Rayon Du Soleil Building

Architects: BE-FUN DESIGN + Tasuesu (タスエス)

Location: Chuo, Tokyo, Japan

Following the dismantling of the renowned Tsukiji Market in Chuo ward, this residential building was an opportunity to reinvent a new identity for this former long-standing “market town”.

The owner of Rayon Du Soleil has been running a liquor store in this area for many years, and while observing the transformation of the area no longer a “market town”, he decided to make this conversion an opportunity for the area to be reborn.

The aim was to create a place where a diverse range of people could live in, including foreigners who visit this area. BE-FUN DESIGN set one dwelling unit per floor to enhance the living space and lower the footprint. In addition, each floor has a different configuration including the outdoor space, in order to accommodate a variety of uses. The residents can rather gardening in the city centre, working remotely, enjoying a family or an elegant solo life-style. This language appears on the facades and the common areas (corridors, stairs) with a dialogue between the inside and the outside. This follows the appearance of Tsukiji city made of this dual relationship between “outside” and “inside”.

When people’s lives exuded into these common areas, new communities arise and are likely to play the primary role of this architecture.
