The new space of MR.MAIMAi bakery is located on the second floor of an office building in Hangzhou, accessible via an outdoor escalator. The bakery provides white-collar office workers with a place to enjoy bread and coffee on a busy work day. Taking a break can be seen as entering a tranquil state.

In this originally square space of 60 m2, we intend to apply dynamic and rolling curves that divide the space into several functional sections.
▼店内一览，主要材料为大理石和黄铜，曲线划分空间，通风口用黄铜包裹，overall view of the interior mainly composed of marble and brass, with curves dividing the space. The air outlets are also with brass cladding

The curve design is used in the seating area and aisle space. Without interfering with the flow of customers, dynamic lines are incorporated into the space high up on the ceiling or to the side, in the shape of 1/4 arcs, made from brass or marble. Here we use marble to form the dynamic lines. The curved surface area demonstrates a cascade of sequenced elements that makes the whole space dynamic yet static. Brass handrails are used to separate the order section from the seating area. Customers may take a seat at the brass table and chair representing a vintage industrial style, or on the brass park bench, where they can take in all the nice views while enjoying a moment of tranquility and exquisiteness.

The bottom edge of the dynamic marble design arc incorporates a brass structure that outlines the design and echoes its dynamic aspect with the brass trash can and tissue box on the marble counter. Behind the counter stands a flat block which also adopts moving lines to achieve a dynamic environment.

For materials, we have followed the common combination of marble and brass as well as dark stone materials. The ceiling is largely covered by brass, so is the air conditioner outlet. Inside the bakery, there is one whole wall and one wall of 1.3m high that are made of dark stone materials. The rest remains original with aluminum framed windows.

Dynamic blocks fill the space with exquisiteness and elegance, while leaving many interesting details to explore.
