在日本面临人口减少、社区老龄化的今天，政府部门及地产开发商越来越多的将焦点转向郊区社区的可持续性开发。由Laguarda.Low Architects（LLA建筑设计公司）负责总体规划和建筑设计的Grandberry Park就是一个在此背景下诞生的公园型商业综合体改造项目。

Grandberry Park represents a groundbreaking, transit-oriented development conceived through a master plan that seamlessly connects the new lifestyle center to the adjacent Tsuruma Park. Set on the city’s Tokyu Denen-tonshi train line, Laguarda.Low Architects’ design for Grandberry Park includes an outdoor retail village which forms a simple, European-style loop with open plazas for leisure and entertainment. With 240+ stores and a robust food and beverage selection, the outdoor shopping destination offers a range of experiences to keep the guest engaged. Since opening in late 2019, Grandberry Park has continued to gain momentum as a popular shopping and leisure destination. With a host of sustainable features implemented at the site, the project was recently awarded LEED Gold Certification.

Located a 30-minute train ride from the center of Tokyo, Grandberry Park is a new paradigm in mixed-use lifestyle centers. Developed through a public-private partnership, the site includes the lifestyle center, Minamimachida train station, a library, official Snoopy museum, multiple children’s playgrounds, and great lawn all integrated with the adjacent Tsuruma Park. Laguarda.Low Architects’ application of thoughtful urban planning principles ensures that the center is not only a popular destination but also a benefit to the surrounding community. Grandberry Park acts as a third place, a community center and place to socialize and meet with friends. At its core, the project succeeds in bringing the public and private sectors together to redevelop the urban infrastructure and create a new “living-base” at a connectivity point where nature and activity can merge.

From its inception, Grandberry Park set to improve upon the typical shopping and leisure experience through a combination of built form and open, natural spaces. By taking advantage of existing site conditions, the retail site remains elevated, melding seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. A series of seven public plazas strategically located between retail shops serve as an additional connecting element.

Visitors navigating the site are thus linked to nature along every step of the way, with opportunities to gather on a bench, view a public event or picnic on the great lawn. Creating open spaces where communities can gather alongside major retail destinations ensures that the district remains active and varied, and that engaging experiences exist throughout the day, week, and year. The result is that rather than a stop and go visit, guests can make Grandberry Park a full-day experience. At Grandberry Park the design worked with existing grade changes to make variances in height at the site, an advantage rather than a design obstacle. Laguarda.Low Architects’ solution included bringing the area up to grade with a new sloped green roof that covers the retail area and serves to highlight the spaces in-between buildings as well as the structures themselves. The green roof of the building connects the retail to the park by creating a smooth transition while offering up breathtaking views of Mount Fuji.

In line with Laguarda.Low Architects’ holistic approach to designing healthy, energy-efficient environments, Grandberry Park received LEED Gold Certification in two categories – New Construction and Neighborhood Development. This is the first time ever in Japan that a project has been awarded both certifications.

在Grandberry Park项目的设计中，我们应用了多种手段以达到高效节能的可持续设计标准。本项目已经获得美国绿色建筑委员会LEED 新建建筑及绿色社区两项金级认证。自开业以来，日本多家权威媒体相继报道了Grandberry Park获得的成功。作为东京郊区最新购物休闲目的地，Grandberry Park持续获得超高人气，并获得了由日本国土交通省颁发的都市景观大奖。
WALKABLE PEDESTRIAN NETWORK INTERTWINED WITH NATURE：Relocating a roadway that previously separated the commercial facilities from the park created a safe pedestrian walkway connecting the north and south of Minami-machida station.
IMPLEMENTATION OF GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE：The site adopted permeable pavement and bioswales, establishing a mechanism for returning and recharging rainwater into the ground.

The Lifestyle Center at Grandberry Park is defined by a mix of intimate, low-slung structures with varying facades in an array of materials. Our design allows for maximum future flexibility of the retail spaces while still incorporating individuality into the storefronts. Additionally, sections of the second-floor circulation are integrated within the building volume to help retain the unique look of a village. The result is a pedestrian- scale elevation in tune with the surrounding residential landscape.

The new arrival sequence sets the stage for the experience at Grandberry Park. Visitors who enter through the upgraded Minami-machida station are welcomed with a tiered garden and water feature representing the Sakai river. The design intent is to create a transitional experience that brings the visitor into a park-like setting before leaving the station. Ascending the grand stair, wide expansive sky, and visible greenery open to the multi-level lifestyle center. Located in the center of the village, and cutting through the parking structure, the Gathering Market is food hall with restaurants offering fresh vegetables, meats, and fish.
