This is an extension / renovation of the existing airport terminal building. Sugi laminated lumber from Shizuoka prefecture with a large cross section is simply used in the shape of a 700 mm pitch joyst to form a large roof structure. The joyst beam needs to be received by a girder in the direction orthogonal to it for each span, but the space is divided for each span and the flow of the space is impaired. Therefore, I thought of a hybrid truss beam of wood and iron as a way to eliminate the girder and show the joyst beam continuously. The large drop-off eaves wooden frame in the front connects directly from the lobby to the airside of the boarding, creating a space that softly covers the passengers.
