The Duplicated Edge Office

The Duplicated Edge is a design for Toshin Satellite Preparatory School in Kawanishi, Japan. The School wanted a new reception, consultation and conference spaces in a narrow 110sqm room with a low ceiling. This design proposes an open space marked by a sharp triangular reception and information counter dividing the space into functional entities. The counter is covered in a gradually ascending white metallic sheet. This combination is duplicated by mirrors in the backyard wall and a reflective aluminum panels on the ceiling extending the space into wider dimensions.
