Takeo Kikuchi Shibuya // Schemata Architects


Takeo Kikuchi is one of the most distinguished and long-time popular menswear brand in Japan established in 1984. The brand is opening the long-awaited Global Flagship Store in Shibuya. The site is a very wide and flat site located along Meiji Douri Avenue. Four entrances are located along the street, so customers can enter from various points and freely stroll around the space, while looking at display furniture that is randomly located across the space like a forest. Schemata Architects didn’t want to set a singular circulation route, and they prepared multiple circulation routes as if the streets are extending into the store.
