Brick is the main material used for the design of Aesop Ginza, the second boutique of Aesop that has been placed in an existing building. Located on a street called Brick Street (Renga Do-ri) in Ginza, the exterior walls of the 35-year-oldbuildingare coveredwithbrick. A narrow frontage like the one in this building tends to be less eye-catching, but the brickwork of the exterior walls has been continued into the interior space, creating a distinct, iconic store. Brick is usually applied to a plane, such as a wall or a floor, but here we used brick in a unique way; we have used it for both the vertical and horizontal surfaces.
