| CONCEPT

The facade design of a temporary store until the Senbikiya head office is relocated to a new store completed in the fall of 2005.
While conscious of the depth and history of Nihonbashi, the white curved surface accentuated the contrast with the townscape, conscious of the potential of Nihonbashi in the future.
Acrylic is sandwiched between the panel joints, and the light entering from the forehead emerges as a soft streak at night.
