Appreciation towards Klein Dytham architecture for providing the following description:

该项目位于大阪高端购物区心斋桥街角,与具有金属和玻璃外观的苹果、耐克和巴宝莉店铺一同位于交叉路口。相比之下,KDa事务所设计的立体木质立面包裹着大楼一角,给商业区带来一丝亲切与温暖。

Cartier, located on a prominent corner of Shinsaibashi, a high-end shopping district of Osaka, shares an intersection with the metallic and glassy exteriors of Apple, Nike and Burberry. By contrast, its 3-dimensional wooden facade, designed by Klein Dytham architecture (KDa), wraps the corner of the building, bringing an intimacy and warmth to the commercial area.

为了打造能够体现卡地亚专注制造值得信赖的珠宝的环保结构,KDa事务所应用可再生资源和当地手工艺。来自岐阜县和京都的桧木因暖色调和历史背景被选做立面材质,结构框架则由再生铝制成。工艺是该设计的重点,体现出卡地亚的工匠精神和对细节的一丝不苟,与日本著名的传统工艺相媲美。

To create an environmentally conscious structure that reflects Cartier’s involvement in responsible jewelry, KDa looked to renewable and recycled sources, as well as local artisanship. Hinoki (Japanese cypress) from Gifu Prefecture and Kyoto was chosen for its warm tones and historical background, and recycled aluminum used in its structural framework. Craftsmanship became a key focus of the design, a reflection of Cartier’s revered artisans and meticulous attention to detail, paralleled with Japan’s renowned traditional crafts.

立面上微微突出的交叉钻石形状借鉴了卡地亚经典珠宝以及日本传统的清酒盒。晾干桧木来自全国各地,均为60至70年的老树。主立面、壁角、踢脚和拱窗细部由12种桧木单元组成,共使用2500多个桧木块,均为京都木匠大师采用古老的细木工技艺手工制作。位于建筑一层的通高拱门和侧窗呈开启状态,吸引人们看向商店的两层楼。既有建筑和立面红线之间只有200mm的可操作区域,基于这种情况将立面与现有结构相结合是设计面临的挑战。因此,KDa事务所使用从上方下垂的铝框架支撑桧木块。

The geometric pattern of gently protruding interlocking diamonds takes inspiration from both classic Cartier jewelry and Japanese traditional hinoki masu (sake boxes). The seasoned hinoki itself hails from 60 to 70 year-old trees, all domestically sourced. Twelve different hinoki units were designed to compose the main facade, its corners, skirting and arched window details. In total, more than 2,500 units were used, each individually handcrafted and finished by Kyoto master carpenters using time-honored joinery techniques. Situated at the base of an existing building, a double-height entrance arch and side windows have been left open to draw attention to the two floors of the store. With only a 200mm zone to work with between the existing building and the boundary line, the challenge was affixing the facade to the existing structure. For this, an aluminum frame was constructed to support the hinoki units as panels, which were lowered into place from above.

作为用于寺庙、神社和楼阁以及日本浴室和餐具的材料,桧木具有天然的稳定性和耐候性。在卡地亚店铺的立面上,其天然纹理和色调通过防雨和抗紫外线清漆得到进一步保护。白天,日光将店铺的东北面照亮,增强了桧木独特的美。在夜晚的购物时间里,大阪也很热闹,为了使立面在夜间同样引人注目,设计师利用隐藏在桧木块后面的LED灯将建筑照亮。菱形体块将光线扩散,不仅增强了立面的立体感,而且散发出诱人的暖光。

As a material architecturally used for temples, shrines and castles, as well as for Japanese baths and tableware, hinoki is naturally stable and weather resistant. For the Cartier facade, it’s natural grain and tone are further protected with a rain and UV-resistant clear lacquer. In the day time, its northeast-facing side is lit up by morning sunlight, enhancing the wood’s characteristic beauty. Osaka, though, is as much alive in the evening as it is during shopping hours. To keep the facade striking at night, individual LED lights behind each unit illuminate the structure. Diffused by the box-like diamond of each section, the effect not only increases the three-dimensionality of the facade, but gives it an inviting warm glow.
