The project is located in Shangmeilin Community, Futian, with a lively street on one side and residential buildings with a sense of time on the other. With the upgrading and rectification of the streets, the owners have the idea of renovating the shops. It aims to provide everyone with more space and time to sit down and chat together, and feel the ideal place for life together.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
In the original interior space, the shop is too independent from the street, and only one window is kept facing the street, which makes the lighting in the shop poor and the circulation is poor. Because the interior is relatively closed and there are fewer windows, the display of the shop on the street is relatively weak. In a small space, different height differences are set, and a mezzanine is added at the center position, which will have a strong sense of oppression. This project hopes to activate the vitality of the entire community by reshaping the interior space and create an artistic image coffee shop to provide people with a place to relax and socialize.

Through the transformation of the wall, more display areas will be opened and the store's visibility will be improved. Foldable windows are installed, which can be connected in series with the street, introducing more natural light and enhancing the interaction between the interior and the street. Reduce the height difference on the ground and leave a more complete space for regular theme photography exchange meetings. The space on the second floor is integrated from the original two parts, which makes the space more comfortable and maintains a certain degree of privacy.
Creative Process & Result
Repeatedly explore the site, understand the needs of the owners, but also give certain reservations and enlargements to the preferences of the customers. We found that there are many customers who like to rest by the window facing the street, so in the design process, we decided to use foldable windows, which can combine indoor and outdoor spaces to create, and use the window sill as a place for drinks The platform enhances interactivity and visibility. Through interesting decorations and digital screens, create a warm and relaxing environment.

After the renovation, the coffee shop became a brighter display spot in the street, and it was also defined as an artistic business card in the block. More residents like to chat and relax here. At the same time, the open and circulating space turns the store into a stage, which can be radiated by its enthusiasm, whether indoors or in the block, which stimulates the vitality of the block space and has a positive impact on people's lifestyle.

How does the project reflect to the exhibition theme "Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design"
The overall design of the project has a warm tone and a strong humanistic atmosphere. The design of the horizontal bar on the street side blurs the boundaries between the inside and outside of the space, and provides a platform for people to communicate with each other. Whether sitting indoors or by the window, you can interact with the surrounding environment while sipping coffee. At the same time, the interior adopts a low-limit and high-flexibility spatial layout, which reflects the high tolerance of the space, provides a good art and social interaction place for community residents and visitors, and brings new vitality to the neighborhood. Become an artistic business card in the block, and use the shop as a point to radiate to the entire block.
