yoshida printing inc. tokyo head office building

the headquarters of yoshida printing was built on a rectangular plot which has three sides onto the street. the massive character of the building is compensated with the treatment of the facade, with deployé metallic meshes over glass surfaces, applied as thin superposed scales and cut out in different shapes. this finish gives the volume lightness and permeability, and creates completely open-plan interiors. the narrow central protrusion houses the services, freeing up the main block for mixed and representation uses. along the section there are changes in the height of the slabs that, without interrupting the spatial continuity, organize the spaces into sectors. different types of stairs link the spaces to achieve a flexible distribution.
