December 16, 2022 marks the 7th anniversary of Kojima Productions, established in 2015. Earlier this year, the studio began relocating to a new space, and today they published an article showing off their new offices.
Introducing the New KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS Studio in Tokyo
The new KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS studio has been renovated according to the theme of a “Spaceship Transformation”.
The new studio has been designed to express the playful spirit and innovative nature of KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS, while also expanding the functionality required by a creative studio.
It also aims to meet the needs of the modern workforce, with every consideration taken to allow people to work in a comfortable and safe environment.
１. Office Areas
Designed to Encourage Communication
Our studio space is open-plan and has no partitions, allowing staff to look out across the entire space. Different teams can work from the same vantage point, allowing for lots of interaction across various positions.
The Tiered Gallery:
This space is used to watch movies or to check video content.
A space to take a break or have meetings while enjoying the view.
The counter that runs along the side of the wall is a good spot for casual conversation, encouraging communication between staff members.
Refresh & Communicate
This space has around 150 seats, making it ideal for eating lunch or taking a quick break. Tokyo Tower can be seen through the window, along with the skyscrapers of Minato-ku.
A Bilateral Space:
A combination of two atmospheres: one mellow and wood-covered, the other white and surrealistic.
Large Screens & Speakers:
Two large screens, along with projectors and surround-sound speakers, have been fitted on the window side of the room.
The wall near the entrance marks the connections made by our visitors.
