Although the site is quite small, variety of goods are displayed within the store. Shoes are located on 1F, and there is a rough finished staircase to the 2F.

On the 2F, the layout was mainly designed for apparel goods but there is also a gallery section to exhibit riders’ signature display and other objects showing a history of the brand. A series of original exhibitions can be held at this gallery section.

Materials such as bare steel, mesh, mortar etc… , which indicate ‘ Street ‘ or ‘ Park’ were applied to give a sharp and street-like look to the shop. Graphics on the facade can be replaced for each seasons, so that the brand can appeal to passersby.
