Kanda Terrace in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: Key Operation Inc. 

Located in a central Tokyo neighborhood with many low and mid-rise office buildings, this rental building for restaurants stands on a long, narrow lot, surrounded on three sides by streets.

Key considerations when designing a building of this type are how to create a group identity for the tenants and how to relate the units to the cityscape.

Because of its city-center location, this mid-rise building needed to be commercially efficient, occupying the entire permissible floor area ratio and filling that space with restaurant tenants on every floor.
