It is a space inspired by the antique red brick warehouse.
The part that we challenged this time was to create a space that not only has an antique feeling, but a space to read and construct history, that also has the futuristic feeling of Yokohama, a city with a concept of a future metropolitan appropriate for the 21st century.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
No matter how much generations and cities change, the red brick warehouse at the harbor remains to be the symbol of Yokohama.
Therefore, this time, we created a space that feels as if it is reconstructed from a disassembled red-brick warehouse.
It is not a common wedding hall, but a space with a free design that is not confined by strict traditions, that was constructed for the many non-religious people in Japan.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
finished in August 2016 in Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa, Japan
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
In order to blend the completely opposite antique and futuristic atmospheres, we built a space surrounded by stacked-up materials made of stones, bricks, and wood at the bottom, that symbolizes the passing of age and history. While leaving the warmth of wood and bricks as if they were originally used in the warehouse construction, we incorporated mirror materials into the design, producing a space with hard elements and soft feelings. Furthermore, with a waterfall at the front, the space seems to have a facial expression.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
chapel, public space, wedding hall
By using mirrors, which illustrate the horizon, in a continuous design, we built a connection. Although there is a strong futuristic sense from the inorganic impression, but by adding the materials that originate from the surroundings, we created a dimension that extends beyond the ages.
