我们的业主To My Dearest·親親是一家法式甜品店，他们想通过这家新店的甜品及空间设计来展现甜品的美好在日常生活中传递的仪式感。在《小王子》中有这样一段关于仪式感的文字–“它使某一天与其他日子不同，使某一时刻与其他时刻不同”我们希望这个甜品空间也可以具有仪式感，使其与其他空间不同。
Our client To My Dearest is a patisserie, the original intention is to utilize their products and space design of this new patisserie to realize the sense of ritual conveyed by the dessert in the daily life. In “Little Prince” there is such a paragraph about the sense of ritual –“They are what make one day different from other days, one hour from other hours. ” We hope that this dessert space can also have a sense of ritual, making it different from other spaces.
Located in the “Joy Yard” area on the fifth floor of Chaoyang Joy City, the project is surrounded by water and plants in the common area, which makes it be more like a small island. Joy Yard is a theme block elaborately built by Chaoyang Joy City, constructed according to a concept of the style of European towns. The property requires our design to maintain transparency in the whole space, in other words, any solid facade to the edge is not allowed, which leads to the most tremendous problem that is to figure out a way to ensure the uniqueness of the design and the independence of the space, meanwhile, to perfectly harmonize with the strong and figurative European atmosphere.
In the end, after several rounds of negotiation, we took ‘wedding’ as the main concept of scene; Surround the entire ‘small island’ with white plastic-coated steel wires, giving the entire space an ambiguous atmosphere like translucent white gauze. Blurred the boundaries between the interior and the exterior. Moreover, in account of the different curve shapes of the upper and lower fixed points of the line, these white lines constitute an organic form. As a result, when walking around the space, people can see various effects at different perspectives. Speaking of the corridor-shaped dining space behind the kitchen, we created the effect of the arcade by rope art. Since the arcade is made up of white straight wires, it avoids the overly figurative expression of the church corridor and presents a modern artistic sense.
The chandelier in the middle of the space is also an important element that enhances the sense of ritual in the entire space, referring to the chandeliers in the traditional church. Instead of adopting the European flamboyant decoration and traditional materials, the designers finally chose to use only bulbs to restore the chandelier space formation, which not only strengthens the sense of ritual, but also makes the space more eye-catching.
In terms of the ground and kitchen fa?ade washed stone, a material generally uses in outdoor space, is applied. For example, the original European white bridge above the water is also replaced by three cobblestone-shaped washed-stone steps, which echoes the outdoor feeling that Joy Yard expecting to create, while increasing the relaxing atmosphere of the space.
