2012年に竣工したおきなの杜(PROJECT:18)が繁盛し、今回はこれまでにない「歩く」という行為に特化した新たなデイサービスが計画された。政令指定都市の中で最も高齢化率の高い北九州市は、他都市よりも一足先に高齢化社会を体験し、意外にも高齢者は元気だということが分かってきた。同時にそれぞれの個性に応じて沢山のメニューがある方が豊かだということも分かってきた。ここではまだまだ元気な高齢者が、極力施設に通うという印象をなくし、自然のなかで心地よく「歩く」という行為を楽しんでもらう場所になるよう心がけた。元気な高齢者の過ごす新たな居場所のひとつが提示できたのではないかと思っている。

The project was development project of building completed in 2012 (PROJECT: 18), and this time a new day-service building with the concept of "walking" which never exist before. Kitakyushu City which has the highest aging rate population among the other same level cities, is facing an aging society, and surprisingly the elderly people are mostly fine and healthy. At the same time, we understand that there are several activities depending on each individual interest. In this project we are trying to make the elderly people who are still energetic to eliminate the impression that they go to the facility as much as possible and to be a place where people can enjoy the act of "walking" comfortably in nature. We hope that this place could represent the new place where elderly people should spend the time.
