Stunning Architecture: Ginza Place
Written by BCCJ
September 26, 2016
Award-winning BCCJ Entrepreneur Member, Klein Dytham architecture, in partnership with Taisei Corporation are the creators of the stunning facade design and the overall massing of the new 11 storey building, Ginza Place, located on one of the most iconic corners in the world, the Ginza 4-Chome crossing.
The facade, made from 5315 individual aluminium panels reflects the craftsmanship and quality which is synonymous with Ginza. The project massing takes its cues from the historic Wako building opposite with it’s clear horizontal banding which allow balconies on the 3rd and 7th floors to have unprecedented views of Ginza, Chuo Dori and Harumi Dori.
The new building also offers a nod to the past. The 7th floor balcony was designed to sit at previously-regulated building heights and symbolically represents a skyline from another time.
Ginza Place is a gateway to the re-birth of Ginza and has already become a new landmark for Tokyo and Japan ready for the build up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
