序PREFACE

經營了四載半,《空間》由月刊轉至季刊,內容更集中,務求提高 參考 。改革後,每期會設有一個特定的主題,從今期的商店,下期 的辦公室,以至及後的酒店、會所、餐館酒吧、文娛空間等等專輯 裡,《空間》會為大家搜羅本地及外國出色的室內設計項目。 雖然轉型了的《空間》以室內設計為大方向,但遇到傑出的建築設 計項目,還是按捺不住要向大家介紹,打響頭炮的就有由瑞士建築 設計大師Herzog & de Meuron操刀的東 Prada Epicenter旗艦店。 其實,建築是由許多個室內空間所組成,兩者有著密切的關係。室 內空間的安排和分佈取決於人們的行為模式,而這種邏輯運用於店 舖的設計上就更具主導 。從店面的設計為起點,公司品牌的商標要 掛在哪裡?哪些產品要先讓顧客看到?甚麼樣的陳列架最合適?試 身室、諮詢台、付款處應該設在甚麼位置?整個 物路線要如何鋪 排最為流暢?本輯收錄了廿多個本港和外地的商店及陳列室設計項 目,也許能為你揭示當中的一些竅門,甚至提供一點點靈感或實用 的資訊。期望你在翻閱這本書時,能享受一趟賞心悅目的視覺 物之 旅。 空間,並不是無限無盡的(那是宇宙),總得有些東西包圍著它, 人們才覺得有安全感;本書亦一樣,它的 面和 底界定了一個讓編 輯和讀者們都感安心的空間。然而,當處於一個可安身的地方之 時,人又總想出去闖蕩,正是一顆要往外馳騁的心驅使《空間》在 規限中探求突破的可能 ,在 面與 底以外發掘新的空間。 最後,請容許我在這裡衷心多謝Frnk, Yan, Jen, Nic, Karen, Yuki, Ok, Allan, Blondie, Laura, Giggs, Emily, Hung及Jerry。


After running for over four years, SPACE is transformed from a monthly magazine to a quarterly to provide a more profound and extensive coverage. The revamped SPACE will feature in every issue one specific theme. With themes ranging over retail - as in this issue, office - as in the next, as well as hotel, clubhouse, F & B and leisure space, SPACE aims to be a showcase of outstanding interior designs from both Hong Kong and overseas. Although interior design is the direction the new SPACE follows, our standing faith for architecture will not allow us to miss any remarkable architectural projects. Let us start in this issue with Prada's Epicenter store in Tokyo designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the renowned Swiss masters. Architecture is, in a sense, composed of interior spaces. The layout of the later is very much decided by our behaviours in, and our uses of them. This rationale is even more dominant in the design of shops. Starting right from the shop front: Where should the brand logo be placed? What are the products we want customer see first? What kinds of display racks are most suitable? Where should the fitting room, information desk and cashier counter be? And how about the whole shopping route? SPACE, in this issue, features more than twenty local and oversea retail and showroom designs. The techniques applied in them will provide you with not only design inspiration, but useful information as well. We hope that you will find it a rich and delightful visual shopping journey as you turn the colourful pages. Space is not boundless. (The boundless is the Universe.) Without the presence of boundary, we find it hard to experience the dimension of a space; we feel more secure being embraced. It is human nature, however, the desire to breakthrough boundaries, to explore the outside world. That is why we are going beyond the preset framework of this book, to hunt for new possibilities, new dimensions. Last but not least, I would like to express my gratitude to Frnk, Yan, Jen, Nic, Karen, Yuki, Ok, Allan, Blondie, Laura, Giggs, Emily, Hung and Jerry.

新店樓高六層,獨特的外形是由數以百計 的菱形玻璃框格幕牆所組成,既能透視店 內陳列的服飾,亦可欣賞店外景緻。晚上 的大樓像一顆亮麗剔透的水晶。 The Tokyo Store has six storeys with a remarkable appearance. Its facade is comprised of a diamond-shaped grid filled with hundreds of glass panels, offering unique views inwards of the products on display, and outwards across the city. The sculptural form and transparency made this Epicenter a landmark building. It looks like a crystal at night.

