Ginza Takamoto Building

project list
RAY index

You will find the Ginza Takamoto Building by turning into a small alley from the Sotobori Street, Ginza. The building’s façade with stones, blue colored steels, and lighting panels form quiet and chic appearance in the daytime and a dignified elegance at night. The lighting panels are lit with white LEDs on right and left ends. With the glass boxes covering the panels, we could create silky smooth lights. And another feature of our lighting design is that the lighting changes with the advance of night: It starts with full lights in the evening and changes to a soft gradation of lights at night.
