S-GATE Akihabara

CONCEPT

This is the fourth project in the S-GATE mid-sized office building series by Sankei Building Co., Ltd. The site area for this project was smaller than usual, limiting the design. However, the trademark ribbed façade design was successfully applied to the building. Pillars were placed at intervals of 13 meters, to avoid exposing them in the façade and creating a design that is on par with others that have an outer frame. The entrance area features the trademark luminous wall, wall greenery, digital signage and integrated panels, maintaining the S-GATE brand quality. The work spaces on standard floors have been created in rectangles to secure the maximum useful area available, giving birth to a new prototype for small-sized office buildings.