自1999年起,PRADA展開了Epicenter旗艦店計劃,目的是締造 嶄新的購物概念。建築大師為旗 艦店設計出創意滿盈的購物環境, 不但可容納更多種類的商品,店內 設計亦各有特色,讓顧客體驗全新 的購物樂趣。

新店樓高六層,外形獨特,像一顆通透的水晶。外牆由數以百計的 菱形玻璃框格組成幕牆,既能透視店內陳列的服飾,亦可欣賞店外 景緻。室內空間層層相扣,彷如一個整體,顧客難以識別層與層之 間的分隔。

由於建築地點的四周沒有任何特色,加上周圍的建築物較矮,使Herzog & de Meuron在創作上有很大的自由度,並激發了他們設計的意 念:把大樓建造成具標誌性的高樓,同時預留公共空間來營造歐陸式 廣場,容許遊人即使不到旗艦店瀏覽,亦可到開闊的廣場休憩。

橫向的管道是樓層過渡的空間, 亦是層層扣合的一個媒體,它好 比山洞一樣,瀰漫安逸寧靜的氣 氛。這個設計並不只於滿足結構 性功能,同時亦成為外眺景觀的 長廊-站在管道內,透過半透 明外牆間的細小玻璃窗可以觀賞東 京市的迷人景色,令這座旗艦店成 為享受視覺感官的場所。而位於管 道盡頭的試衣間,座落於透明和磨 砂玻璃幕牆間,營造出時而模糊時 而澄明的效果。

PRADA專門店一向採用標準玻璃 陳列箱及貨架,但經過研究和測 試後,Herzog & de Meuron最終 制定出一套像市集貨攤的產品陳列 方式必須不用太高,讓桌面上的商 品盡收顧客的眼簾。此外,桌面亦 必須別具特色,予人深刻印象。有 見及此,Herzog & de Meuron構 思這些「陳列桌」時,特別採用了 圓形角位設計,產生柔和的效果, 並把此意念延伸至長椅式設計,同 時加入內置燈光。

PRADA旗艦店內其中一項高科技 設計便是水下通氣管。設計目的是 創造出仿如潛水艇水下通氣管的物 體,以傳送影像、聲音與光線。這 些獨立的水下通氣管富有多樣化功 能,構成店內不同特色、大小及形 狀的螢幕,不單只能隨時展示紐約 PRADA旗艦店的佈置陳設,亦方 便日後革新設計路向。此外,水 下通氣管除可以用以展示PRADA 的不同產品系列外,還可作為管 道內的播音器,讓顧客在悠揚樂 章中享受購物的樂趣。

In 1999, Prada started the “Epicenter Store” programme which stemmed from the Company’s desire to reinvent the concept of shopping. Masters of architecture were invited to create innovative environments that accommodate more products and most importantly, focus on the individual’s perception and generate a fresh retail experience. Prada’s new Epicenter covers 30,140 sq ft. This flagship designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, opened in June 2003 in Tokyo Aoyama, follows the opening of Rem Koolhaas’s Prada Broadway store in New York. The extreme heterogeneity of the area and the surrounding low-rise buildings gave a lot of freedom in creation as there is no need to meet any contextual requirements. Such freedom inspired Herzog & de Meuron to make the store more visible, which meant somehow higher and, in addition, to create the kind of public open space often seen in Europe. This plaza is a place where people can meet and relax, even without visiting the store. The Tokyo store has six storeys with a remarkable appearance akin to a crystal. Its facade, comprising

