Entry Description

This nursery school named “TESORO” (meaning treasure box in Italian) is located in Fukushima.

By uniting sites and roads, rooms could be put above the road to secure a large courtyard, while maintaining the function as an approach for vehicles on the ground.

Opening east for a great view of the mountain, the building itself is like a giant play structure incorporating a slide, a climbing wall, and various staircases, with interconnected circulation routes weaving together inside and outside spaces. And an undulating gray wall with many holes wraps around it enhancing security and privacy.
