Colorful Bank In Japan

su03 540x383 Colorful Bank In Japan

 

su07 540x405 Colorful Bank In Japan

Emmanuelle Moureaux architecture + design has completed ‘Sugamo Shinkin Bank’,a credit union located in Shimura, Japan. The design, an offset volume of rainbow-like layers, is the third branch designed by Moureaux.

Tacked slabs in twelve saturated colors dominate the exterior facade and contrast the stark white panels that enclose the building. Looking to create a refreshing atmosphere with a palpable sense of nature, the color gently transition until they disappear into the sky. Softly reflected onto the white surfaces, the hues create a warm and diffused exterior which provide a sense of ease and solitude.                                                                 At night, the layers are faintly illuminated, varying in accordance to weather and the season.

Emmanuelle Moureaux is a french architect and designer residing in Tokio. She graduated in 1995 from the architecture school in Bordeaux.
