Flagship retail building in Tokyo for Marc Jacob was designed by Jaklitsch / Gardner Architects. The concept is a response to strict local codes, graphically combined with traditional Japanese materials. Also the building achieves efficiency standards with a system of energy regulation. The building has two main showrooms, storage & a small sales area in the basement. It also contains a traditional element common to other buildings, called kosabutski & used to hide equipment on the roof and makes it look higher the building. For this extension is necessary a design with a continuous & that breaks the continuous line of the building. The building has a minimalist ground floor, a continuous flow between the street and the interior. A second heavy and dark floor to create an intimate space & customers can feel at home. On the top have a custom shadow line. The balance is created through the proportions of each floor.
