Photo Studio is a minimalist space located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Hiroki Tominaga – Atelier. The project was to create a studio for photographing objects and publications within a residential scene. It was essential to have a self-supporting modular wooden one-story space underneath the existing steel frame. At the top of the 2.7m-high wall is a small ceiling that looks like a casket with a lighting layer above it. There is a makeup room attached to the studio, and a non-air-conditioned semi-outdoor space between the main body and the existing housing. Using the original warehouse structure as a workshop, about 230 pieces of four-inch square distribution materials were delivered directly from the sawmill were processed and assembled on the spot.
