出光美術館
(丸の内, 東京)

出光美興産の創業者、出光佐三氏のコレクション公開を目的に1966年にオープンした歴史ある美術館。1期工事でエレベーターホール、2期工事でエントランス・受付・ショップ、3期工事でロビー・陶片室の改修を行った。空間テーマは日本建築のDNA。日本独自の空間の質的表現を意識し、谷口吉郎氏設計の既存施設との調和を心掛けた。エレベーターホールのアート壁は碓氷峠の土を使用した版築壁仕上、その他の壁面も土、石、木という自然素材を基本としている。歴史的美術品へのプロローグとして、期待感のある空間となることを願いつつ…

Idemitsu Museum of Arts
(Marunoucho, Tokyo)

Opened in 1966 as a museum open to the public, the Idemitsu Museum of Arts has a long and respected history in Japan. It houses the art collection of Sazo Idemitsu, founder of Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd. Refurbishment of the museum was carried out in three phases. The first phase saw the renovation of the elevator hall, the second phase the entrance, reception area and museum shop, and the third phase the lobby area and exhibition room for ceramic fragments. The refurbishment was based on the theme of "Japanese architectural DNA". Care was taken to incorporate uniquely Japanese spatial qualities and to achieve a sense of harmony with the existing premises designed by Yoshiro Taniguchi. The art display wall in the elevator hall was finished with rammed earth sourced from the Usui pass in central Japan, while natural materials such as earth, stones and wood were used as a base for the other walls in the building. As a prologue to viewing the historical artifacts and artworks on display in the museum, these spaces helped to create a keen sense of expectation for the visitor.
