Looking for a place to practice Kensyobudo, the Japanese art of sword fighting?
Well, the Venice Japanese Community Center recently underwent some major rennovations that included a spacious martial arts studio.
Cuningham Group Architecture also added a second story of masonry-reinforced classrooms and offices to the existing one-story, wood structure, according to a press release from the design firm.
Some sustainable features were also implemented into the design of the new architecture, including low-flow plumbing fixtures, minimal air-conditioning, natural cross-ventilation and draught-resistant plants.
Are you a fan of Kensyobudo? If not, what do you use the community center for? Tell us in the comments.
