A head office building for a long established brand handling house-ware with japanese traditional Arts and Crafts. It is located in the suburb where normally parking lot comes to along the road. Here we set the facade along the road by putting parking lot behind the building. The long and narrow strip spaces like old town house style make realized bustle and silence at the same time. And gable roofs create heterogeneous office space because of the gaps between each of them for making change in a light condition and the slope of the roof for a fire smoke extraction, whose scenery is continuous to the surroundings. It is come up with the working space special for the company of traditional Arts and Crafts fostered by town and neighbor.

伝統工芸品の生活雑貨を扱う老舗ブランドの本社屋。郊外に建つものの、駐車場を裏手にまわして道路沿いにファサードを設け、旧市街の町屋にも似た短冊状の平面によって、賑わいと静けさを両立した。周囲の家並みから連続する勾配屋根は、光の状態に変化をつけるための高低差と、火災時の煙を自然に排出するための傾きによって、不均質なオフィス空間をつくり出している。町と人に育まれる伝統工芸の会社ならではの仕事場となった
