Outline

A rebuilding project at the existing site of the headquarters building located to the southeast of JR Shizuoka Station. To make the headquarters building open to the region, an event site and glassed-in showroom were provided at the front of the building. The wooden louvers made of local Japanese cypress were used for the west side of the building to convey an image of warmth. A double-column structure is utilized in the office space to achieve a highly flexible column-free space. Alternative energy was utilized allowing the entire building to act as a showroom for environmental features.
