Civic hall “TETTO”
Architects: aat+makoto yokomizo architects,Inc.
Completion of construction: Oct 2017
“TETTO” is constructed on the site where the civic center, destroyed by the tsunami, was previously located. The building is used as a center for civic activities promoting revitalization of the area. The larger hall has 838 seats and wooden walls which architects carefully designed to promote better acoustics, making the hall the best place to hold music concerts. Also, the seats of the larger hall are removable allowing the parquet floor of the theater to be flat. By connecting the larger and smaller halls, a 77 meter-long space with a large roof appears, harmonizing the building with the outside landscape. TETTO won the award of the Good Design Special Award in 2018.
