Barneys Tokyo

In 2004, Barneys New York opened an outpost in Tokyo’s bustling Ginza district housed in the prestigious Kojunsha Building, built in 1880. JHA’s design references elaborate textures and plays on depth, evoking a new interpretation of classic-modern spaces from the 1940s-1950s. By utilizing different palettes of materials, JHA created a unique feeling on each of the store’s three levels. Artistic installations throughout the space imbue the store with a sense of originality and craftsmanship. The interior’s focal point, a massive three-story, vertical brushed-steel sculpture frames a central staircase connecting all three floors. The almost-diaphanous structure was built with non-symmetrical cutouts that display designer information and acts as a backdrop for seasonal store themes.
