The most important element of this project was that people coming to the hospital would be relaxed. As a feature of space, In addition to the nursing room, a counter like island kitchen is set up so that you can make milk for baby in the waiting room. The kids area, which is at the center of the space, is a symbol of space and they can watch children from anywhere.
The sofa placed on the wall has a height that makes it easier for a pregnant woman to sit up, the back angle is adjusted, and the cushion hardness is adjusted so as not to be too soft.

With a focus on interior design, Riki Watanabe work spans across a wide range of professional fields such as creative direction and branding. Utilizing the knowledge and multifaceted perspectives that we have cultivated through designing commercial spaces, hospitality spaces, exhibitions, products, and other genres, we design in consideration of the way places should be, the experiences that can be gained there, and the flow of time.
