広大なオフィススケープに対して、「Creative Farm」というコンセプトを掲げ、渋谷という先進的な街にありながら、自然の素材やモチーフを扱い、温かみを同時に感じるような、アイディアを生み出すプラットフォームとなるオフィスを目指した。

This is an office for a Shibuya based company that is moving onto the IT business, located in the Hikarie Building. It comprises of 2200m2 of large open areas featuring common spaces, such as the front desk, meeting spaces and work spaces for around 400 workers.

Visitors to the office are greeted by a scenic entrance on the 31st floor, and the common spaces were designed as publicly accessible areas such as cafes. A large meeting room has movable walls, on which graphic images inspired by windows of the surrounding buildings are placed. The walls can be opened and closed depending on the need, such as for meetings and parties. Movable tables, planters, and furniture also change the flexibility of the meeting spaces.

Working spaces located along large desks which have been boldly arranged at an angle, allowing for a public environment that is constantly changing. Carpet is assigned according to different departments of the company, and offers changes to colour and direction between each desk and zone. As a result corners become junctions, where benches and furniture have been planned to trigger communication between workers.

Shelves are scattered throughout, such that landscape and scenery these create become landmarks in the large space. The shelves are made of stained oak, and have a texture of pin-up boards to add warmth to the working space. While these familiar shapes subtly divide up the entire area, it generates a liveliness within the working environment.  To add to the unique landscape, the tram, which is controlled by smart phone technology, releases steam from a ultrasonic humidifier as the motor runs. The tram also has sensors which recognize marks at each station and knows when it needs to stop for documents to be dropped in or taken out. The tram transports documents quietly by the windows as if connecting the workers together.

We designed the office so that it can be a platform of ideas with a concept of ‘Creative Farm’.We used natural materials and materials so that warmth can be felt within this wide space, even in the urban context of Shibuya.
