Outline

KONICA MINOLTA SKT, in Hachioji, Tokyo, was planned as a research facility that develops the core business of the company, digital printing system technology. The design concept of the building is "light" and “color”, both are the important issues of the researchers in this building, so we planned the prism-like atrium in the middle of the office floors with the rich sunlight. We also designed the Spectrum Wall on the west façade with the image of the spectrum of light, which symbolize the innovative activities of the KONICA MINOLTA, continues to engage in a variety of businesses.
