after having completed the design for the branch of the sugamo shinkin bank in tokiwadai and niiza, the design team of emmanuelle moureaux was commissioned to handle the architectural and interior design for the newly rebuilt branch in shimura.
the three storey mostly white building has got an expressive coloured façade on the southwest side: twelve horizontal layers with different shadings reaching far over the sidewalk emphasizing the entrance and protecting the interiour against heat.
