Tangning Books / Leaping Greative

Reconstruct the space through architectural transformation, and enable every corner to tell the brand’s story
The project is a bookstore that occupies a pivotal position within Si Hai Cheng Plaza, Panyu District, Guangzhou. Connected to a sunken square at the front and backed by apartment buildings, it enjoys a tranquil environment in a lively neighborhood. In the post-pandemic era, its community-based location has a huge advantage. The original building was the supporting facility of a terrace racecourse. It was a two-storey structure which spanned more than 40 meters. The interior space had a low ceiling and irregular structures, making it difficult to serve commercial purposes. For this reason, Leaping Creative team worked out a series of strategies to improve the spatial pattern.

DipoMuria commercial center in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia, hosts a photo studio, restaurant, café, and retail shop and is modeled after an urban village typology. On one hand, this makes the design fit better into the low rise and small-scale residential neighborhood and on the other hand, also gives the possibility to play with the volumes and provide more experienceable sequences of in-between spaces to explore and hang out.

Showroom bulthaup Sant Cugat / Francesc Rifé Studio

September 5, 2021 Andreas Luco 0

With the feeling of opening a chapter in the history of the German kitchen brand, softness, details, and warmth mark the new image of bulthaup Sant Cugat. Its new interior, more intimate and personal, is the result of the collaboration between the designer Francesc Rifé and the showroom’s owner and designer, Caterina Masferrer. “The idea behind the new design is to evoke family warmth and take the project towards a more domestic concept,” they explain. More like a home than a business, more private than exposed, closer than impersonal. To achieve this, serene materials and a warm chromaticism have been selected rooted in the identity of bulthaup. The natural or stained oak in different tones is balanced with the concrete floors, while the neutrality of the walls and concrete ceilings shape most of the space.
