Crescent House, originally designed by revered architect Shigeru Ban, is located in Minami-Hakone, Shizuoka Japan. Its glass-fronted, C-shaped construction is configured to accentuate the northern vistas and frames views to Mount Fuji.
We were commissioned by the current owner to design a visual identity and online presence for Crescent House.
The house's distinctive design elements set the bases for its visual language. Bespoke glyphs were designed to reflect the building's C-shaped curve and viewing position on Mount Fuji and the minimal, contemporary aesthetic of the architecture helped define the overall visual styling.
