Winner in Interior Design - Renovation
Edoardo Nieri, Weijing He, Danyi Zhang, Ning Wang, Hardy Huang
Situated in the heart of Shanghai city, the three-story old factory that we was commissioned to renovate presents itself as a historical ruin where the raw structure was truly exposed in all its magnificent. Conscious of this beauty, we developed its own approach that enhances the peculiar characteristics of the building by creating a contrast between the old and new finish materials for this new fashion and art hub that is going to break the rules of the retail experience. We keep all the differences of the space and show the history of the building so that people walking in could feel that the boundaries between the past and the present are completely blurred, as if they had walked into a timeless space.
