Simple, modern and
elegant. These were the
cues that make the shop
a fantastic place to shop,
says O'Neill. Rough stones
and smooth wood, rough
concrete and polished
quartz, bronze metal and
supple leather combine to
lift the objects for sale to
the status of art and not just
everyday housewares. "Yet
everything is utilitarian and
useful as well as beautiful
and precious. Many Japanese
nationals come by the shop
and tell us that the store is so
'Japanese' that it makes them
miss home," he explains.
The store is set up from
the outside in to control the
customer experience. The
exterior is the only store in
the galleria that is less than
90% glass opening so that
the view in and especially
out can be controlled. "It
was important once the
customers crossed the
ceremonial wood bridge,
they would be transported
to Japan and have no other
context to take away the
illusion. We created a 'wood
flooring bridge' to enter the
store. We also created a pair
of custom wood doors at the
entry. The doors were to look
like they had been brought
over from Japan and installed
in our location. Instead they
were constructed of old
timber that the woodworker
had located and treated to
look aged," O'Neill continues.
Acacia also created "old"
bronze hardware to complete
the illusion.

OAK

Woodwork Features
According to Acacia's
Will Fuller, senior project
manager, the firm provided
flat cut Spanish Cedar
veneer and lumber for wall
and ceiling panels, Ipe
lumber for flooring, post Oak
lumber at entry doors and
frame, along with a pergola,
product displays, tables,
furniture and light fixtures.
The firm also provided
leather panels, natural
stone and quartz elements,
signage, ornamental metal
components, a custom basalt
water feature and custom
cast door hardware.
Fuller notes the entry
doors and frame were the
most challenging because the
material requirements were so
unusual. "The product needed
to present as believably aged
and older recycled material
could not be used because
the repurposed nature would
be too obvious. Ultimately,
we discovered a source of
appropriately rough lumber
that was processed about
30 years earlier and never
sold. We also found a line
of antique looking bronze
hardware that fulfilled about
40% of what was needed.
Then we worked with the same
vendor to hand cast the rest."
