Louis Vuitton Tokyo Flagship Store Designed by UNStudio

Louis Vuitton - noted luxury handbag designer will be opening a new flagship store in Tokyo, Japan by 2010. The ten-storey building proposed flagship store for fashion house Louis Vuitton was designed by UNStudio and takes a new environmentally friendly approach to the design and construction of the store. Inside the Louis Vuitton monogram leaf shaped building you will be able to find a few amenities such as a cafe, spa, bookstore, exhibition gallery, as well as retail space.

The following information is from UNStudio:


The design for the 10 storey (54 meter tall) flagship Louis Vuitton store in Japan aims to establish an architectural equivalent of the identity of Louis Vuitton in which classical and modern qualities are blended, reinforcing each other. The design inspires the visitor with a feeling of being in the House of Louis Vuitton by celebrating the qualities that make up the essence of the company, its products, its history and its future.

The building follows the structure of a (grand) house: with three levels, each spanning a varying number of split-level floors and each with its own atmosphere and purpose. Each floor is in principle divided into four leaves, which are set in a spiral pattern with a height difference between each leaf of 2.70 meters. Terrace zones, which offer a mix of functions in a garden setting, mark the different vertical sections of the house, with the sense of intimacy growing towards the top of the building.
