A project to create a new station plaza that would play a leading role in the community activities, centered round an old storehouse, an Oya stone masonry, which was to be preserved.

Debris of Oya stone from the storehouse are reused and combined with steel plates arranged diagonally in order to create attempts to achieve transparency by making the most of the material’s texture.
