Revising the Form of Special Nursery Home

The site is surrounded by luxuriant green forest, which provides a relaxing atmosphere to the users. The home consists of two types of bedrooms; conventional multiple bedrooms and private rooms, so that the facility can respond to the changing needs of the users. Also the users and their families can choose rooms that suit their health states. Facing the entrance hall that is placed at the center of the building is a spacious garden, which is enjoyed by both users and visitors.
