jo nagasaka of tokyo-based schemata architecture office has conceived a series of concept retail stores for japanese design brand CIBONE‘s new line and the flagship location, ‘today’s special jiyugaoka’ in tokyo, japan. minimal interventions to renovate the previous store offer a dramatic transformation, removing the facade’s dated cladding and using porcelain enamel surfaces at the street level entrance to introduce hand-written signage in chalk. an arrangement of hanging potted plants and window boxes within a quaint garden plot at the entry welcome customers into the store.

original internal partitions were eliminated to produce a the open and airy interior to display the wide range of products geared towards improving daily lifestyles. shelving and storage fixtures range from prefabricated steel racks to moveable wooden elements to suit diverse purposes and objects. the contemporary and liveable atmosphere is produced by the contrasting textures of the hard metal and tender wood.
