Outline

Togoshi-ginza station has supported the locals' lives and been popular for almost ninety years. The objective of this project is to carry out repairs of aging facility as well as improve the value of the 'station loved by locals'. The platform roof is reconstructed based on the mixed structure of scissors truss design built with glued laminated timber made of Tokyo trees and steel frames.Keeping the concept of the original roof, it is renewed with more modern structure.The wall continues into the roof in a seamless way, which fills the space between railway and roof with gentle atmosphere.
