  • Global Gateway Shinagawa

    Pickard Chilton recently completed the master plan and concept design for the Global Gateway Shinagawa, the redevelopment of the northern portion of Tokyo’s Shinagawa Station. Phase 1 of the development was recently reviewed by the Council on National Strategic Special Zones and certified by Prime Minister Shinzō Abe. Initial phases are expected to be completed by 2024.

    Envisioned as a new global hub connecting Tokyo to the world, the Global Gateway Shinagawa has been designed as a next-generation urban environment that symbolizes Japan's openness and is a catalyst for innovative, international companies to create new businesses and cultures. The key design concepts for the development include:

    • Organize buildings along the 1.6 km/1.0 mile-long site as an “archipelago” of diverse uses and unique public spaces;
    • Interconnect the buildings with a richly-landscaped pedestrian promenade that flows with a series of public parks and plazas;
    • Create a cohesive architectural identity for buildings within the development; and,
    • Respectfully integrate the Takanawa Gateway Station by Kengo Kuma & Associates.

    In addition to leading the Design Code and Master Plan for Global Gateway Shinagawa, Pickard Chilton is designing Block IV within the development. Within two 30-story towers connected by a seven-story podium, the mixed-use complex comprises over 460,000 m2/4.9 million gsf and will include offices, a five-star hotel, conference spaces, and retail.

    Images above are conceptual and subject to change.

  • Plieninger Straße 140 Development

    After an invited international competition, the Pickard Chilton-led team was selected to master plan and design an urban development at Plieninger Straße 140 in Stuttgart. The objective was to envision a sustainable, high-quality and future-oriented urban development that maximizes landscape open space while integrating the broader urban context. The resulting three-phase master plan yields a development with 125,000 m2 of above-ground gross floor area across six high-performance buildings.

    Responding to the design brief’s guiding principles, the concept, entitled “Die Fuge” (“The Seam”), is a sweeping public space that defines the center of the master plan. Concentrating building density to the east and west of the site, Die Fuge’s curving form creates an inviting new public realm while meeting the project’s environmental goals. The buildings respond to the site’s topography with a series of occupiable green roof terraces with integrated photovoltaic panels.

    Flexible and modular H-shaped office buildings create exterior courtyards for drop-offs and access to bicycle storage and amenities. Inherent flexibility in planning supports long-term building resiliency and responsiveness to market conditions.
