A credit union may not be the type of building you'd expect to take pleasure in, but the Shimura Branch by Emmanuelle Moureaux embodies an utterly delightful design.

The architects behind this projects have only recently completed another such location for the Sugamo Shinkin Bank of Tokyo, in which the structure shares much in common with the stark white and spectral features of this particular project. In order to convey an amiable approach to customer service, the clients have chosen to erect an establishment with a playful disposition.

The actual inspiration of the edifice comes from the image of the many-layered, mille-feuille puff pastry dessert. Flushed with a light stack of neon-colored planes, the Shimura Branch by Emmanuelle Moureaux seems to open space while it essentially encloses it.
