The stylish Ginza Place by Klein Dytham architecture wins the WAN Facade Award 2017

We are delighted to congratulate Klein Dytham architecture, winners of the WAN Facade Award 2017 for their beautiful and polished design, Ginza Place.

Klein Dytham architecture's design was chosen by an expert judging panel, who recently viewed the shortlist of six entries to select their overall winner. This year’s jury, chosen for their expertise were: Becher Neme, Founder at Neme Design Studio, Jennifer Dixon, Head of Architecture in Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMIA) at AECOM, Ian Ritchie, Director at Ian Ritchie Architects and Benedict Tranel, Principal at Gensler.

Jury quotes:

“Excellent concept and translation into a visual metaphor for Sukashibori - and for the rising Sapporo beer bubble.” Ian Ritchie

“A beautiful essay in form and context, with particular attention to the interaction with human scale.” Jennifer Dixon

“The design draws inspiration from a local cultural icon to develop a contemporary and original building envelope, showcasing a high standard of craftsmanship both in design and execution.” Becher Neme

We’d like to take the opportunity to thank not only the jury, but all who entered their projects into this year’s WAN Facade Award 2017. Congratulations once again to Klein Dytham architecture.
