This building is a workshop-cum-warehouse of the neighboring company. The first floor is the workshop, and the second floor is the warehouse. In this limited space, the warehouse storage area was maximized. Incorporating a concept that robustly expressed the client company into this building was an important theme. The client is a company that supplies professional shampoos and cosmetics to beauty salons, and studies the science of hair and hair growth. A portion of each pillar penetrates the roof, supports the roof, or supports the shelves. Although one of the important functions of this building is that the design of the pillars support part of the structure, this building’s presentation exists where the pillars are a metaphor for hairs and evoke the image of the client’s brand: creating strong hair.
