大繁至简 · 返璞归真
I always believe that vintage is a status, just like the reunite after a long separation.
After the passage of time, the quiet and introspective beauty of the sedimentation. The remaining is the softness and calmness impregnated by the years.
I think it looks like a dojo of life belonging to the two sisters Di and Jia, an attitude of their interpretation of Chinese antiquity and lifestyle. Quiet, old, a small maverick store without a sense of distance. And the imprint it presents foreshadows the character of life it allows to grow naturally.
The floor area is more than 200m², as a vintage store is not compact. Combined with the high building height, it can even be regarded as space-rich. However, since the “C” shape building structure and the space limitation caused by the two large columns in the center, make the originally spacious physical space appear as if it were separated into independent small squares. If the design is developed according to the existing building structure settings, the experience of space would be significantly reduced.
As well, as a street shop, limited by the unique topographical features of mountain cities. The original building space relationship and outdoor ramp form two completely different spatial relationships. The building on the right facing the door head is higher than the street, while the left side is far below the finished surface of the street.
Overall, we not only need to build a store for selling productions, but also a space on the premise of ensuring basic demands, it takes more to satisfy the personalized commercial expressions, these would be closely related to the state of the manager, but not just an expression of her personal preference, at the same time, it is necessary to satisfy their consideration in real use.
Consequently, we obey the practical needs of the space, split it into five major parts.
First of all, according to the terrain factors, we divide the door head into two spaces and partial ground elevated by the civil engineering treatment.
After entering the main area, we apply the method of raise the platform, and the enclosed comprehensive service space formed by combining the columns, divide the inside main exhibition area into two major parts.
Walking further inside is the spiritual field that we can build. The story height relationship that could have been built as a two-story space has been preserved. Here, tall structural columns and luggage display walls have become the main body of vision. The low-lying seating area is in sharp contrast with it.
Because of the relatively narrow deep building structure relationship, we build the double-layer space by using the end of the architecture. This is not only a design method to create space mood better.
On the texture expression, as always, I prefer the most basic material relationship. Log, washed stone, paint and red brick have once again become the key to space. No doubt, it is the purest expression formation. But in Dijia’s value output aspect, we hope to have more traditional cognitive feelings than previous similar works. So, in the overall design, we incorporate moderate stone, short pile, mosaic, metal, and other materials.
