Building architecture called the Sugamo Shinking Bank is completed designed by the architect Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture. This colorful bank is located in Tokyo, Japan. This Shimura Branch of the Sugamo Shinkin Bank has very amazing and fresh design.

A rainbow mille-feuille is the architect concept for this interesting building which strives to provide the first-rate hospitality for their customer. The bank’s motto:”we take pleasure in serving happy customer” is the main idea for the architect to create a concept for this building architecture design. The Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture are also commissioned to handle the progress of the architectural and interior design for its newly rebuilt branch in Shimura after completed the design for the branch outlets of Sugano Shinkin Bank which is precisely located in Tokiwadai and Niiza. The architect sought to make a refreshing atmosphere with a palpable sense of the nature which is based on an open sky motif for this bank building project.

Building Architecture Decoration Design

This bank design is consist of 12 layers of colors which are based in a rainbow-like stack of colored layers. These full colored layers are peeking out from the building facade to welcome the bank’s visitors. Those colors are reflected onto the white surface of the bank and it leaves a faint trace over it to create a warm and a gentle feeling.

During the night, the colored layers are faintly illuminated and this illumination is so varies according to the season and the time of the day, conjuring up the myriad landscapes. To create a piece of the sky, three elliptical skylights bathe the interior in a soft light upon entering this bank. The bank’s visitors spontaneously look up to see a cut-out piece of the sky which is invites them to gaze languidly at it. The open sky and the sensation of the openness prompts the bank’s visitors to take a deep breaths, it is to refreshing their body from within.

The another attraction is the fuzzy puffs patterns which is placed in the ceiling. The ceiling is adorned with the dandelion puff patterns which seem to float and drift through the air. There is a long and cherished custom of blowing on one of these fuzzy balls while secretly making a wish in Europe. When these fuzzy puffs are carried by the wind, it is also bits of fluffy down gently dance and frolic in the air.  On the first floor, the ATMs, teller windows, consultation booths and an open space laid out with the chairs in 14 different colors are placed. At the second floor, it is occupied by the offices, meeting rooms and a cafeteria, while in the third floor is reserved for the staff changing rooms. Through the first and the second levels of the building, three long glass air wells thread and flooding the interior with the natural light as well as “blowing” air through it.
