WS Gallery 2


Renewal project of an art gallery building in Ginza.
A former gallery used to require high standards but now it has the necessity to feel open and have a welcoming entrance. We removed the existing entrance which had a profound sense of postmodernity and replaced it with a facade of glass and eaves that gently welcomes visitors.
To make it suitable for contemporary art galleries, the glass facade is bent by modern technology and has achieved a soft welcoming transparency.
