Large-scale rental distribution facilities are being developed all around Japan to meet growing demand caused by the exploding e-commerce market from a variety of businesses, including e-commerce and shipping companies. Our client, who has developed distribution facilities for many different clients, operates under the philosphy of Human Centric Design, shifting away from creating facilities centered on efficiency and goods. Their newly developed large-scale facilities offer advanced comfortable working environments, designed for people, branded as “KLüBB Area.” We designed the nursery, shop, break lounge, and entrance hall of ESR Kuki DC, the fifth building.
儿童时代将所见的云的形状想象成动物或者其它各种各样有趣的东西。休息室拨动使用者心弦的，形状多变的镂空形墙壁，宛如图书馆的书架一般的排列开来，我们将它们取名为“cut out wall”。人们懂得观察对象的远近移动而产生的视觉差，透过cut out wall的复数连续的漏孔所见的事物产生变换时，即发生视觉差时，使用者便可感知自己在移动。相比之下，行走穿梭时身边景物一成不变的硕大场所且相对封闭的物流设施，这种灵活多变回归以人为本的建造，更多考量的是人们感受到舒心与舒适。这种视觉差的建造，也以连续镂空的矩形的形式运用到了大厅的设计当中。
When we were children, we saw animals and many other things in the clouds. The break lounge is partitioned by “cut out walls,” arranged like bookshelves in a library, with irregular holes reminiscent of those childhood memories. People perceive distance by judging the disparity of what they are observing when it moves. When the figure seen through the series of holes in the cut out walls moves, in other words, when disparity occurs, the viewers feel as if they themselves are moving. In the context of a spacious yet closed-off distribution center, where the view never changes no matter how long one walks, these kind of mechanisms bring us back to human scale, prompting feelings of relief and comfort. We included this disparity mechanism in the design of the entrance hall by repeating a series of small holes as well.
Because the nursery is located on the first floor of the north building, where sunlight is not readily available, we attempted to let in as much natural light as possible by making a slanted wall on the terrace to reflect light into the interior. During the few hours of light in the morning, the direct light creates shadows on the wall, depicting the passage of time. The continuance of the floor of the terrace to the astroturf slanted wall invites us to run up it. Similarly, the rolling shapes of the interior design also function as a physical mechanism to invite movement and appeal to their sense of curiosity and foster their sense of adventure and physical ability.
