Workshop for disabled people offering a wide range of support for work and recreation. Utilizing a wooden construction and soft-tone wood interior, the spaces for work and relaxation complement each other. The entire interior of the building is accessible for all without the use of stairs or elevators. As visitors enter the building through the semi-outdoor entryways, they are given shelter as well as views of the surrounding outdoor landscape.