a diamond-shaped grid filled with hundreds of glass panels, offers unique views inwards of the products on display, and outwards across the city. Inside the building, the space is fluid, with connections between each of the floors so that visitors do not really distinguish between floors but perceive the building as one continuous space. The horizontal tubes are like caves, like a special topographical feature of a landscape that cultivates an undisturbed, intimate atmosphere. They are not only structural, but they also act as viewing corridors, by directing people’s attention to the city around the building. In the tubes the glass of the facade is translucent, with small sections of clear glass offering a privileged view of the Tokyo cityscape, making the whole building an instrument of perception. The fitting rooms are at the ends of the tubes between glass walls that alternate between transparency and opaqueness, sharpness and blurring. Standardized glass display cases and shelving are usually adopted in Prada stores. However, Prada’s Epicenter

Herzog & de Meuron wanted to develop a slightly more “primitive,” more archaic form of presentation, somewhat like a market stall. After experimenting with their shape and heights, they came to the conclusion that the tables should be low enough to be viewed in their entirety from above. It became clear that they should have an impact as independent objects. The edges of these “table-objects” were therefore rounded to soften their shape and make the act of walking around them even “smoother.” The tables led to the development of a bench type, which is also illuminated from within. Snorkels are one of the key elements under the IT projects in this flagship store. The idea was

to create snorkel-like elements that transport images, sound and light. An important factor was that the snorkels could be used for different purposes, which ultimately determined the features, shape and size of the screen. These snorkels led to the possibility not only of presenting the content of the Epicenter in New York at any time, but also of taking a different direction in the future. Also, they function as Sound Showers in the tubes, where they generate an intimate space as well as an entirely different atmosphere that is separate from the acoustic background elsewhere.

With a total area of more than 20,000 sq ft, the two-level Lane Crawford Shanghai flagship store is located in the hustling and bustling Shanghai Times Square, erecting a totally different image from that of Lane Crawford in Hong Kong. The designer was asked to create a modern, luxury, clean and open environment. In this open shopping space originally comparted into smaller distinct stores, the designer defined various retail zones by the design of ceiling and lighting, including men's and women's wear, shoes, domestic products, cafe and boutiques. Since the flagship store is located in a large shopping mall, it called for a careful selection of common materials, attention to circulation, entrance location, transitional spaces and signs in order to maintain a store identity connecting two levels. On the other hand, the brand-new fixtures, unique decoration and soft lighting also add a sense of simplicity, neatness and flexibility, harmoniously integrated with the small boutiques in the department store. Stainless steel and wood display systems also bring a bright and clean air into the space.

許多國際性品牌都有其統一的室內設計概念,以貫徹各 地分店的形像。香港Escada的設計就是源自品牌德國總 部的意念,以米白色調的裝潢、不 抰 飾面的陳列工具來 襯托產品,而且這簡潔的佈置亦易於配合品牌季節性多 變的設計及主題。 在固有的設計元素上,設計師為店舖注入了三大特色, 分別是:斑馬皮造的凳子和地毯;人造石地面色調清 雅,融合整體中性的粉飾,而在一片米白色中,設計 師利用金屬飾面的馬賽克鋪了一條走道,從門口伸展 到牆上的嵌壁式陳列櫃,成為連繫兩者的一條觸目的 軸線。第三個特點是在柔和的場景燈光下,設計師加 設了兩盞水晶吊燈,營造出華貴而恬靜的氣氛,配合 店舖寬敞的佈局。

International brands usually have their uniform interior standards for their branches all over the world to follow. The design concept of Escada in Hong Kong is very much in keeping with its German headquarters identity in terms of the simple palette of off-white colour and stainless steel display units, which can also be adapted more easily to match the ever-changing seasonal themes. More elements are introduced into the original palette, such as the zebra hide stools and rug, the elegant sand stone flooring, and a metallic mosaic passage running through the off-white space as an eye-catching axis that links up the entrance and the built-in display units on the wall. The two crystal chandeliers add to the grand and tranquil atmosphere, which are also well integrated into the soft ambient lighting and the generous spatial layout.

