UNIQLO was registered as the first building design of “UNIQLO PARK Yokohama Bayside Store” on December 2nd under the “Building Design” that was approved by the revised Design Law that came into effect on April 1st this year. Announced that it has acquired.
The UNIQLO PARK Yokohama Bayside store will open in April. It is a park with a slide, a jungle gym, bouldering and climbing facilities on the sloped roof. You can access each floor in the store from the rooftop, and you can enjoy shopping after playing in the park.
Based on the grand concept of “PLAY,” total producer Kashiwa Sato built the vision of turning UNIQLO and GU stores into parks, and architect Sou Fujimoto was in charge of the basic concept and design supervision. The playground equipment was installed in collaboration with Bornelund Inc., which sells educational toys.
In addition, at the UNIQLO Harajuku store, which opened in June this year, the interior design registration of the floor “UT POP OUT”, where you can experience the world of UT, was approved.
The floor features an interior where LED messages run between the UTs displayed in the showcase like art works, and the latest UT images flow on the huge screen at the back of the store. It exhibits and sells the latest UT items in collaboration with various artists and brands, and is positioned as a base for disseminating information on art and culture.
“UT POP OUT” was designed with Mr. Sato, the total creative director of the store, as the world’s largest UT-only sales floor that doubles as the entrance on the first floor. The company intends to continue to make full use of its design power to create innovative and attractive stores.
