SAKO is a famous architect from Japan, most of their projects are amazing, one of their projects is this modern fashion boutique interior of ROMANTICISM and ROMANTICISM2 in Hangzhou. China. Japanese architects Keiichiro Sako and Takeshi Ishizaka of SAKO Architects, designed a few locations for the brand in the city of Hangzhou. This boutique is located in the neighborhood of Xihu lake, close to the center of Hangzhou. “Romanticism” is a fashion brand that holding almost 500 of boutique. Sako’s Client is aiming at image changing into elegance through the decoration design for their shop. SAKO regards new-born of the brand as the initial meaning of Egg’s ? born, future and develop.
Egg was used as 2 means. One is making motif getting the hugest like pumpkin carriage, and another one is countless like stars or spangles in the sky. The huge egg that standing in the middle of shop is separated into 2 parts. The slope section that is facing the entrance is not only an image of egg itself, but also able to display garments on it. Meanwhile stepping around the huge egg, customer could see all of the commodities once a time.
Clothes are the second skin, space a third skin, and these boutique interior design is positioned in between the clothes and space. It’s like a piece of furniture that you can hang clothes on and it changes its shape into partition, counter, chair, furniture as well as railing.
Logo is very important element to a shop. Countless inter-light type eggs draw attention of people, and we could also put logos on those eggs.
Every egg is not only impact existing, but also help to make important elements of the shop like logos as well as garments stand out. And we have reached an agreement, in the future, similar area chin will be re-decorating based on the design of this shop. Another thing I think it over on Romanticism Hangzhou shop is that “design motif” and “commodity, logo”.
With a little difference, the Romaticism2 is decorated with some organic net that’s going through the whole space, Just like being absorbed from the facade into inner room and then changing the shape smoothly till 1F, wrapping the floor up. Close one side at stairs, the same net goes to basement, and made out various parts as it did at 1F in strong form.The net change its shape into partition, counter, chair, furniture as well as railing. Act as the third skin, net comprise of bone, flesh as well as skin. Bone is ordinary reinforcing steel, flesh is form insulation and glass fiber, and skin is epoxy resin as well as oil paint. Some display holes were made in three-dimensional white wall. It is enlarged motif of body and clothes.
Mirror-finished stainless was used in the ceiling of 1F. This is for vision impact, illumination and overcoming of the low ceiling. Objects reflected from curved stainless look like those in the water. In other words, water should be below us in usual go up over us, then a fantastic view show up.
