Moving Mountains…

…The idea of moving walls in a dwelling or work place is a practical use of space.  Rearranging our environment as we see fit is equivalent to moving mountains.  Wall Cloud was devised by Sasaki Architecture for a former waterfront warehouse in the Minato district of Tokyo that operated as a popular disco called Juliana’s Tokyo in the early 1990s. “The attic part of the former discotheque on the second floor remained untouched for a long time, since it had a low ceiling height, causing an oppressive feeling in the space,” said the architects. To increase the ceiling height, the designers removed the existing false ceiling and added sections of wall under the beams to segment the space into individual offices.
