one omotesando

the one omotesando building is the new head office building of the french fashion group louis vuitton moet hennessy which is standing at the southern entrance to omotesando avenue. the street is lined with large conifer trees on both sides. kuma kengo`s approach was to create a building which should harmonize with the trees and not conflict with them. thus, kuma kengo chose vertical laminated wood elements supporting the curtain wall façade.
