Chapter 4  Renovation

GOOD OFFICE Shinbashi

(Page  155)



This share office is a renovated project of Hori building
established in 1932 in Shinbashi, Tokyo. Which was originally
built as office and residence for manufacturing architectural
hardware and registered as tangible cultural property in 1998.
The renovation was done to keep original characteristic details
and the traces of past renovations adding modernity to the interior
after modest refurbishment. So, watertight doors, outdated auto
rocks, plastered rooms, and tatami mat rooms are left, and new
parts are found in flooring, painting, furnishing, lighting, and color
schemes. The office must be liked by startup firms, as it looks
elastic.

With the changes in working styles and lifestyles, office design
changes age by age. Taiju Yamashita not only designed a lot of
office interior constantly but also planned office buildings

Serialization / MAKE A BASE WHERE PEOPLE GET

TOGETHER Vol.4
Expanding the profession of architects &
interior designers through place management

(Page  168)




Recently more and more spatial designers and architects tend to
have their own space for some users. How and what effective is it ?
Conventionally spatial designers need clients and now they make
themselves clients, owners, or platformers. Some make just space
for anyone to drop in and some operate cafes and
accommodations. They seem to show new role models of
architects and interior designers, getting smart insight and
expanding their areas of profession. Here are good case studies.
