The employment support center Yoridoko is for young people with disabilities, such as agoraphobia and developmental disabilities, inside the Nakanomachi Shopping Street in Wakayama Prefecture.

The money collected through crowdfunding and donations was used to renovate an old clothing store in a shopping district.

University students and facility users also participated in part of the construction. Although it is a low cost project, it creates a new space by confronting old and new.

This project has been longlisted in the civic and cultural interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
