in timber.

Since this area is located close to the forest, I decided to use local timbers for the structure and interior, and as this is an assembly hall I used durable materials for the exterior and roof.

The roof structure is exposed with angled beams to create a dynamic and open space.
