dear jingumae building

the dear jinguemae building is the result of a renovation project which turned a 25-year old office building into a commercial facility. the client requested an expressive design differentiated from the building´s urban environment which should also represent the company. thus, the architects designed a smooth surface which gives the building a kind of soft appearance to enhance the acceptance of the people passing by.

after having removed the old façade, the basic concrete structure became visible. the new metallic façade was entirely planned by the help of computers. the soft appearance derives from the combination of misaligned layers which consist of only two radiuses (700r and 1700r) and straight elements.
