NHK Kumamoto broadcasting stationBack to Projects list
The first floor of NHK’s new broadcasting station is open to the public, and features a large glass façade that faces onto a promenade symbolizing the project. This façade creates an interconnected exterior-interior space that serves as a community “information salon” welcoming all members of the public. Between the building and the promenade is a contemporary “hybrid palisade” comprised of wood and greenery. This palisade brings green views into the building and maintains an appropriate separation from passersby, while still allowing the energy of the city to be shared both inside and outside the building.
