A public-private warehouse, as long as the wharf site, used for processing dry goods to be distributed into Nagasaki Harbor.
The warehouse has a rooftop promenade accessible and open to the public. It is 200 meters long, 25 meters wide and an average of 22 meters high, dimensions comparable to a tanker. It is organized in 3 essential parts: a two level warehouse on the bottom, a public garden on its roof and a 20 meters diameter spherical exhibition hall.
The roof-scape, a new elevated ground floor plane, provides a public link between the new ferry terminal and retail elements on the new wharf and the center of the city. The garden is a present-day version of the traditional "dry" gardens of Tokyo, and serves as the main public space on the wharf.
