Dear Ginza Building by Amano Design Office

Amano Design Office have designed the Dear Ginza Building in Tokyo, Japan. Description The client is a developer company. It purchased a long-sought after lot in Ginza, and planned to build a commercial /office building. The building site is on the Ginza 1-chome Gaslight Street, which is one street behind the Ginza Central Street. It is on the back side of the Mizuho Bank and Pola Ginza buildings on the Central Street. The atmosphere is quite different from the gorgeous Central Street, and the site is on an empty street which is often seen behind the street with large-sized buildings. Attracting as many people as possible into such a street is our task. The client desired the building to be a gorgeous existence. In addition, the designer desired to provide a “slight feeling of strangeness” to the passersby that would attract them to the building. Considering the views from the inside, simply obtaining openness with glass seems futile, since the outside scenery is hopeless.
