_TOKYO HIPSTERS CLUB   Tokyo, Japan Flagship Store | 1,000 sq m Completed – 2006   With Tom Dixon   The neighbourhood of Omotesando in Tokyo, Japan, is one of the most recognized high-end retail destinations in the world. Tokyo Hipsters Club, a private fashion label, commissioned the British designer Tom Dixon to design and build its new flagship store. Marco Ortiz was invited to lead the architectural design of the project by Tom Dixon. This modest scale project, inspired the Beatnik movement of the 1950’s and 60s, seeks to provoke a reaction against stereotypes of aesthetic, hierarchy and tradition. The project is a concrete block and steel, which contains extensive open spaces, which are carefully articulated, accommodating trendy shop stands, music rooms and artistic performance areas.
