After the Ginza thread I decided to also open a Shibuya thread. I will post info and pictures from smaller projects in this ward, including Harajuku, Omotesando, Daikanyama and other neighborhoods.

1st some reposts.


Tokyu fully presented their next project close to Omotesando today.

Located on the Meijidori between Shibuya and Omotesando this will be Tokyu's next big flagship project in the neighborhood after the TOKYU PLAZA Omotesando Harajuku opened in 2012.

It looks like that the area behind Q-Front in Shibuya is set for a make-over. A voluntary proposal by the land owners, especially by the large department stores is now being looked into. The aim is to rejuvenate the area which has several older large buildings next to small streets with small shops. Make it better for pedestrians, creating a better mix of stores, culture etc. And simply give it a bit more charm in the eye of the Tokyo Olympics.

No specific new buildings are being mentioned, or if it will include new high rises. But with several larger buildings in the area up for rebuilding anything is possible.

Hmmm...I've always liked that area the way that it is...hopefully whatever is planned is either not too drastic, or is truly visionary.

Just please, don't take away my Tower Records! With all that's changed in Tokyo in the last 20 years, that has been like a rock to me. I can't believe it's still around.

Dear Jingumae Project, by Amano Design

year: 2014
purpose: office
location: Jingumae, Shibuya

This is a conversion project that totally renovated a 25-year old office building, located on a back street of Omotesando in Tokyo, in order to facilitate commercial functions. The client requested a design that would have a façade expression differentiated from the surrounding buildings, and that would be a part of future tenants’ branding. We aimed at a design with a soft expression that would be favorably accepted by passersby, while standing out from the surrounding buildings that tended to have physically hard expressions. By removing the out-of-fashion decorative frame structure on the existing building frame as much as possible, the primary shape was exposed. Then, metallic louvers were placed by using computer design to add a modern expression that conjures images of soft clothing.
The louvers give a soft expression by connecting three-dimensionally misaligned radiuses. They appear complicated but consist of only two types of radii (700R and 1700R) and straight lines. The louver components are welded to crossed SUS plates, and protrude from the building frame by SUS pipes, resulting in a streamlined workability. At a time with a feeling of stagnation, we expected the building to create a new relationship with its surroundings, to add variety and a rich expression to the street, and to vitalize the neighborhood.

Nice updates. Some of the buildings would look good on Ginza though.

The design of the new Shibuya City Hall has been released. The construction of the new building that will be build on the same spot as the current city hall will start in November 2015. The complex will consist of 2 buildings, one will be the public hall, the other an office.
