The Tiffany & Co. Ginza flagship store in Tokyo, Japan, designed by architect Kengo Kuma has just received a makeover by painter and conceptual artist Damien Hirst.

Hirst’s touch on the building comes in celebration of the flagship’s reopening following some recent interior renovations. The work features floral-inspired elements that give a sense of new life as the eye travels up from the blue backdrop at the base to trees in full bloom.

The 6,243 sq ft building has an exterior made up of 292 aluminum honeycomb and glass panels, each of which the art was applied to individually. As a result, the facade is decorated with pastel pink, white, green and red flower petals, that passersby can’t help but stop and admire. Hirst’s work is also found in parts of the interior, though in more of a complimentary manner to the re-imagined spaces.

See Hirst’s full work and a behind-the-scenes look at the application process in the video from Tiffany & Co. below.
