Maruno Ceramic Tiles Co., Ltd. (Maruno INC.) is celebrating its 90th anniversary. This is a plan to rebrand and renovate the headquarters of a company supporting the well-known tile projects of Morioka City buildings. Maruno Corporation has been engaged in tile projects for almost 90 years since its inception, and its headquarters building has a history of 50 years, accumulating long-term technology and history.

The renovation design is not a complete makeover. Still, it uses the concept of tiles, with history “covering” and “stacking” like tiles, using “layers” as the design concept, and designing both exterior and interior in this style.

The design emphasises showcasing the history of Maruno, tiles, and the company’s headquarters building, expressing it like “layers” on the exterior and interior design.

The exterior design uses a “double-skin” structure to improve thermal insulation performance and reduce solar load, among other environmental performance factors.

In the interior design, a “ノ-shaped counter” is set up to trace the history of tiles and display their types and trends. The space design has an exhibition room style, allowing visitors to experience various tiles and their usage.
