Hermes Boutique in Ginza
Tokyo, Japan

We worked on the Schematic Phase models and drawings for this Hermes Boutique in the Ginza section of Tokyo.

Renzo said he wanted it to be like a drum; the whole facade is constructed of custom designed glass blocks.

Due to the thinness of the core, and the fact that the facade was all glass block, the Engineer from Arup had a little bit of a hard time wrapping his head around the project.

Obviously the execution in the final product is extraordinary.
