CONCEPT

Mitigation of regulations on the maximum height of the building and floor-area ratio to enable efficient use of land was achieved by fulfilling strict and complex “Integrated Design” standards by Tokyo’s metropolitan government. The facade facing a quiet residential area on the south side is dramatically curved, and windows are covered with perforated corrugated metal to minimize the oppressiveness to neighbors while maintaining the privacy of workers.
