acrylic shop

this small shop is an 11m long, two-story high building which is 2.5m wide at one end and  just 60cm at the other. although the building is rather small, it has a prominent position facing a well-trafficked road. being nearly all front, it has become an inhabitable billboard. a strong, simple image of a birch grove stenciled in white is used onto the glass façade and the back wall is painted bright green. by day, the graphic becomes a simple form of sun-shading. by night, green light dapples over the intersection.
