the new office of ‘aTOKYO co., ltd.’, production manager of international event art fair tokyo, has been completed by architecture studio GENETO. located on the fourth floor of a nondescript building at the intersection of ikura minato-ku, the interior is comprised of three boxes that give structure to the 100m2 space.

considering the client, a concept was developed comparing the office to an event space where the everyday routines of work are put on display. the three boxes: a private workspace for the chief director, another for the president, and a meeting room for all, are where the idea comes to fruition. a range of frames — some opaque, others glass, and more containing actual images — are cut through the internal walls of each box. this creates an interesting spatial experience, that present an always-changing array of views that are the ‘art’ of quotidian existence.
