Medical center in Azabu University
In this project our attempt was to reconsider typical spatial composition of research institution.
We divided this institution in three zones, and reversed placement of corridor and rooms.
The first zone is interior space containing main circulation route and refreshing area, where you can feel wind, light view of the surrounding nature.
The second zone is exterior space enveloped in wire-mesh screen. It contains circulation route, refreshing area and service area.
The third zone is for research laboratories, and its environment is carefully controlled by automatic environment control system. By sandwiching the research zone with the first and second zones, we intended to provide open and pleasant work environment for this institution.
