Hongodai Christ Church School & Nursery

Architect:  Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Location: Yokohama, Japan

Year built: 2010

The Hongodai Christ Church School & Nursery is a complex of church school (2nd floor) and nursery (1st floor) administered by Protestant Christ church. The premises are located at a greenery area in Yokohama city surrounded by fields, parks and hills in the neighborhood. It has been planned in the open space such that places for children to stay are mixed into forest with rich natural environment.




This school is a mixture of indoor and outdoor environments. Takeshi Hosaka Architects selected wooden construction as the ideal for children from infant to senior in high school to stay. In a simple grid building, steel frames are adopted to five courtyards to bear earthquake load. Since pillars of solid steel are fit between wooden pillar and sash, their existence is successfully eliminated without any sense of discomfort while they are exposed without being hidden.
