using tiles sourced locally and seen in the architecture around town, the building is defined by its wedge shape body and slanted roof, meanwhile the center is left open for a small garden and the entrance into the facility. TSC architects conceived the building to lead eyes from the open space to the sky and neighboring shinto shrine. in hopes to invoke a peaceful ambiance to patients waiting to be treated, the interior is also designed as an extension to the scenery outside with a garden integrated into the waiting room.
