Cosmetic brand SHISEIDO’s flagship shop in Ginza was remodeled recently. It is a four-storied multi-functional building that has cosmetic areas, a hair salon, some esthetic salons, and a cafe for event. The spatial design concept of this project is “the interior wearing make-up” and cosmetic materials like manicure, eye shadow, and cotton puff, are applied to the finishing work of the construction. A shadow of corporate flower camellia was represented around the interior. Being aware of global shoppers, environmental design quotes some of Japanese aesthetic and traditional craftsmanship.

ACCENTURE INNOVATION HUB IN TOKYO

(Page 66)



Global consulting firm Accenture opened its innovation hub to present Japanese information on innovation. The eighth floor is the front door to an emergent meeting space, as a neighborhood, for researchers from universities and entrepreneurs, and other collaborators. It is so open and has a symbolic scaffold in the center and there are flexible booths, like food stands, with tansushaped counters whose Japanese details showing off their presence.
The ninth floor, based upon a theme of a townhouse, seems so domesticated and comfortable that talented people airily work together to making things, interacting with experts and geeks with various backgrounds. There is also a “hanare, an isolated area” used for long-haul sessions.

THINK LAB

(Page 119)



JINS, a famous eye wear company operate this working office.
The spatial concept is “the best surroundings where someone can focus on”. Incorporating many elements of shrines and temples, this space introduced sequences for intense concentration. Going through the entrance of the office here is like entering torii shrine gate. A long narrow approach is similar to a visiting path to a shrine and visitors will get to a bright garden and work space beyond after entering the approach. A cafe next to the work space is for users to relax. A path to exit is dark and soothing for switching off. Regarding lighting, eating, and audiovisual controlling, this establishment provides an optimum lab, basing on scientific research.
