This distribution facility is one of several overland shipping centers that the company operates in the Chubu region. Although the lot is located next to a traffic-heavy trunk road, a quiet neighborhood of houses and fields stretches out behind it. For that reason, we worked hard to minimize the visual impact of the facility on the neighborhood.

We turned the walkway along the main road into a comfortable pedestrian space by building a wall of caged stone and greenery alongside it. To ensure the building blends into the surrounding landscape dotted with small private woods, we planted abundant young trees around the property.Our goal was to create a facility that would not only be a center for shipping but also for improving the environment of the neighborhood.
