Located in front of the Osaka Castle Park Station, JO-TERRACE OSAKA is a gateway space to enter the urban oasis and historic site Osaka Castle Park. The original Osaka Castle was built in the 16th century, and it has been a symbol of Osaka since then.
We tried to preserve existing trees as much as possible so that it can be integrated to the surrounding woods. Also we blended seasonal plants to welcome visitors from inside and outside the country. To celebrate the history of Osaka as aquapolis, paving pattern design is inspired by a nearby river.
