背景 | BACKGROUND
Between the East Fourth Ring Road and the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing, there is a diamond shaped area separated by several twisted rails. When Beijing is experiencing rapid expansion, this “enclave” less than 5 kilometers away from CBD is hidden in the decaying industrial buildings, and has gradually becomes a corner forgotten by urban civilization.

The exterior of the building is surrounded by a special customized rust red weathering resistant steel plate skin. Through the special “sense of friction” between the material and the field, a tension is created. The rough and crisscross red brick walls echo the historical characteristics of the site, and the well arranged glass windows and revolving doors show the “protagonist” Shufan furniture in the space container to the public.

The overall layout of the first floor is bold and unique. The space division of triangles and irregular polygons on the plane, the special structure treatment method, and the uniform rust red color of careful consideration by the designers. The space takes into account both privacy and publicity, and the functional layout simulates the family layout, which meets the needs of furniture exhibition.

Between the stairs and the arc-shaped steps, there is a ladder shaped low wall, which divides the traffic space and the main space, The low wall, the stairs, the platform form 3 different ladders, which indicates the height conversion of the space. The round hole on the wall not only echoes the arc elements of the design, but also can be served as a practical furniture showcase, breaking the dullness of the wall.
