Recommended Shibuya Scramble Square Shops & Restaurants
An urban core, connecting traffic with facilities, helping to visualize the movements and bustle of Shibuya’s commuters.
The commercial shopping and restaurant area in Shibuya Scramble Square, the new large-scale complex and land mark of the ever-progressing city, is an urban mall spanning from the 2nd floor of the basement up to the 14th floor.
The concept behind the mall is just right for Shibuya, the city of change and creation. Poised at giving customers a seasonal experience that resonates with the heart, it is a self-proclaimed forever a la mode facility offering patrons the latest trends at each of its 212 establishments.
The concept for this project was “ASOVIVA,” a playful compound coinage of asobiba, or “place for playing.” We hoped to create somewhere that could give trend seeking Shibuya visitors a feeling of “viva” any day of the week.
We concluded that expressing the potential that Shibuya possesses as well as the energy emitted by the sum of its people, things, activities and services would fit the concept just right so we filled the walkways and other shared public sections with diverse broad standing design motifs to incorporate Shibuya’s innate personality.
We set up an individual theme for each floor and zone according to its usage and characteristics, accentuating with designs, material and other suited items.
