We performed the interior design for the Tokyo office of AKQA, a global ideas and innovation company.

minä perhonen is a fashion brand and we performed the interior design for their new directly-managed shop minä perhonen koti. The shop mainly showcasing household goods is found on the 1st floor of the Shonan T-SITE complex, where many tenants are located around a Tsutaya book store. The name of the store “koti”, meaning house in Finnish, derives from the fact that it handles everyday life items, such as cushions and tableware. Thus, deliverables included a space to carefully present small objects and showcase product line-ups with color variations.
Yamada Sen-I Co., Ltd. is a furoshiki (wrapping cloth) manufacturer based in Kyoto and we performed the renovations for their directly-managed official shop; “Musubi.” Since the store is located in a quiet area of Harajuku, Tokyo, deliverable included a space to showcase the furoshiki designs on sale by increasing available store space and improving the visibility of the store’s interior.

Peekaboo House is located near Newington Green in N1, Islington and benefits from the side access and parking space where our site was identified. The clients were current residents of the property and had already completed extensive refurbishment works in addition to the modern glazed extension at Lower Ground floor completed by the previous owner. Our brief was to create an effective separate single bed dwelling for a nanny with the impending arrival of their first child. Although we were able to utilise some of the side access to form the new addition the client was insistent upon retaining the parking space and as much of the rear patio as possible. Furthermore it was important to retain an access for the client from front to back via the side access to ensure security of the overall property was in their control.
