Bright, open and cheerful, the design of the Ekoda Sugamo Shinkin Bank encapsulates the service of the branch beautifully. More than that, it inspires the feelings customers will want to walk out with after visiting the site to do their financial chores. The bank's motto is, "we take pleasure in serving happy customers," after all.

Taking this to heart, designer Emmanelle Moureaux installed a series of colourful 9 metre-tall sticks both inside and outside of the Ekoda Sugamo Shinkin Bank to add a sense of playfulness to the area. These sticks reflect beautifully on the massive floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a shadowy rainbow effect that still lets a lot of natural light in. Complete with equally colorful chairs, the space will make anyone happy.
