Amano Design Office has gone in and renovated an office building in Tokyo, with the project titled 'Dear Jingumae.' The design stands out due to its irregular surface and stark white coloring.

According to DesignBoom, "the computer-designed billowing structure calls to mind the soft texture of fabric, revitalizing the neighborhood at a time of economic stagnation." Indeed, the building helps to elevate the look of the street, as it stands out from most other structures on the block. Instead of the area just being another place in Tokyo, it now has more of a presence and draw for people visiting the area.

The curved surface consists of metal louvres , which also provide a glimpse into the inside of the building.
