‘t Japanse Winkeltje (in English: little Japanese shop) in Amsterdam is a gallery space, shop and Japanese culture centre housed on three separate floors. Amsterdam based NEZU AYMO Architects have provided this shop with a total makeover, creating a playful interior with tactile qualities, surprising use of materials and a subtle sense of japaneseness.
The interior walls and ceilings on all floors are covered in natural materials. One side of the shop features undulating fabric shelves and on the other side loops of white mesh made of paper yarn soaked in rice water surround the wooden shelves.
Address: Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 177, Amsterdam
