We proposed what we called a “big plate office”, since the client wanted to create an environment that can flexibly respond to future corporate growth while also allows the employees to have more face to face experiences. It is a low-rise, three-story building with 70m × 48m dimensions or of about 3,300㎡. The exterior of the 2nd and 3rd floors are covered with a large glass resulting in an office with 360-degree views, with focus on Mt. Hakusan. The facade is designed to be a landmark by the combination of glass and natural stone, with the overlapping of the eaves and louvers accentuating the horizontal line.
The 3m eave controls direct sunlight into the office space, while the step terrace guides light to the center and lower floors of the office. Even in Hokuriku where there is little sunshine in winter, it is an environment where you can enjoy the brightness.
