dividing the corner site into two volumes, japanese firm junya.ishigami+associates have designed the yohji yamamoto gansevoort street store in new york. gently curving towards its peak at the end of the street, the angled structure responds to its site through its formation as a triangle. a dramatic slice enables pedestrians to cut through the city block – a welcoming shortcut, which not only makes people’s routes shorter, but it also maximizes the store’s viewing possibilities. the shop front windows line all three sides, offering a constant dialogue between the street and the japanese fashion brand’s interior.
