To create the new agency for TBWA/Hakuhodo,Klein Dytham architecture transformed an old bowling alley in a large 8 story amusement complex in downtown Tokyo.
A central park runs through the middle of the space and a series of shelters for meeting rooms, project rooms and director’s offices generate a small townscape in the space, where the raised areas on top of the shelters make for pleasant breakout spaces.
The office is entered on the 6th floor of the building. This floor acts as reception, gallery and meeting space for external visitors. A wide stair descend onto the main floor arriving in the central park cafe area. Stepped seating and a large plasma screen allow this space to be a very flexible presentation space, including receptions, fashion shows, product launches, etc.
