Text description provided by the architects. A satellite office of an IT company in Tokyo, located in Kamiyama,Tokushima.

Although the office is located in the rural district where the unspoilt landscape is still maintained, the office is fully equipped with the same digital infrastructure as the main office in Tokyo, leaving no stress to the employees. While the office is built inside the cowshed, the 100 year old, beautifully aged structure is left untouched.

The steel structure is designed to take to whole load of the cowshed in order to function as a keystone, in case of major disaster or simply when the cowshed keeps degrading.
