Taking this unique location as a characteristic, the facade is designed to be rhythmical that changes expression as people see from different angles. The colors, flowers and trees appear in and out from the repetition of floating cubes, playing rainbow melody. From the architects
The site is located on the corner of major intersection, where there is a frequent movement of cars, bicycles and people. Sugamo Shinkin Bank by Emmanuelle Moureaux

Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design have designed a colorful boxy exterior for the Nakaaoki Branch of the Sugamo Shinkin Bank in Tokyo, Japan. The melody spreads happiness and comfort to visitors and to the people in the local community. Small elevated gardens are built inside 12 cubes, where the seasonal changes in nature are expressed by seasonal flowers like marigold, lavender, and growing trees such as olive tree. Colors appear in and out from the rhythmical repetition of cubes, dancing like musical notes playing rainbow melody. Architect: Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design
