About the Project

As the face of the city of Fuji, the historical Shin-Fuji High-speed rail station and its commercial area are revived in this project.

By focusing on functionality and circulation of the station, we aim to realize the requested concept “Compact City”- a local government project to bring out a lively station-centered community. While crowded areas spot the city in patches, the city of Fuji is no exception to the severe social problem of declining population of Japan. With much anticipation and support to represent and promote the city, shops were consolidated into the bigger station area, and the project employed local workforce and lumber materials.

With calm and rich wooden feel to the atmosphere, the designed convenience of the information counter, lounge, and interactive features of the station will lead to gained traffic, impression and improvement of lives in Fuji.

What’s unique about it

The city of Fuji is in Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan, and is known for the infamous Volcano peak Mt.Fuji. Our team worked closely with the local government to bring out the next stage of social planning, and to accommodate the change of demographics and the visiting population. While this station host a large commercial building called Asty, we have created a space that enables dwelling for visitors and set a tone of Fuji, as a city that continue to thrive in the next generations.
