Rainbow Girl

Architecture & Interiors

“We take pleasure in serving happy customers,” is the motto of Sugamo Shinkin Bank inTokyo—and pity the customers who can’t manage a smile with this confection of colors welcoming them. The French-born architect Emmanuelle Moureaux, commissioned to build a new branch for the bank, answered with a building distinguished by a stack of rainbow-colored platforms that jut out exuberantly at the entrance, and turn ethereal when illuminated at night. The liberal color palette extends into the interior design as well, in service of Moureaux’s mission of creating “a refreshing atmosphere” for “first-rate hospitality.” Mission accomplished, we’d say.

    I so love the colors for the roof. It’s my stress reliever and it never fails to make me smile.
