We designed a parking area (PA) for the highway connecting Chubu International Airport and Nagoya City. It runs along Chita Peninsula, known for its abundant nature, so visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

A large wooden eave welcomes visitors inside and extends through the space, joining restaurants by famous chefs, shops displaying local products, as well as rest rooms for weary travelers.

The furniture is composed of wooden planks with a motif of trees, so that the nature of the peninsula can be experienced from inside as well as outside.
