Japanese architect Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architecture Office has designed the interior of a food-photography studio in Tokyo.
Located in the industrial warehouse area of Kaigan Minato, Hue Plus was designed for image agency Amana Holdings and combines a photographic studio, office, cafe, library and kitchen.
The studio is designed to feel more like a social space than a workplace and features exposed wooden flooring, untreated concrete walls and dining tables with legs made of tree trunks.
Photography is by Takumi Ota.
Here's some more information from the architects:
The alternative space Hue+ is a series of facilities seamlessly integrated into the photo studio, where the visual expression of ‘eating’ is the particular subject of photographic exploration.
Unlike an ordinary photo studio that is a closed box to be used merely as a shooting equipment, Hue+ is an office space, a cafe, a library and a kitchen that the users have control over, making them feel like staying longer for its own sake and enjoy the experience.
Hue+ embraces its users by enabling them to change it as they feel fit. The relaxed atmosphere offers further possibilities of open and vibrant communications to stir up the users’ creative minds and fresh ideas about ‘eating’.
