Kaizuka city is located in the south of Osaka. It is a sports town that nurtured the "Witch of the Orient", Nishinbo Kaizuka, who won the women's volleyball gold medal at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
By concentrating the vertical load on the two mast columns, we created a integrated, column-free space with the pool and the gallery that is easy to watch over children.
Two mast pillars jutting out like the sails of a sailboat play a role in making this pool a familiar landmark for everyone in town.
Soft light is brought into the gallery through eaves, screens, etc. The sign is placed in the eyes of the child, designed to make it fun for children.
As soon as you enter the entrance, you can see the pool. There is no pillar in the pool and gallery, and the floor and ceiling levels are almost the same from the entrance to the pool.
Taking in a stable light from the north windows, children can take lessons in a pool full of natural light.
Annual ratio of UDI (useful daylight illuminance) from 100Lux to 2000Lux, from 9:00
Throughout the year, there are many times when the pool's required illuminance of 100 lux is satisfied in almost all areas.The south poolside is covered by gallery lighting that is lit during the day.
