Freedom, openness and returning to simplicity are the spirits that Blue Space advocates. When Bloom Design is commissioned to do the design for this old space, it decides not to cater for popular aesthetics but to look at how to make a difference and how to shape the temperament of fashion of Blue Space.
The goal was to introduce more natural light to dark and overpowering interior. This move redefined new proportions of space and optically enlarged narrow and low room. What’s more, light and transparent finishing materials, such as glass, delicate steel mesh and perforated boards were used to emphasize the openness of new office space.
Complementing the bespoke architectural features of the space, the dramatic new entrance leads into the men’s ground floor ‘King of Trainers’. This is complimented by an impressive first floor window display extending the full frontage with ‘open’ sections to bring natural light and a feeling of openness to the space.
UNIQLO has opened global flagship stores in Europe and the United States, and has now opened a new store in Ginza, Tokyo. The twelve-story building with a full height glass façade serves as a showcase of the UNIQLO brand, and its atrium-like first and second floor creates a voluminous yet controlled space.
THE SHOP HAS AN AREA OF ~120 M2 WHERE 11 WORK STATIONS, 4 HAIR WASH BASIN STATIONS, A RECEPTION AND A WAITING ROOM ARE LOCATED IN THE SAME SPACE. WE HAVE ALSO ESTABLISHED A SEPARATE ROOM FOR THE COSMETICIAN WITH A TABLE FOR ARTIFICIAL NAIL TREATMENT AND TWO ROOMS FOR SOLARIUM INCLUDING THE NECESSARY BATHROOMS.
The project is a new flagship retail building located in Tokyo’s Aoyama shopping district, just off Omotesando Street. The design is a diagrammatic response to strict local codes, the immediate surrounding context (bordered by world-renowned architecture and a quiet residential neighborhood), and the desire to represent the material craft that is inherent in the tradition of Japanese construction. The building is designed to meet regulated energy efficiency standards and use local/regional materials.
