The Club is the first satellite facility in its 90+ year history, dating back to the 1920s when the first American Club was established in Tokyo. Given the fact that the facility is for select membership and its size being considerably smaller than the main facility in Azabudai, we envisioned the Nihonbashi facility as a large "home" for the TAC family, where members would desire to frequently "return", rather than "visit". The facility consists of a fitness center, a bar/restaurant area, and a VIP room, all of which are covered under a single gently-sloped "roof". The consistent materiality and detailing of the roof-like ceiling is the most important design element connecting the separate areas of the Club both visually and emotionally. American black walnut, basalt stone, brass and custom wool carpet work in harmony to create spaces that represent American richness and Japanese sense of craft.
