Meiji street between Shibuya and Harajuku is one of the most fashionable area for young people. This building was originally designed to put a large TV studio as an anchor use and to collect media-related companies as tenants. The main studio (A-studio) which can be converted to an event hall is laid out on 1F and its supportive facilities are on B2F level. On 9F, a sub-studio (B studio) is designed to overlook beautiful Yoyogi park and gymnasiums. 4,5,6F are used by the head office of News Broadcasting Japan co. and 7,8F are by Konami (a famous game soft maker). It is literally a mecca of media business. In the huge main entrance hall, there stands an illuminated wall which shows the urban pattern of Shibya district. We insisted on using the raw matterials as much as possible and especially the exterior design paid high attentions to the next door temple and Meiji street.
