Yohji Yamamoto Flagship Store - 2007

2007, Antwerp (BE)

The Yohji Yamamoto flagshipstore is located in Antwerp at the ground floor of the Fashion Museum.

How to make people sense the intimacy and to come to an understanding of the work of Yohji Yamamoto?

A continuous landscape is created by adding lot of light, visually uniting in- and outside. Architectural attributes like transparency, accessibility, permeability and visibility are thereby introduced.  The inside space is perceived as a part of urban life.

Invisible acoustic insulation on ceiling and walls, to gradually mute sound, initiate a change of heart between being in a state of protection (as a result of the contemporary city as sociologist Georg Simmel states) and being engaged to relate and to sense intimacy.
