Kashiwara City Hall

設計コンセプト

Because the Kashiwara City Hall is located on the high-standard embankment of the Yamato River, it features the Kashiwara Terrace, an outdoor space on the second floor level connected by a large staircase from the ground level as a temporary evacuation site in case of flooding. The terrace can also be accessed from the civic activity area on the second floor of the government building, and will serve as a new place for citizens to relax and interact with nature, enjoying the breeze from the Yamato River, the sparkling surface of the river, and the setting sun over the Furuichi ancient tombs.
In addition, in order to incorporate the view of the Yamato River that extends to the west and to reduce the heat load from the western sun, we responded by combining shielding with large vertical louvers that match the angle of incidence of high solar radiation in summer and openness with horizontal windows made of Low-E glass.
