INTERIOR STYLING

MANSARD STUDIO

STUDIO / Daikanyama Tokyo, 2010

Jamo developed this naturally lit photography studio for Koichiro Doi, a photographer working around the world with bases in Tokyo, Paris and New York. The space was designed to realize his long held idea to have a studio where he can both give free rein to his creative pursuits and also offer a sense of comfort to visitors. While creating divisions between individual work areas (shooting space, make-up room, meeting area), Jamo also considered how to create a greater sense three-dimensionality to the space and made it possible to open certain doors to convert the studio into a single space. Partitions use translucent materials (frosted glass, glass block) and give a sense of comfort by allowing people in any part of the studio to sense light and the presence of others. With the way natural light enters the space being of paramount importance during shootings, various simulations were performed to study the effects created. Two types of semitransparent curtains as well as a blackout curtain were installed; these help add to the sense of openness in the space while also allowing the photographer to adjust natural light levels instantly. As a space that seeks to elicit the performance aspect of photography, the sound system, bathing facilities and furniture detailing give shape to Doi's sense of "true comfort".

東京・パリ・ニューヨークをベースにグローバルに活動する、フォトグラファー土井浩一郎氏の自然光撮影スタジオ。クリエーションを思う存分追求できる環境であり、同時に、訪れる人にとっては居心地良く快適であってほしいという土井氏の長年の想いを実現させた。各自が仕事に集中できるよう、撮影スペース、メイクルーム、ミーティングスペースの区切りは明確にしながらも、ひとたびドアを開けると空間に一体感が出るよう、空間の切り取り方を立体的に考えた。部屋の間仕切りは磨りガラスやガラスブロックなどの透過性のあるマテリアルをできるだけ使用し、どこにいても人の気配や光を感じることができる部屋としての快適性も重視。撮影時の大事な要素となる自然光の取り入れ方についてもシュミレーションを繰り返し、開口部には完全遮光と透過の2種類のロールカーテンを採用し、開放感を生かしながらも瞬時に光の調整ができるつくりにした。撮影パフォーマンスを最大限に引き出す場として、サウンドシステム、シャワールーム、家具の細部に至るまで、土井浩一郎氏の「真のコンフォート」をカタチにした。
