In the context of fierce competition in the industry, improving the business image has become an urgent need for owners. The architectural form of this case is a row building. Each merchant has two independent facades about 6 meters wide and 10 meters high in the north and south, and the East and west sides are connected with other merchants. The design not only needs to achieve the purpose of highlighting visual recognition in many shops, but also needs to improve and optimize the internal space.

立面设计 | Facade design
Facing the 10 meter high door head, how to make rational use of the volume and shape the beauty of facade proportion is the direction we need to consider. The scheme adopts the processing method of simplifying the main body and enriching the details, uses a 1 / 3 visual scale to divide the facade center, and combs the facade scale relationship again. The strip-shaped block protruding from the upper left of the south facade points to the logo, which focuses on the visual center of the facade and metaphors the positive concept of upward. The retractable window opening on the right can meet the ventilation needs of the warehouse on the second floor, and the oblique cutting structure and red brown paint give the viewer sufficient imagination space.

Instead of adopting the original double door corridor structure, the south entrance is designed with an inward contraction buffer zone. The entrance is opened to the East, which implicitly and restrained guides the entrance, improves the mystery of the internal space and people’s desire for exploration, and the west is used as a display window. The glass brick of the North facade also takes care of the lighting demand of the second floor, and the lighting windows on both sides of the entrance adopt the design of one-level retraction, which enriches the composition relationship of the facade through this drop.

室内设计 | Interior design
The interior is a long and narrow space of 6x20m. Fabric display, bedding display, reception area, negotiation area and other functions shall be met. We still retain the design of the channel in the middle and divide the layout logic of the upper and lower functional half areas. However, compared with the original layout, the dynamic line of the new functional division is clearer and greatly improves the space utilization and space experience.
