This is a set of commercial tenant building in Daikanyama, Tokyo. From legal condition it was demanded to build several small volumes in narrow site, and we decided to make several volumes that seemed to be mountains.

Thereby valley-shaped space between mountains is formed, where people and displayed things will overflow. Each shop can enlarge itself on the mountain-shaped volumes.
