Sembikiya Sohonten Temporary Store


Design: Hirotaka Sato Teledesign (co-design)
Site: Nihonbashi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
Use: Store
Completion: 2002.02


Facade design for a temporary store until the Sembikiya Sohonten is relocated to a new store that will be completed in the fall of 2005.
While conscious of the dignity and history of Nihonbashi, the white curved surface accentuates the contrast with the townscape, and I was conscious of the future potential of Nihonbashi.
Acrylic is sandwiched between the panel joints, and at night, the light that enters from the forehead appears as soft streaks.
