Nave, Japan. A retail store prototype, SAS, 2005 Rather than thinking of an overall spatial atmosphere with generic fixtures for the display of clothing, a rather plain space with very specific and detailed display fixtures as the things which defined the store始s spatial experience was conceived.

bathroom, a custom white marble hand rinse basin, and a custom designed refrigerated display case to define a comfortable modern neighborhood hangout.
