Senbikiya Facade Design


  • building site : Tokyo Japan
  • principal use : shop
  • completion date : 02.2002


This is the façade design of the temporary shop of Senbikiya. It will be used until the completion of its new building in Autumn 2005. In this design we were conscious of the historical background of Nihonbashi, while considering its new possibilities. The curved wall is designed in contrast with its surrounding townscape, distinguishing the building. Acryl is placed in between the panel joints. At night stripes made of light are created.
