Outline

Retaining its historical charm as a sake brewery from 1922, the building was reborn as a research facility symbolizing the start of Hokuriku Coca Cola Bottling and Wakatsuru Sake Brewery. The design restored the classic mud-wall look, and the beams under the large roof create a beautiful space for enduring use. Passing on the brewery spirit to future generations, the joy of living in “time” can be felt in this reborn building. Contrasting the stepped research space using the historical building structure and the front-yard glass mosaic folding screen is the main design of this building.
