The Sugamo Shinkin Bank is not your usual bank, especially not after Emmanuelle Moureaux waved her creative wand over the location. Moreaux has designed several projects for Sugamo Shinkin in Japan and this edition is the most enlightening yet. Bursting with colour, the architect has brightened the area using a myriad of pastel hues integrated into a geometric wonder.

The colour palette was specifically selected to "make customers feel happy", a testament to the Nakaaoki bank's motto: "We take pleasure in serving happy customers." Take a look at the new, happy Japanese bank below:
