we talked about retailer 1ldk's newest retail space in sapporo in a previous post, but that was when it wasn't fully operational yet. as said, the 1ldk terrace store is perched on the third floor of stellar place, a large mixed-used complex in the heart of town, and comprises of a retail section and a café section. the shop, marked by a façade of grey veranda doors, features a simple and functional interior with wooden shelving and displays, and it's very similar to what you'd find at 1ldk's other stores in japan. so, what's in stock? 1ldk terrace carries a curated selection of goods, both from home and abroad, and includes men's and women's apparel items, shoes and homeware.
right next door in a separate space, the café can be found, and interiorwise, it's a seamless extension of the shop. simple timber furnishings are framed by pristine white walls and matching varnished wooden planking. sets of light bulbs dangle on long chords from the ceiling, and lush plants add a homey touch to the setting. the café's menu is based on the use of spices, herbs and also botanical ingredients, and as such, bites are light and healthy, including spring vegetable salad, seasonal soups, but also chicken curry and artisanal french fries. location: stellar place, 5-2 kita gojonishi, third floor [central sapporo].
