At this phase of the ongoing YKK project, we provided several environmental design consultation for Block Number-2
Project Leader: Kitagata Hiroshi
The YKK passive town project is built over the old YKK company housing site in Kurobe, Toyama Prefecture. The master plan was designed by Prof. Yuichiro Kodama and block number-1. Maki’s Comprehensive Planning Office designed the second block, where Mae Lab utilized the simulation of wind environment, the light environment, and the heat load to carry out the engineering verification of major design decisions of this block. Starting from the conceptual design, Mae lab suggested and verified the use of several technical proposals that shall enhance the environmental and energy performance of the second block.
