SND fashion store in Chongqing, China by 3GATTI

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: 3GATTI

When I started this retail project there was a simple and appealing idea of hanging everything from the ceiling – thus moving out of the way the furniture and items to be sold so that all the floor space could be free for customers to circulate.  So using a software that simulates the physics of real materials, we imagined an elastic ceiling that was pulled down by the weight of these various objects.  The next step was to think about the technical equipment necessary for the store such as lighting, speakers, sprinklers, cameras, AC and ventilation so it was natural to think of this ceiling as a permeable surface.  This was the origin of the ethereal white ceiling;  an ephemeral support for ephemeral objects.

Article source: HASSELL

Located to the north of Chongqing on the banks of Palm Lake and the Taiping Reservoir, the Palm Island project is a new hospitality precinct designed by HASSELL. The key element of the design is water and it has been melded with light and reflections for the project concept. When viewed from afar, the five buildings housing six different restaurants appear to float on the lake, which is the unique feature of the project by Palm Springs Real Estate Development.
