la poser

The owners are stylish couples in their 20s. Both of them had improved their ability in famed apparel brands and started to search a plot in their hometown, Kohriyama where they wished to establish a select shop (a space that provides wide variety of goods to the shoppers and often displays the latest brands) of French brands.

They eventually decided to purchase the corner of the tranquil, verdant high class residence area far from the downtown. This choice visions their high aesthetic sense. The project initiated with their ambition toward their ideal store.

la poser adopted 3 stories high and the steel structure. The 1st floor and the 2nd floor lay their select shop and café to realize their ideal styles and the 3rd floor holds their private housing. The lifestyle in SOHO with haute couture is just about to begin in Kohriyama.
