Flowing Water

Located in an easy slope on a hill, this office building is designed for a research facility of a pharmaceutical company.

Making the best use of this slope, the concept is comfortable working spaces as if it is floating in flowing water.

‘Flowing Water’  in the north of the building slowly flow towards the building, reaches it as a waterfall. The overhung terrace in the fifth floor provides spaces where one would feel like floating in  water. The south facade of the building slants a little, providing high energy efficiency by cutting sunlight. This slanting facade offers wonderful views towards the ‘Flowing Water’  in the south of the building.

Simple and scientific design making full use of the characteristics of the site would create an ideal environment for research which contribute to the improvement of the moral of the company.

 

丘にある傾斜面に計画された製薬会社の研究施設です。

斜面を活かし、流れる水に身を任せるような心地よい研究のための空間をつくることを目指しました。

北側の‘Flowing Water’ は緩やかに建築へ向け流れ、滝となってたどり着きます。5階の水面へ向け、大きく跳ね出したテラスは、まるで水の上に浮遊しているかのような感覚になります。

南面のファサードはやや傾斜し、太陽光を遮ることにより、エネルギー効率を高め、素晴らしい眺望を各階にもたらします。

敷地の特徴を活かした、シンプルで科学的なデザインは理想的な研究環境を生み出し、働く方々の士気の向上に大きく役立つでしょう。
