NAGOMI

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Welfare Facilities

INSPIRATION:
The word Nagomi means to ease the mind in Japanese.The shape of the building was boldly modified to accommodate a variety of functions, including a cafeteria, interior and exterior event spaces, a gallery, and relaxation areas that are easily accessible even in winter.The design of this building is based on the concept of the factory's rechargeable battery cells, and is in harmony with the surrounding landscape and nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The new welfare facilities was designed to meet the needs of a growing workforce. The new welfare facilities was designed to provide a more relaxed atmosphere. The design of the new building is based on the concept of a curved building with a sloping roof. We proposed a large space with a characteristic sloping roof and curved building.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The goal was to create a facility that is easy to use and useful for everyone, with a traffic line that is easily accessible even in rough weather, a cafeteria that provides a place for employees to relax and interact, a fitness center to improve health, and a plaza that can accommodate various events.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design of the building is based on the concept of a circular building with an eaves along the approach from the surrounding factory buildings. The trussed structure of both wings makes the cafeteria a large space. The ceiling of the cafeteria was designed to contrast with the planar design of the factory building, and the lines of the wood material were set in a random pattern to create a light and warm space enveloped by the wood material.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Floor 2 Area 1691square meters

TAGS:
Nagomi, Welfare Facilities, Miyagi prefecture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In order to determine the shape of the building, we analyzed the seasonal wind direction, snow accumulation, sunshine, etc., and compared several patterns of building orientation, green areas, and pathways to determine the most reasonable layout and shape.

CHALLENGE:
In order to realize diverse functions and long flow lines economically, we came up with the idea of a series of simple single-span sections. The roof shape is designed to prevent seasonal winds and snow from the northwest side in winter, the structural plan is designed to realize an open space, and the air conditioning plan provides a comfortable environment even in a large space.