設計師在有限的自由度裡發揮,透過調暗燈光和加入新材料,以 最少的改 為店舖注入了新鮮感,並同時提昇了商店的形像。 The designer tried to inject into the space some fresh air and uplift the store's image by giving it a new face in terms of lighting and display systems.

有時,翻新的工程要比從零開始 做設計來得困難,因為往往可改 的空間有限,就像Edge為已有十 年歷史的時代廣場Gay Giano店 做的翻新項目一樣,要盡少拆毀 原有的設施,而又能達到客戶的 要求,這對設計師來說確實是一 個大挑戰。 設計師M i c h a e l C h a n的目標是 要賦予店舖新鮮感,並且透過新 的裝潢來提升商店的形像,遂從 燈光及陳列工具著手。首先,他 把原來的棕色裝潢用灰銀色來代 替,並把場景燈光亮度調底一 半,製造了一個暗淡的背景。另 一方面,他在原有的金屬陳列架 上加設了用灰色磨砂玻璃造的 燈箱,使得產品更能「脫穎而 出」。

矩形的店舖裡,離門口最遠的一 個角落通常是人流最少的地方, 要提高顧客參觀這個區域的興趣 是需要一些巧妙的花招的。M ichael利用一條斜的軸線由門口伸 展到店舖的「死角」位置,並去 除了兩者之間的一排陳列架,讓 顧客可以預覽那一區的陳列品; 與此同時,他為這區域注入了一 個特色──單面反光鏡陳列櫃, 鏡後的陳列空間漆上了黑色,並 把光度調至適中,使觀者在照鏡 的同時,又會看到內裡的陳列 品,因而產生出一種朦朧美。這 種具有玩味的陳列手法可以吸引 人們參觀店舖的角落位置。 此外,在這幽暗的氛圍裡,幾幅 巨型的海報燈箱成為了觸目點, 如收銀櫃檯後整幅「燈箱牆」就 是一幅極具魅力的背幕。

Sometimes the design of renovation projects is more difficult than brand new ones due to lack of choices of making changes. The renovation of the ten-year-old Gay Giano store at Times Square was a real challenge to Edge Architects Ltd, who had to meet the requirements of the client as well as undertake minimum removal of original facilities. Michael Chan, the designer, tried to inject into the space some fresh air and uplift the store's image by giving it a new face in terms of lighting and display systems. The original brown finish was replaced by grey silver. The ambient lighting was dimmed by 50% to create a more obscure environment. He also added grey frosted lightboxes on the original metal display shelves to highlight the products. The corner far from the entrance of such a rectangular space is usually the place that attracts the least attention. So it calls for gimmicks to bring up customers' interest in visiting the corner. Michael used a diagonal line to link up the entrance and the 'dead corner', between which a row of display shelves had also been removed for an unblocked view of the area. Moreover, another feature was introduced into the area - the one-way mirror display units. The display space behind the mirror is black painted. When the luminance is properly modulated, the customer can see the products behind the mirror while at the same time see himself in the mirror. The tricky design creates a nebulous beauty, which attracts more customers' attention to the corner. In addition, some huge poster lightboxes have become the highlights in such a dim environment - the 'lightbox wall' behind the cashier makes a very intriguing backdrop.

If you go shopping on Nonglin Xia Road in Guangzhou, a shop front with an English word “EXCEPTION” written reversely would probably draw your attention. It is owned by a Chinese brand - EXCEPTION de MIXMIND, with Ma Ke, who has been elected as one of the top ten designers in China, as its design majordomo. EXCEPTION is a brand which promotes minimalistic spirit. The products are characterised by their quality of clear modesty, maintaining a balance between comforts and functional needs. And through the fusion of cultural and fashionable essences, the designer has created an “exceptional” style. This style has been extended and adopted into the first shop of the brand on Nonglin Xia Road. The main colour used was white. Its freshness and elegance had opened up the shop spatially. The wooden long table matches the white roses to offer natural calmness. And the fare face concrete cashier contrasts with the white steel pipe seats to reveal functional simplicity.

