Urban Retreat by Lukstudio
Recently designed by Lukstudio, this creative showroom is located in Shanghai, China.
The retail site is on the ground floor of building no. 21 which is tucked away from the main street. Lukstudio sees the original shortcoming as an opportunity to create an architectural promenade. Adding a verandah structure surrounding a minimal front yard, the new storefront gives a serene first impression. The additional envelop is comprised of concrete panels with wood grain imprint and wooden slats; while the former encloses, the latter reveals. When one passes through the entrance, movement activates the see-through structure and performs a visual rhythm.
