  • HASSELBLAD gallery / office

    Gallery and office | Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
    Renovation: 94.58㎡ | Completed: October 2012
    Photographs: Ryota Arata

    This is a renovation to create a new gallery and office for Hasselblad, a reputable Swiss camera manufacturer, in Jingumae 1-chome, Shibuya. The design references the geometry of the square, which is the standard format of Hasselblad cameras. This inspiration was combined with another drawn from the processes of framing and trimming in photography in finalizing the design. The black stainless echoes the beautiful, elegant look of Hasselblad cameras. Frames were overlaid through the gallery space to simulate the inner working of the camera.