White square lamps are arranged orderly under the open ceiling on the first floor. They lighten up the goods softly while the irregular round-edged closets break up the drowsy atmosphere. White square tables of Japanese style provide a resting place for customers. With the casual decoration of some green leaves and flowers, the environment becomes more vivid and exhilarating. This presence of liveliness in the tranquil approach had certainly given the “exceptional” motto of the shop a spatial representation.

Cozzi, a chain store in Hong Kong, sells local designed fashion products of the same name. The design aims to erect a simple and trendy international image, and is also required to outstand the characteristics of the brand. The shop adopts a sophisticated design concept overwhelmed in a grey purple tone, simple yet equipped with interesting details: the slim stainless steel framework mirrors the envy of women for slender figures; the metal pearl curtain emanates sort of female charms as well as a sense of openness and dynamic. The designer noticed that customers had a higher demand for the standard of shopping places. So they heaved on the sense of space in the design and the treatment of space was particularly based on the study of consuming behavior. The boutique is divided into the frontal display area and hanging display area. Suit dresses are hung in the frontal display area with the front facing the buyers to highlight the brand image, while garments in the hanging display area are displayed in a classified way with the side facing the buyers. Mirrors arranged here offer great convenience for customers to freely pair up their favorites. Other accessories are purposely displayed beside the fitting room to stimulate the buyers’ interest in formulating their own dress code.

經營個人護理及營養補充產品傳銷的美國如新企業,在香港設立了亞 洲區最大的分銷店──如新廣場,由英卓設計工程有限公司承辦及設 計。如新廣場並非純粹售賣商品的地方,廣場內還設有美容俱樂部、 演講廳、商務中心、網絡區和健康諮詢站,提供一站式保健和美容服 務。 廣場佔地一萬七千呎,要在這寬敞的空間裡雅致地陳列貨品,而又不 至過於疏落實非易事。另外,客戶要求旗下的兩個品牌(營養補充品 Pharmanex及個人護理產品Nu Skin)的產品均得到相等的陳列空間, 還得突出兩者之不同,這對設計師來說極具挑戰 。 故此,設計師從行走路線著手,以顧客瀏覽的次序來分佈空間。首先 一出電梯,迎面是以兩個品牌的主色藍及綠為區分的玻璃陳列箱。要 令顧客安心 買營養補充品,產品的成份和功效必須清晰地顯示出來, 讓顧客一目了然,因此,設計師把營養補充品區大幅牆面都設計成玻 璃陳列櫃和展示板,提供豐富的資訊,讓直銷商邊帶領顧客參觀,邊 介紹產品。

(左頁)光和透明感是廣場的重要元素, 加上粉色和白色的配合,整體給人清新簡 潔的感覺。店內天花飾以弧形燈槽,為樓 底不高的空間營造了 感。 (Left page) Light and transparency are the key elements of the plaza, along with plain white finishes, an overall feeling of freshness and simplicity is projected.

設計師亦因應顧客的需要,在兩 個陳列區旁設置不同的配套設 施。在營養補充品的陳列區旁邊 是健康資料庫及網絡區,以便顧 客登上互聯網來查閱公司的各項 資料,或可到健康咨詢站去做檢 查以瞭解個人健康狀況,從而選 擇合適的產品。而個人護理產品 陳列區毗連的美容俱樂部,則是 進行教授美容化妝的課室。

1, 2> 設計師把網絡區設計成電 話亭般,由夾入了海報的玻璃 分隔,既可界定空間,又可當 作宣傳工具。 The internet zone is designed imitating the shape of call box and is separated by glass with posters which define the space and serve as promotion tool at the same time.

3> 健康資料庫裡的書櫃上噴了石頭漆、地面鋪設了米仔石,再配合 適當的桌椅和用作屏風的球形樹飾,為區內增添不少自然氣息。 The bookshelves in the health library are coated with stone paint, and the floor is lined with terrazzo tiles. All these combined with appropriate tables and chairs and round tree decoration, which used as screen, adding a natural sense to this section.

