Description   In response to the program and scale of the adjacent residential neighborhood, the YKK R&D Center is broken down into several blocks. A central courtyard patio 8-meter above the ground serves as a gathering space and allows light into other sections of the building. The division of the volume creates a distinct atmosphere in the building itself (located in a context where open space is sparse). Moreover, the atrium and courtyard spaces imply new possibilities for urbanism within architecture itself.
