Kamaishi: Public Housing Development for Reconstruction

Supporting speedy reconstruction and new urban development in Kamaishi City

Kaminakashimacho, Kamaishi

We produced 210 reconstructed public housing units on a site owned by Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation. These were developed in a short timeframe and at low cost in order to provide housing to earthquake disaster victims as quickly as possible. We are also fostering the community by setting up locations for residents to interact with one another, and also "look out for" the elderly and those living on their own. In addition to efforts for earthquake reconstruction, we are currently working on solutions to community issues, including a nursery school currently being built.
