A-COLD-WALL* Concept Store, Shanghai
S-L2-13d, No. 500 Dongyu Road, Pudong New Area, Shanghai, China
A key door for the region, the Shanghai store marks a continuation of a developing programme of store launches and events that service the global A-COLD-WALL* community. Informed by a system-based design, the store’s architecture and configured circulation is guided by key principles of modularity.
The store plan explores a balance between horizontal and vertical frameworks, anchored by a central sculpture that contributes a unique interval of observation within the space. This monolithic verticality, sculpted from charred wood, introduces an organic element to the store’s industrial build, a contrast against both the tone and form used throughout.
