The building of Japanese Nursing Association Headquarters is newly constructed on the old site of this headquarters with addition of a lot in the back. The main theme of the design is how to realize the symbiotic harmony between the building and Omote Sando, while keeping the function and class of the public nature of the Japanese Nursing Association Headquarters. The first method is to create semi public space (intermediary space) as a pocket park which is set back from the front of the site in contradiction to the lined up shop front Facade of Omote Sando. The second method is to keep the continuation of the shopping characteristics of Harajuku by placing retail shops on the first and second floors. The third method is to create an open slit space which goes through the middle of the building in the form of steps and to place a cafe in the back. These themes reflect the creed of the Association who wishes to contribute the local community and their activities up to present.
