Galerie Ashiya Schule manages and promotes contemporary artists. Because the lot is located on a corner facing a relatively lively street, the client requested an elegant exterior design that would symbolically represent the gallery. The oversized wooden doors fulfill this symbolic role, drawing visitors into a world that exists apart from everyday life, despite the very short distance between street and gallery. On either side of the doors, tall, narrow windows give passersby a glimpse of the work on display inside and the worldview of the artists who created it, contributing to the gallery’s mission of promoting modern art.
Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.
No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
