This is the third one of ROKU store. As the floor area is 200 square meters and the ceiling height is 4.3 meter, the store is designed like a street-level store although it is located in a shopping complex. Encircled utterly by solid wood walls, the store does not look so closed, rather demonstrating its existence and stimulating shoppers’ curiosity. When you enter the space within the walls, you will find a park-like open space, which makes shoppers comfortable and relaxed.
