The site is the ruins of Tokyu Toyoko Line Shibuya Station. It is a place where it was the first station and the last station of Toyoko Line. The memories of many people are engraved with beautiful curving trajectories, homes, and views of the barrel roof.
Inheriting memories that you are familiar with on a daily basis, and taking advantage of the potential of this place to the future. To amplify the attractiveness of Shibuya's neighborhood and streets. To become familiar with office workers who will come with bicycles and sneakers.

You can feel the dynamism in the midst of various activities such as expressways, Meiji Dori, Shibuya River, JR lines, footbridges, etc. in the middle of the valley topography site, and the wind itself flowing in the middle of it .

A part of the old viaduct, which crosses the top of the Route 246 Road, is reused as it is, and the line alignment of the old Toyoko Line is followed, and the through-hole “stream line” is a half-outside open hole.

The store volume such as a street store that has broken down to the scale of Shibuya creates a gap and a terrace like an alley that feels like the brows of the wind and light, the flow of the wind and light of the city, and the people from Shibuya to Daikanyama Visualize flow lines.

From the “URBAN CORE” facing Meiji Dori, the iconic stair will be the route to exit in the Sakuragaoka-cho area in the future via the “stream line”. The stream yellow escalator was placed in the finish of the industrial and instant material feeling to visualize the three-dimensional route.

Shibuya Stream is a cozy place where people can stay, and also functions as a hub that creates people's flows in all directions of the city.
