Proposed Louis Vuitton Flagship Store in Japan

UNStudio, a Dutch architecture firm has been commisioned by LVMH to design Louis Vuitton’s flagship store in Japan  which is a futuristic 10-storey landmark building that consists of retail space, café, spa, bookstore, as well as an event and exhibition space. UNStudio aims to establish an architectural equivalent of the identity of Louis Vuitton in which classical and modern qualities are blended, reinforcing each other.UN1 Proposed Louis Vuitton Flagship Store in Japan

The elements that represent the classical values connected to the Louis Vuitton brand are implicitly present throughout the design. These elements are to a large extent identical to the modernity also implicit in the name Louis Vuitton, along with the value of inventiveness. The element that moves through all the scale levels of the design is the leaf shape. The leaf is found in the floor plan, in the section and in the elevation. It has been applied to the construction also, responding to location-specific constructional demands. Leaf-shaped openings in the façade give the building a strong identity with landmark potential, while complying with the necessity for discreetness with respect to visibility from the outside. The leaf shape can be seen as bearing a connection to the famous Louis Vuitton monogram.

The building follows the structure of a grand house: with three levels, each spanning a varying number of split-level floors and each with its own atmosphere and purpose. Each floor is in principle divided into four leaves, which are set in a spiral pattern with a height difference between each leaf of 2.70 meters. Terrace zones, which offer a mix of functions in a garden setting, mark the different vertical sections of the house, with the sense of intimacy growing towards the top of the building.

  8. UPS won’t get it there any faster. What happens is (or at least what I was told when I did this), the box gets shipped to a US Army Post Office facility in the US (I think it’s in NY) that handles Army/military mail to the Middle East. So basically, if you pay for expedited shipping, that will only give you quick shipping to the Army Post Office in NY – from that point on, it’s up to the Army how quickly the box gets there. I used to send a ton of packages, and the time varied from one week to around a month for delivery, depending on the time of year. Christmas usually takes awhile, so it is best to send as early as possible, or wait and send a New Years gift instead :) I’ve heard that some people will vacuum pack their homemade goods to make sure they’re fresh when they get there…never tried it myself, but it’s worth a shot! Good luck!

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  17. Very useful information. I appreciate your effort, very well written article.
