At beginning of 2011, Kokaistudios was invited by one of the leading developers in China, OCT Shanghai Land, to lead a thorough restoration and renovation project of a historically significant warehouse on the North side of Suzhou Creek in Shanghai. The warehouse; the early 20th Century Ewo Packing Factory warehouse building; is the first building to open in the new large scale OCT urban re-development project SUHE CREEK designed by Foster+Partners and where the 4th Bvlgari Hotel will be located. The building now serves initially as the Project Showroom, Sales Center and VIP Reception Venue as well as housing the studios for two of China’s most prominent contemporary artists, Yan Peiming and Liu Xiaodong. It will be part of the riverside commercial space where international brands will be located in the future.

The first Tokyo branch of Global Style, a made-to-order suit shop, has opened in Kanda, the textile quarter of eastern Tokyo. Kanda is home to a number of pharmaceutical and trading companies and it was assumed that the main customer target would be businessmen passing the shop. As it is also within walking distance from Akihabara, it was considered that people who normally don’t have much to do with suits would also pass by.

The purpose was to reconnect with the identity of Roger Vivier’s house in order to accompany the renewal of the brand that created, among other things, the stiletto heel in 1954.
The work was led in close relationship with Inès de la Fressange, director of the brand and Bruno Frisoni, artistic director. We aimed to give each room the prestige of Roger Vivier’s history and a contemporary design vision. Based on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré Street, the store spreads on 3 levels in a sweet and luminous atmosphere. Outside, the screen shop-window made of “priva light” let the ground floor appear through the frames of various windows.

A dream commission that required an equally unique response. Housed in a corner site in Melbourne’s QV centre, a highly visible high traffic area it was essential that the fitout provided a visual feast for the passing pedestrian, a dynamic and constantly evolving space. Internally the need was to create another world, a sensory delight.

‘Colorfoto’ grew and needed a Megastore.
We tried to organize the space in a large and clean way, attempting to highlight the ampleness of the store despite the various happenings. The pavement and the ceiling, in white, contrast with the set of cabinets that cover the walls, designed in a way to serve as storage and display.

The brand new showroom for Belgian lingerie firm “Van De Velde” opened its doors in March 2010 at the high pedestrian traffic intersection between Madison Avenue and 33rd Street, on the first floor of a historic building, in New York.
The typical “Manhattan” open space needed to be divided into four different areas. The entrance, a closed office for one person – that could also be used as a meeting room – two work islands and a showroom area.
