Dokkyo Medical University (phase1)Back to Projects list
The chain of gardens that surround this dormitory for nursing students turns it onto a living environment where the students can unwind from the physical and mental stress that their training entails. Three key landscape elements give the facility its unique character and strengthen its visual continuity and connectivity. The green of plants symbolizes calmness in everyday life; the white of floors and walls represent reliability and devotion; and the clover shape symbolizes good fortune. The roof garden with its view of the mountains is a place for the students to gather and talk.
