e-Lifestyle Information Center "Design no Ma"

AICHI 2008

This is Chubu Electric Power Company's e-Lifestyle Information Center, established with the support of around 80 companies. The project emulates good design and eco life for people seeking a high-sensitivity lifestyle. Located in a luxury residential area in the eastern area of Nagoya City, and positioned next to Mitsukoshi Hoshigaoka Terrace at the base of the hill coming from Hoshigaoka Station, the center is designed to blend in with the townscape and landscape. The building construction, using natural materials such as wood, greenery and glass to the fullest, and the hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped roof, which has the feeling of being suspended, leads to a sense of presence through its light and form.
