Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop designed by Japanese architect Junya Ishigami + Associates. This studio and workspace where students of the Kanagawa Institute of Technology spend their days designing in this studio and workspace which has a quite diffent design and transparent walls. The walls are all made of glass so the students can get the feeling of working outside while being indoors. The floor-to-ceiling glass makes the building appear weightless and stylish.
The open plan preserves the building’s sense of transparency. Since the walls are glass, this creates an uninterrupted space. 305 columns of various sizes support the roof of skylights. White color keeps the focus on the space and the view from the ceiling, not the structure. Columns with randomly placed appearance, specifically placed to create the sensation of zoned spaces. Nonrestrictive quality of the columns at Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop by Junya Ishigami + Associates provides a flexible layout to suit the changing needs of students.
