Renovation of the historical department store, which is listed as an important cultural property of Japan. The interior design concept is “a shining, white forest.” A pillar-supported “tree canopy” extends throughout the first floor of the main building and is beautifully illuminated with a gradation of light to provide a sense of unity in the retail space. Downlights are mounted in the geometrical ceiling pattern to emphasize paths of circulation and host gathering areas for customers.
