The constant presence of vending machines in Tokyo made us transform and use a concept of movement in an urban scale. Using the idea of stationary and independent spaces to rest, accessed through a specific number and movement. We then have a building machine in a city scale, where the still rooms are conceived as the product we access through the elevators.

The program is distributed in slots and a large crack that divides the use of the side pieces. We extend the side next to the Subway trough the building. While the opposite side contains the program management, restoration and karaoke rooms.

The karaoke suites are located in the upper volume of the building, connected with the multifunction area through a bi-directional elevator system. This system is inspired on a vending machine and it works dividing the building in three areas. The users of the karaoke suites arrange the suites in the third floor and after take an elevator which carry them directly to the room arranged.
