TIPS Fashion Store in Shanghai, China by ///byn

 
November 22nd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ///byn

TIPS Fashion Store is located on the ground floor of an old French Mansion in the heart of the former French Concession of Shanghai.

The preexistence of the historic residential environment drove the design. The house is protected as well as all the existing details inside. The Store is located in the former dining and living room of the house, which kept the original woodworks, moldings, fire places, wood beams… Our design had to be a contemporary contrast within that classical ambience, respecting the existing but drastically changing the appearance of the site.

The store is a multi-brand store and we needed to give a designated space for each designer’s garments. We decided to create a series of freestanding bodies that will hold the entire new program. They are composed by a series of pods that hold the hanging units and the storage and a long desk for display and point of sale.

All the new pods were produced in a factory from our 3d model and moved into the site, where they were installed in just 2 days minimizing the onsite work time. They are made in a folded 2.5mm metal plate and baked paint. The geometry of the pods and the connections between them drastically transformed the space enhancing some of the old details and covering others. The air conditioning, sound system and ambient lighting are hidden behind the pods.

OFFICE DESCRIPTION:

///byn was founded in 2001 in Barcelona by the architects Bittor SANCHEZ-MONASTERIO and Nicolas SALTO DEL GIORGIO.

///byn is an investigative architectural office, where the interest in new conceptual research, academics, and technology based design, is applied to projects of every scale, including master plan, urban design, architecture or interior design.

///byn was understood from the beginning as a nomadic platform that should be flexible enough to travel around the globe, while Bittor & Nicolas were still collaborating with world renowned architects. From 2004 to 2008, the practice moved to New York, and in May 2008 it moved to its current base in Shanghai. Since May 2009 ///byn is a full time working office.

Our current location in China is not arbitrary. We are trying to find the highest intensity points on earth, where new trends are happening and there is a global dynamism. China offered us the opportunity to really establish the company, and be able to explore our thoughts on architecture and design. In the following year we are planning to expand the office with a new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in our continuous search of the new poles.
