Kajima Design creates urban farm in central Kyoto

Kyoto Yaoichi Honkan
is not a simple building, it is a totally new concept intending to bring the unlikely combination of agriculture and urbanism together. Set in Kyoto’s central Rokkau area, Kajima Design’s project targets problematic issues of Japan’s agriculture, and provides an alternative solution to improve the country’s food self-sufficiency. And it does so in an extremely dense metropolitan area, without intruding much into the traditional, concrete-ruled cityscape.

The building features two floors of serving and shopping area, where customers can choose from a rich and fresh vegetable and fruit selection. The third floor was transformed into a rooftop farm, where all the goods are grown, and it also includes a restaurant facing the garden. This way, the complex fulfils its mission to bring producers, sellers, and consumer to a single platform and provide a chance for interaction between these actors that rarely meet otherwise. In order to avoid an unfamiliar green scene come into picture in downtown Kyoto, the layout is set back from the road frontage, to isolate the farm section. The rest of the design, however, makes use of the locale’s givens like the depth of eaves, sunlight, natural airflow, and well-water, Kajima Design therefore managed to establish a new direction of urban gardening, where city and nature are treated with equal measures.
