mtka uses U-shaped rotating door to divide this 28 sqm art gallery in tokyo

mtka (murayama + kato architecture) has used a U-shaped rotating door to divide the 28 sqm interior of ACM art gallery. located nearby tokyo‘s shibuya crossing, the gallery incorporates a glass façade, behind which the floor-to-ceiling door rotates to separate the space with its opening and closing. the studio’s ingenious way to define and expand the small interior creates a lightweight atmosphere that focuses on the display of art on the gallery’s walls.

mtka has developed the project for ACM gallery, a space that works to support those who don’t always have an easy way into society, and to provide opportunities for artists from diverse backgrounds, including the young, the old, and the disabled. with the rotating door, the studio has attempted to create a clear symbol for the gallery within the busy surroundings of tokyo’s shibuya area, and use that as an element to define the interior space. set behind the building’s glass façade, the large U-shaped door divides the space functionally by its opening and closing, while visually expanding the 28.27 sqm space. inside, the gallery is split in two zones: the display area and the office/ art storage space, which incorporates a U-shaped table at the very end of the room.
