Ginza Place

Tokyo, Japan / Klein Dytham architecture


Ginza Place sits on the most important corner of Ginza, and therefore by extension, Tokyo and Japan. This façade, inspired by traditional Japanese basket weaving, sukashibori, incorporates all of the intricacy of a handwoven object whilst also delivering the eye-catching wow-factor demanded by this iconic corner.

At street level the design of the lattice has a very human and intimate scale, and as the building reaches up, the pattern becomes a more dramatic expression of vertical movement. The concept behind the façade took into account the history of the Sapporo-owned building, along with its surrounding structures, including the Wako Building, whilst also bringing a freshness and energy to this sophisticated and classic neighbourhood.
