We converted an RC three-story dental clinic with a residential facility, built 39 years ago in front of Edogawa-dai Station, into a church.
Almost as old as the town of Edogawa itself, this building had been much loved by the townspeople as part of the town-scape. We attempted to keep the building’s presence in the town even after its conversion to a chapel.
The residential space – which occupied the largest part of the building yet had never been open to the public throughout the 39 years – is redesigned to be a church that can be seen through from the street outside.
This reflects the client’s intention to let the church be open to and deeply involved in the town.
