Located at the basement level of Shibuya’s PARCO Part 1 Building, we have designed the interior and exterior of the store for new fashion label ‘my panda’. From ‘Smiles’, the company which created brands such as ‘PASS THE BATON’ and ‘giraffe’, this label is based on a ‘two-tone’ theme. We wanted to design a store which could become iconic to the fashion label such that it may be easily recognized.

The Sony Corporation’s building in Osaki, Japan by Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Article source: Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Concept & Objectives

This project was inspired by the paradoxical idea of improving the environment through the presence of large-scale architecture. The Project is an office building for Sony’s R&D department, which takes the form of a thin vertical plate to ensure good views. More importantly, the form minimizes the heat island effect by positioning its narrow sides against prevailing winds, thus allowing the breeze to flow in from Tokyo Bay without hindrance. The building was then conceived as a massive cooling devise that performs in much the same way as a natural forest.
