Adaptive reuse project
This building, the oldest wooden racehorse stable in Japan and now the only office space where people work where horses used to live, changed the conventional concept of an office. The Magariya-style building, originally built over 100 years ago, is a registered tangible cultural property. The task was to conserve this structure and the culture that nurtured it for future generations. The long-unused building was restored to create office space and a place where anyone can drop by. This highly unique project adopted traditional techniques and modern technology and successfully conveys vanishing local history and culture through its dedicated and extraordinary design.
