Entry Description

Effective lighting and illumination planning were required, after considering the harmony with silver patterned existence outer wall. Indirect light in the upper part of a slit and a core illuminates the interior in the evening, and a gorgeous expression appears in the twilight and creates the scene like the crystal of glass.
The frontal road of the site is very busy by huge trailers and dump tracks for Osaka Port. The environment was very inferior by continuous vibration and an intense row. Easy maintenance as well as earthquake resistance, sound insulation and lighting were also satisfied, so square glass blocks was adopted. Various glass blocks with opaqueness, translucency and wave patterns are arranged by a certain design rule. Lights and shadows colored vividly are brought to the simple interior space.
