This office is in Minato-ku, Tokyo where there are a lot of tall buildings. By making it clear to have different functions each floor, I brought in designs appears from the functions as spatial representation.

When you use the elevator and get out of it, each floor has different environment, I hope it stimulates the users’ brain and make them feel elation to work.

I made the façade and the first floor by brick material, which has been known as a warm atmosphere characteristic since long time ago. The permanence of brick materials resonates with the historical background of this company continued from Meiji Period. I tried to express the historical strength and the permanent strength for the future of this company. I hope those people who visit to feel and see the presence of the company continues from the past and the future by different point of view.
