Ziyang street is one of the most famous commercial street and zone called by Linhai people and their properties are most of historical look square stone path built where padestrian easily access all the store and cafes easily. Also, There are still notable shops those are old approx 200 years of something.
However, in terms of its severe narrowness for traffic and the pre-modern and seemingly boring style of the ancient buildings, this old street, surrounded by and in contrast to the flashy and bright modern city, has been increasingly unattractive, declining and even weird in the eyes of the public.
“Wave” is one of the modern and young generation symbole at Old city of linhai for this reason LYCS architect design team put the element abstract wave in the old house and transform to store. Architecture design combination of art scene and modern design which can expressed a marvelously intrepid and free attitude of the contemporary young riding the wave and for this reason there are full of space access with fun inside store.
Architect wave based design can save the echoes the real surging tide in the Lingjiang River outside Linhai city, Architect design can store which can saved from the river flood that can almost control flood and put flood-control function can astonishingly survive and even be well preserved in the densely populated area after a thousand years back.
“Wave” design concept can express the modern retail building and also gives maximizing space because of heavy rent small space big use types of use here and wave based design similar like that which can saved lots of spaces inside the store.
LYCS Arechitecture team has used the element of wave to blur the frozen boundaries of walls, floors, stairs, floors and roofs, break down the conventional concept of layers, and reconstruct the given spatial system.
Wave design concept is complete transforming complete shopping where visitor can feel they can doing surfing mind over huge waves something. It is also relaxing visitor mind.
Previously unethical walls and pills which not in use anymore those all can destroy and Designer team used white curves in interior likes surface to ceiling floor using white curves even at stairs too also bypass wooden beam and columns.
This white waves can hidden Air conditioner pipelines, Wires and other rough structure and gives pure and clean surface which can give brightness in stores.
This cascade design and edge curved design surface is gives weekend vibes and increase the sense of purchasing as well. The linear lights illuminate the huge wave and the wood pillars, perfectly forming a strong visual collision. As the new seems more dazzling and the old more meaningful, this visual effect turns to be more refreshing as if a dreamy spatio-temporal collision has happened.
Wave design is go from ground to top to chosen the durable terrazzo to constitute a closed loop after numerous experiments with the various kinds of metals and paints. The white element naturally divides the retail store into eight different exhibition areas, each of which highlights its unique feature perfectly.
In terms of the exhibition design of these eight areas, the team has carried out an integrated design based on the concept of Wave. By adopting the metal and the wood veneering materials, LYCS team, in order to meet the unique needs of the retail store for holding a wide variety of goods and achieving seasonal renewal, has created lots of significant variable components such as the diaphragms that can be adjusted up and down, the brackets that can be freely arranged and the flexible and mobile cavern boards.
Stepping from the first floor to the second floor, the spatial experience will be changed accordingly from walking under the wave to riding the wave. The design team has already ably set up a perfect place for visitors to take photos at the transition point of space, which leads the streamline naturally up to the cozy teahouse on the second floor.
Decidedly replacing all the doors and windows along the street with the large floor-to-ceiling ones and the black stainless steel frames, the design team has remarkably made the originally dark and narrow space become bright and transparent, and contributed to the huge “wave” pouring out from the second floor, as if infusing a modern vital pneuma into the old street. The whole design has already resulted in its significant distinction from other stores.
Jiangnan Zan store is now open for business. By virtue of exploring the historical stories of Ziyang Street, its operation team has designed and developed two product series “Qi Kai De Sheng” and “Zi Yang Zhen Ren”, contributing to the retrieval and re-spread of the reputation of the national hero Qi Jiguang of Ming Dynasty and the great Daoist Zi Yang Zhen Ren of Song Dynasty in this historic city.
In addition, as the new rising “wave” of the old city, Jiangnan Zan designed by LYCS Architecture plays the key role of the new booster and “microphone” of the new cultural and creative industries, taking the young back and bringing new vigor to Ziyang old street.
