BLANK is located in Shanghai Xintiandi and is a Z – shaped two-story shop along the street. It is a comprehensive space dominated by clothing retailing, displaying the works of independent designers around the world. at the same time, it has the functions of bar, dining, party, exhibition, show, music performance and so on. Blank has upper and lower floors, and the space on the second floor is divided by a ping mall channel. The original staircase and kitchen position on the first floor of the blank shop cannot be changed. How to realize the visual form of flowing diffusion in this space, involving various specific functions, has become the challenge of this project.
1 Floor:There is no window on the facade of the door. The interior of the whole glass facade is directly screened by a huge half-moon stripe block. The 2 – meter – high block penetrates and expands the space. An arc staircase extending to the same block connects the upper and lower floors. In the middle of the first floor is a terrazzo long table, which has two functions of dining and clothing display. The poured yellow glass block is inlaid, and the yellow glass is integrally formed, such as gem inlaid，the table is divided by time. It is usually a display table and serves as a bar or table at parties. Bar water bar across half space, composed of terrazzo bar and copper bar, brass breaks the dull black color; Like a part of an emissary’s armor.

2 Floor:As the ribbon-shaped circular staircase is pushed upwards, the curve moves to the second floor, the circular armrest edge, and then there is a diffusion – arc-shaped striped block screen, and parts of the arc-shaped block are displayed with ornaments; The steps under the arc shape are also strip – shaped, and some of them are also displayed above. What continues to spread is the galvanized corrugated board partition, which does not allow the passage to directly see through the entire space on the second floor.

Opposite the passage is the storeroom and VIP fitting room. the facade is formed by curved window. The glass surface of the window and the galvanized corrugated board form a common channel, or passageway, to maintain separation and information connection. The whole space is made up of strip-shaped body blocks, interspersed, circled, pulled up, and spread. this movement mode is definitely stationary at the end on the basis of function.
