DOMICILE FINDS A HOME IN TOKYO

In the fast-evolving fashion area of Harajuku in Tokyo, a new store has emerged called Domicile Tokyo which helps ensure the city remains in the vanguard of retail design.

The street wear brand is an initiative from local rapper Ryuzu and is housed in what is a traditional two-level Japanese house. From the outside tradition has been retained with a garden featuring Bonsai trees and water features, however on the inside it’s been stripped back to raw concrete with attractive exposed wooden beams.

The corner house backs onto the garden and the floor to ceiling glass windows and sliding Fusuma doors provides an inside/outside feel. The exterior features corrugated iron panels that are reminiscent of outback Australia.

Within, minimalism is the design brief with product confined to the perimeter of the store. The clothing is located under the wooden beams and behind intermittent red glass panels.

The new store will also host a series of pop-stores inside the space with new brands.
