Takanawa Gateway Station (DNP)

"Takanawa Gateway Station" is the new station project in Tokyo which was developed under a theme of "Fusion of City and Station" by a famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.

You can feel Japanese "Shoji(障子)" through Large woodgrain beam and Maku(膜)* .

*Maku(膜) = Translucent Film which is mainly used for ceiling. It gives very soft impression to the entire space.

Whole architecture was inspired by Japanese traditional houses and even some Japanese cultures such as ORIGAMI (折り紙).

Japanese cedar are used for interior part of the station.

These cedars are installed by Japanese traditional installation method "大和張り(Yamatobari)". It was very popular style in old houses in Japan, which is made by to nail a wood veneer alternately by slight height difference.

Original plan was using this cedar for the exterior as well. However, our product was used instead due to the concern of maintenance and corrosion for the place where it is exposed to the elements.

Just like the cedar used for interior, our Aluminium Decor Panels are installed to look like "Yamato bari".
