Description   The new building for the world renowned watchmaker, Rolex, is located along Eitai Street, a busy Tokyo thoroughfare running alongside Toyo Park. The main work spaces are sandwiched between the exterior cladding (a unitized double-skin curtain wall) and the central core. The double skin’s interstitial space serves as a thermal and acoustic insulation layer, and perceptually adds a sense of depth to the facade. The treated interior glass layer filters views of the surroundings, while the emphasis on horizontality and a transparency adds new life to the surroundings.
