Project Brief

The curve-shaped grey stone background wall presents a fluidic and dynamic form.
The mirrored ceiling with water wave patterns is the visual focus in the sand table area. Reflected on the sand table, those lovely spots form a magnificent yet exquisite picture, which is a metaphor of sea scene that is connected by ShenZhen-ZhongShan Bridge. The negotiation area is full of rhythm by adopting a streamlined and majestic array of point lights and utilizing arc structures and straight lines properly. It feels like the amazing youth and the fast-paced urban life with passion and dream mingled as well.
The exquisite furniture and artworks of the contract area soften the whole space. The combination of dark red and creamy-white and the blending of toughness and elegance present a practical, efficient and comfortable environment.
The simple yet fashionable design of bathroom still uses arc shapes, creating a lively space with a sense of ritual.

Project Innovation/Need

The 3D printing technology is used to prefabricate the model of the special-shaped reception platform and guide the on-site construction. The designers had lined futuristic light and shadow and the display technology with shapes of walls, which would lead to deeper awareness and the future imagination of the development of the city and the times.

Design Challenge

Firstly, the first challenge is the planning of various functional areas. It is necessary to overcome many architectural conflicts and space limitation, in order to transform multiple shops into a whole sales space and improve functions of the sales space.
Secondly, it is essential to distinguish the project from traditional sales spaces. The designers aimed to create a design style that gets closer to preference of young consumers and to better understand their hobbies and concerns. Therefore, the space can show vigorous yet rational characteristics of modern youth.

Sustainability

1. The innovative practices of stainless steel plate, special glass, prefabricated terrazzo and other materials lead to an interaction with manufacturers, which improves the industrial production chain.
2. Most of materials are selected from the vicinity, which are stable resources and convenient to get.
