COREDO MUROMACHI complex by A.N.D., Tokyo – Japan

October 18th, 2014 by retail design blog

The third COREDO MUROMACHI complex opened with a desire to ensure Edo period (1603-1868) values were successfully passed on to future generations. Under the theme “rhythm of the street”, COREDO MUROMACHI 3 captures the feel of Chuo-dori (avenue), formerly Nihonbashi-dori (avenue), in Edo times. In the hand-scroll painting Kidai Shoran, which depicts Nihonbashi-dori in the Edo period, large stores line the street; their shelves stretch out in rows, cloth curtains displaying store logos hang over entrances, and wooden koshi grating protects store fronts. Using materials familiar to Japanese culture and climate, the comfortable and pleasing rhythm and vibrancy of the period was recreated here with a fresh, new design suited to modern times.
