scale resort facility based upon regional revitalization covering six

TOKYOBIKE TOKYO opened as the flagship shop of bicycle
brand “tokyobike” in Kiyosumishirakawa, Tokyo. Renovated from
a steel frame warehouse, the store also has a plant shop “The
Plant Society Tokyo Flagship” and coffee shop “ARiSE COFFEE
PATTANA” as the tenants. The third floor is an office. The ground
floor and the second floor are connected by a big wooden steps

Mame Kurogouchi Hanegi

(Page  84)



This small store in an old wooden row hose is the first companyoperated
store for women’s brand Mame Kurogouchi. It is located
in Hanegi, where Maiko Kurogouchi, the brand designer, has an
atelier and she hopes that shoppers feel the everyday scenery
related to her. The facade is fully glazed and the back wall is also
glazed so that you can see views of the neighborhood. To present
that the store symbolizes the ideas of Kurogouchi the store is
inserted into house, and 13㎜ thin concrete is placed to harden
the peripheries of existing wooden structure, showing striking
contrast between the new part and old part of the building. You
can not see any items through the glazed facade and you will
encounter garment as you walk in. A big fitting room is spacious
for you to face carefully what you chose.

NAKAGAMI nakameguro

(Page  88)
 


NAKAGAMI, Tokyo and Hiroshima based apparel brand, opened
the first company-operated store with a press room to
communicate the brand’s ideas. The walls of ground story were
cleared to insert one boxy big sales area, 7m×3m. The
intermediate area between the exterior and interior are like a
blank, used on multi-purpose. The raceways, which are usually
used to fix lighting, composed the box frames of the shop. Pale
brown polycarbonate boards cover walls and the ceiling and floor
is covered with navy carpet. The contrast between crude
architectural materials with elegant color of the floor fully brings
out the luxury of the brand.

(Page  92)



In a department store, light steel framed walls and piles of plastic
baskets make this small shop intriguing. As shops in department
stores generally change in a short period, this project is utterly
composed of removable members so that it can be easily
disassembled. Stacked shopping baskets fixed with polystyrene
foam make display tables for bags and accessories. Spatial
design for elegant merchandises paradoxically makes the most of
supermarket kind of everyday elements to show attractive contrast
in the interior.

Off-White GINZA SIX

(Page  122)



Virgil Abloh, creative director of Off-White, calls this store
environment of Off-White GINZA SIX “warehouse surrealism”.
Spatial design of the store combined construction and
dismantlement. Most materials are common and painted off-white
to be used like collage. A lot of steel wire mesh and white brick
with logo were used. The facade looks being under construction
or still constructing. Atmosphere of the environment looks
industrial;truss reinforcement materials are used as hanger rods,
bench stools are made of reinforcing bars, and concrete floor is
covered with wire mesh pattern carpet.
