Reihoku Community Hall

Architect: Hitoshi Abe

Location: Reihoku-machi, Amakusa-gun , REIHOKU – Japan

Year built: 2002

Thia community hall and 207 – seat theater for a toww of 9000 persons is a 993-square-meter laminated lumber structure built on a reinforced concrete base.


The two-story building and the town by a green area, the structure has an unusual billowing exterior appearance. Though it appears rather closed, in part because of its dark local cedar cladding, it is quite open to outside light.



Inside corridors are limited to a strict minimum and an intentional ambiguity is maintained in the division between one space and another. In a sense, this ambiguity, a frequent feature of Japanese architecture and and the architect opted for giving them the most flexible space possible.
