ETHNOS’ ‘hulic & new shibuya’ project in tokyo, japan can be seen at the center-gai, located at the intersection of inokashira street and the yumeji street. the surroundings of their latest design bristle with commercial buildings holding signboards. the project team’s proposal is to visualize every floor as a volume in which through its full glazing facade, pedestrians can perceive the inner-life from the street. in this way, they recognize the building not from the signage but from the volume of the building.

japanese based firm ETHNOS produces diversity from maximizing the rental spaces through commanding the sky factor. external shaft equipment allows 100% rentable floor area ratio to preserve economic efficiency and the architects have developed a sash less, insulated glazing, fire preventing, steel curtain wall on the surface to mimic the appearance of glass in each floor as layers.

  • Amazing – not the architecture in general, but anyone tried to solve the overlapping problem by stacking volumes should be impressed. A section with the cantilevering parts (one set back and the other way round) would help to understand the construction. How is the thickness of the floor slab solved? Any help?
