“The Scape” was originally designed by Kengo Kuma and built in 2005. It was a serviced apartment for wealthy people. The building was renovated by Inokuma Architects this year and the building’s function was also changed. Now it is offering a space for SOHO (Small Office/Home Office)as the managing company realized that there are more people who enjoy working freely than before – especially after the economic downturn. It is targeting on freelancers and start-up ventures. The name was also changed to “The Scape(R)”. (R) means reborn. It is located in Shibuya, Tokyo.
