- private house
This is a project for a new boutique of dogdeco, well-known for producing sundry items for dog centered lifestyles.
The plot was selected in suburban Tokyo along the Chuo-line where the owner who had been operating a branch store in a famed department store in Sinjuku wished to settle his residence and boutique gallery for multi-use.
To utilize the favor of the corner lot, the first floor which functions as a roadside boutique and gallery is sustained by series of reinforced concrete columns as for the natural light to pervade into reticularly.
The second story lays not only residence but the show room with creative contrivances where customers go through “pet life” .
The view of the exterior form of western red cedar box on glazed concrete stylobates from the front street is spectacular.
Surely dogdeco will be a topic of news in its neighborhood.
