STOCK Share Office in Tokyo, Japan by OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Article source: OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

This is a project to convert a building that was originally a rental warehouse into a share office.
The existing building had a 5-story container architecture style. Due to the characteristics of the container warehouse, the space had low ceilings with no windows, and was surrounded by metal. This gave it a very inorganic feeling.The first thing we did was to establish a large aperture with the wooden sash facing the street.Then we planted an over 12meterhigh sequoia as a symbol tree, since this property exists in the middle of the hill and had no landmark. Because the depth of a shrubbery was only 1800mm, we made the root bowl as small as possible, and installed the tree at the top of the hill. As for the rest of the plants, we leveled their heights to the sequoia, and selected their leaf colors so that they are deeper towards the back.The entrance door is made out of a 10 year-old marine container.It has an important role to show when the office is open or closed.

Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden, and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives.
