- Many islands exist around Japan’s main island and Oshima is one of them with 250 populations. A fishing village creates coastal landscape where landfill extends out to form a new street alongshore. Notion of new and existing constitutes the island structure. The coastal street serves visitors and existing street runs along local residential area, as recreational and day-to-day perspective. This building is where two characteristic streets meet, welcomes visitors and adds colors to everyday-life of villagers. The building consists of rest lounge, information and exterior deck. Local wood materials are used to form the space with a skylight at top that enlightens the gathering space. The open plan enables to accept local and traditional events and guides both visitors’ and villagers’ experience.
