This project is the color scheme for public restoration housings in Kahoku area, Ishinomaki-city. Since 400 public and private restoration houses are built in this area, we tried to establish townscape which is harmonious with surroundings to draw up district plan and design guideline. To 200 public houses, considering the relation with surrounding mountains and river, 6 patterns of exterior color scheme are set.
In October 2017, the construction of the first section of public restoration housing had been completed and long-awaited occupancy has started. It has been 6 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake. From the houses people already moved into, the promise of human lives is spreading out. The second and third section of the construction will be started and whole construction of this area will be completed by 2018.
To new community formation and fondness of this area, we published a guidebook “Kamakura Techo” and held a workshop with cooperation from the one-time building firm association.
