Sapporo Chanter is a commercial facility designed for the revitalization of the Minami 1-Jo area of Sapporo. In order for it to become a facility with easy access and with a message, it has been designed like a glass cube, with the activity of the inside being transmitted to the outside. With a highly transparent structure and double skin, the aim was for a building with a strong impact on the city landscape. A pressurized smoke control system, highly-evaluated by the Disaster Prevention Performance Evaluation System, is being used, ensuring high disaster-prevention performance for this small-scale commercial facility, as well as realizing an open space with a high level of efficiency.
