Building of facility friendly to persons with various disabilities
The National Rehabilitation Center for Persons with Disabilities, founded in 1979 to support independence and social participation of disabled persons, is taking a lead role as a core organization in rehabilitation of persons with disabilities. The improvement work of the existing facility, which was built more than 30 years ago and has significantly deteriorated, consisted of reconstruction of the hospital, main building, and auditorium and seismic retrofitting of accommodations for the existing inmates. The layout plan provided the "Inclusive Street," a two-storied atrium that serves as the central axis of the Center, on the north-south axis connecting with the existing facilities for the sake of efficient functional collaboration of the dispersed facilities and supply of cross-sectional services, realizing a collaborative layout of the new hospital, main building, and auditorium. The Street connected to all the facilities serves as a traffic line axis for users, staff members, and physical distribution and also as an information traffic line connected to the central waiting hall of the hospital and the place of exchange, exhibit and information corner, and general reception desk of the main building and auditorium, planned as a place that provides communications and comfort.
