Outline

The new corporate headquarters of Takenaka Komuten Co., Ltd. was designed to improve operational efficiency by integrating a number of previously separate business divisions into a single location, and to strengthen relations with affiliated businesses already located in the Toyocho area. The client wanted office space that was designed to facilitate rapid responses to customer needs, and support creative business operations. At the same time, to fulfil their social responsibility with regard to environmental protection, a high degree of coordination was required in the areas of facilities, structure and planning in order to achieve the desired environmental quality together with reduced environmental load. It was also necessary to design new low-cost parts, reduce LCC, and develop an environmental support system for use after construction had been completed. The offices themselves are based on a new concept aimed at improving office communication. The project revolved around an integrated plan encompassing construction, a variety of other technologies for supporting the office environment, as well as workplace development.
