This project is a renovation of the façade of the building and of a shop for rental with furnitures, facilities, and all. The design concept is “a drop.” The idea behind the concept is of a drop of water falling slowly and soaking deeply into the deep sea. The building is located in a busy area on a noisy street in downtown Yokohama, and there is a feeling of time passing quickly all around. The designer dared to envision the façade entrance to this basement space as a place where time stands still.
