Takenishi Terrace Coffee Shop / YRAD

This is a project that confronts the nature of the renewal of land use after a deteriorating rental building facing a shopping street was demolished. The site is in the center of Oita City, on the western edge of the oldest shopping street in the area. The bustle of the past has faded and the arcade has turned into a place that people just pass through to get somewhere else. We received a request from a client who runs a letting agency in the town to use a corner of the site where a car park was going to be built after the building was demolished for a small tenant space and a place for people to go such as a park where they can take a break, in order to bring the bustle back to the area.

Homme is not just a store, but a unique experience of an urban environment within the context of highly commercial space. Homme is a break from the usual shopping mall experience with a number of distinct aesthetic signs … The height gives the feeling of space and at the same time exposes the structure and ventilation of the space lighting systems.
