HUDSONS flagship shop, a tailor made shoes brand is located in Yokohama, Japan. This shop was a renovation work of an old building second floor.

It opens at Wednesday night only.

Our design made the most of the aging texture of existing concrete slabs and walls.And planning bases on black hanging walls made of wood fiberboard and white podiums made of stucco finishes.

The hanging wall divides into guest space and backyard area.

It surrounds guest space, and provides comfortable sound conditions as acoustic panels. And the space between this wall and the floor frames the scene of shoes.

White podiums are spaces for guests and shoes.

Our planning aimed at setting up a place where the guest not selecting from several but coming face to face with a pair of shoes, so we treated equally the guest space and the shoes space.
