France Embassy House

Add to MyRoute
Translated from Japanese by

The new government office of the France Embassy was designed jointly with Takenaka Corporation as lead architect of the architect Pierre-Michel Delpsch and Dominick Chavannes, a France of the architectural office of the Paris Airport Authority Takenaka Corporation built a lot of Japan and France building materials (high-tech glass, etc.). As a result, an excellent environment-conscious building based on a curved curve reminiscent of a bird was completed. The main façade of the new government office is like a window opened to the France Embassy Gardens.

The garden of the France Embassy is a legacy of the Tokugawa Shogunate era, and France wants to preserve its integrity and its main features from a position that emphasizes the historical heritage. Not damaging this beautiful garden has become one of the prerequisites for rebuilding the government office from a very early stage. The new government building, which consists of a curved form and a stretched curve, not only gives the impression of being immersed in nature, but also makes the garden more valuable.
