Aoyama Studio is a rental space for art and creative exhibitions planned as a pop-up facility and located on the 2nd floor of an office building on Aoyama Street. We planned two rental spaces and a shared lounge inside the very typical office-style property, leaving its still-new tile carpet intact.
If we were to achieve a space attractive to the general public, we should have removed the tile carpet, but removing and disposing of something we can still use would create unnecessary waste and be bad for the environment. Still, the space covered in tile carpet lacked charm.
So we decided to use materials around the space that spruced it up, such as partitions made of metal pipe and larch plywood, transforming it into a space similar and yet different to the former office.
