Ginkgo
project combines art, technology and architecture to integrate a housing complex in the nature of the existing park located in front.

CONTEXT AND PROGRAM

The project is located near the natural park of Veluwe in the Netherlands with views over an old church and the central park of the small town.

Memphiskyodai in Tokyo, Japan by Kosuke Kajikawa

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Article source: Kosuke Kajikawa

It is a bar located in a shopping district in Shimokitazawa. Looking at the bare dismantled concrete space, we decided to carefully minimize what we added to the space. For the interior design of the store, materials and colors were purposefully selected to be simple and minimalist. We balanced with scrupulous care what to remodel and what to leave. We thought an unostentatious design could produce a space that would become a background of the visitor,the furniture and music by making the most of the virtue the space had originally had.
