New and old
The new shop is built within a building from the 80 ‘s, the city only allowed minor remold the appearance of the building because of the restrictions on the construction of the original building.However, based on the commercial considerations to the client subject, we have remolding towards inside of the window, and create a space between building façade and entrance . that we pushed back 3 meters from the original entry point to create a two-story structured “Canyon”
We searched for the abandoned or discarded material, a red clay brick, in the 60-80-year period surrounding the construction area. And modernized the material by building a three-dimensional distinctive canyon. From 10:00am in morning to 4-6:00pm in afternoon, the sunlight will be passing through.The traditional rectangular window of the original building is projected into the canyon, the curved canyon side wall delicately penetrates route of light, while the window of the interior wall uses a more contemporary way of segmentation, which leads the light route into store.
Inherit and Contradict
Today, our city faces a large number of old building renovation, which, in addition to being a architectural subject, but also brings interesting impacts in business. We hope that the energy generated by this collision itself attracts consumers to more rationally observe the new and old.But also understand the inheritance and contradictions. In fact, the canyon is almost a new landmark for the young people, who enjoy being here express themselves through photography.
Fashion and abandoned
In the canyon, we created a 10-metre-high lumination fixture that draws people’s attention to the commercial space on the second floor. The luminated end strongly emphasize the installation we have for this project: The abandoned.We collected some products from store are processed with a mixture of cement and acrylic. Soft fresh products were motley covered and hardened the became a different context, in fact, apart from the view of the “abandoned”, it also indicates to ‘ time ‘.This is a successful commercial attempt at the integration of our architecture concept and fine arts.
