Shitennojigakuen Elementary School
This recently completed school is located in Osaka, Japan on the old home field of professional baseball team Kintestsu Buffaloes.

The elementary school is the first completed construction in a series of educational facilities planned for the site.

Throughout the building the architects have used bold primary colours to define areas within the elementary school in keeping with the clients request for a ‘childishness’ within the design.

The school’s classrooms are arranged around a central courtyard, allowing natural daylight to penetrate the work-spaces, while providing views out on to the playing fields and countryside.
