located  in fukuoka city’s main streets, ‘union soda’ is the latest interiors project developed by japanese architecture studio CASE-REAL. the purpose of the design was to create a white cubic space that ultimately becomes a multi-functional hub – used as a gallery, rental place or to host self-organized events.

the sliding wall allows a flexible division of the space whenever needed

 

 

the main task  for CASE-REAL was to design a flexible space that can be used as one fully opened platform, or divided into several sections. as a result, the team created a system where three large white walls move across the space, along the L-shaped rail. by maneuvering the walls, various scenes can be created by the zoning and placement of the partitions. the overall characteristics such as the openings towards the streets were maintained, and fixtures / equipments were kept to its minimum. ‘we are looking forward for this place to function as a hub to nourish new cultural scenes in fukuoka city,’ reveals the studio.
