CUT in Koganecho
by Persimmon Hill Architects

This project involved redesigning a former illegal sex shop to the artist in residence as part of Koganecho Bazaar, 2016.

Koganecho Bazaar is an art festival held every year since 2008. Therefore, Koganecho has art everywhere, the town itself is in the exhibition space. We cut into the long and narrow space of the existing building to create oblique facade. CUT becomes an exhibition space.
