ABOUT

Matsuo Gakuin preparatory school needed a new office space for its reception and meeting rooms. This design enhances the sensitivity of students by offering them a bright and sharp space as to suggest a bright and professional future waiting for them. The entire space is white and bright punctuated by a couple of surfaces treated in golden finishes. The very low ceiling was treated in a reflective aluminum panels doubling the height of the space between the entrance and the reception counter.

ABOUT

Located in one of the most bustling night life spots in Japan, The Parallel Blue offers a new aquarium dining experience in Shinjuku, Tokyo. Challenging the ocean themed possibilities in the heart of the concrete jungle, the new restaurant turns the simple hospitality environment into an immersive space where dinners are submerged in an aquarium universe. The roles are inversed, the dining room is now surrounded by oceanic sceneries, instead of the classical decorative use of aquariums.

ABOUT

Matsuo Gakuin preparatory school needed a new office space for its reception and meeting rooms. This design uses contrast as a concept in such. Not only contrast in color but also in various aspects touching human senses. All textures are uniformly painted white generating an inorganic space. Over it, a metallic material called Black Skin Iron was applied to several surfaces. The result is a contrast in colors, textures, and touches defining the spaces.
