A 6,000 square-foot VIP Orthodontic clinic in Tokyo, Japan located in Omotesando, a vibrant and sophisticated area, visited by both locals and tourists. The clinic is structured using steel and panelized with calcium silicate panels, free to move in the vertical dimension in case of earth quakes, that simultaneously operate as cavities for LED lights.
Since space is very limited in Tokyo, we increased the clinics scale by incorporating the exterior balcony space such that it participates in the interior experience. We develop smooth and gradual transitions between materials-soft to hard, soft paneling to fabrics, opaque to clear glass, controlled led/halogen to natural light while fulfilling the experiential goals of the project.
位于东京繁华富有生机的表参道（Omotesando） 的IWI VIP牙科诊所，建筑面积为6000平方英尺，是当地人和旅游者经常光顾的场所。诊所采用钢结构和硅酸钙板组成，这些板材可以纵向移动从而防止地震带来的损耗，同时这些纵向空间被巧妙的使用作为LED灯带安装的空间。
