  • CLIENT:Sugamo Shinkin Bank
  • PROJECT:emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design
  • TITLE:Sugamo Shinkin Bank Series (Tokiwadai, Shimura, Ekoda Branches)
  • CONSTRUCTION:2010-2011-2012, Tokyo, Japan

Mr. Tamura asked Emmanuelle Moureaux to design a bank where local people could feel relaxed and at their ease, a place on a par with park or public venue. There are no commercial signs, unlike other banks which tend to use highly impacting ones, but the façade itself is designed in a way to attract passers-by.
