FORUM8. Co, Ltd. is a cutting-edge engineering software company that develops 3DVR/FEM packaged software and systems. FORUM8 is currently finishing its employee residence, located in Shinagawa, Tokyo. The design of the building's facade has not been finalized and we would like to ask capable and passionate designers to submit their proposals for the northern facade where the main entrance is located.
We envision an aesthetic facade that appeals to the eyes of both residents and guests as they are welcomed into the building. Your design may considered for implementations into the current project plan in progress.
・ Please design the northern facade of the building facing the road.
・ Your design should be at least 1m away from the road to leave room for a sidewalk.
・ Main entrance is an essential part of this side of the building.
・ Windows should be designed at level 1, 2, and 3 where rooms for residents are located.