越過兩個陳列區便來到 貨中心。 兩線全系列的產品都陳列在弧形 的燈箱和玻璃架上,貨品仍然以 品牌的主色來分區,清楚易認。 經過付款櫃台,可到達「名人 堂」,那裡牆壁上掛滿公司直銷 領袖的照片,對直銷商們起著激 勵的作用。 從「名人堂」走出來,會經過一 個可容納三 多人的演講廳。每當 講座完畢時人潮便會湧現,為了 疏導人流,培訓室前的走廊較闊 落。而走道由闊到窄,亦加強了 透視感。另外,設計師特意採用 玻璃陳列架來當 貨中心的隔牆, 以讓進出演講廳的人們看到 貨中 心裡的活 、陳列的貨品及介紹產 品的海報,同時也營造了通透明 亮的環境。

Nu Skin Enterprise Hong Kong, engaged in the direct selling of personal care and health care products, established in Hong Kong the biggest retail shop in Asia - Nu Skin Enterprises Plaza, designed by Fitop Design & Contracting Ltd. Instead of a place solely for selling, this plaza including seminar room, business centre, internet zone and health consultation corner acts like an information centre, providing "one-stop service" of personal care and health care. The plaza covers 17,000 sq ft, so it needs extra efforts to display goods elegantly without giving the impression of scattering. In addition, the client required that its two brands (nutritional supplements: Pharmanex; personal care: Nu Skin) be highlighted by their different features while having a display room of same size. This is a great challenge for the designer. Therefore, starting with the route, the designer defined the space according to the order customers visit. First, visitors are presented with showcases distinguished by chief colours (blue and green) of the two brand names at the entrance. The designer turned large parts of metope of the green food section into showcase and exhibition board which provide abundant information including the ingredients and efficacy of the products. This is convenient both for the distributors to introduce the products while showing the visitors around and for the customers to have a clear view of the green food.

貨中心的形式如同超級市場,顧客可以自 由參觀選 貨品。 The form of the showcase section is like that of a supermarket where the customers could choose and buy goods freely.

貨中心予人開揚自然的感覺。設計師希望 能夠融合店舖的設計與產品,使商品的陳 列不至於太疏落,並可以隨市場推廣的需 要而變更。 The showcase section gives the feeling of spacious and natural. The design of the store and the products are well blended. The display of the goods are not too scattered for the consideration of promotion and marketing.

天花上一個飛船狀的橢圓形燈飾是 貨中心 的焦點所在,也方便日後市場部進行推廣 活 時,用作吸引點。 The elliptic light decoration resembling a flying machine in the ceiling is the focus of the showcase section. This spot serves as the attraction for promotion activity organised by the marketing department.

Pharmanex採用草藥材料製造,所以設計師 特別用仿竹的綠色長形光管來點綴陳列架, 增強其「天然」的形像。 The bamboo-like long green lighting pipes are used to decorate the display shelf to strengthen Pharmanex's natural image.

貨中心內,兩線全系列的產品都陳列在弧 形的燈箱和玻璃架上,貨品以品牌的主色 來分區,清楚易認。 In the showcase section, two sets of full series of products are on display in winding light boxes and shelves. The goods, distinguished by the chief colour of the brands, are made easy to recognise.

A complete set of facilities meets the need of the customers including a health library and internet zone next to the nutritional supplements section, where visitors could surf the internet for more company information or receive health tests in the health consultation corner to have a better understanding of the products which most fit. Closed to the personal care products section is a beauty house where make-up courses are held. Getting across the two exhibition areas, visitors would come to the showcase section. Full sets of products are on display in winding light boxes and glass shelves. These displays are also distinguished by the brand colours. Passing the distribution counter, visitors are presented with the "Hall of Fame", where photos of excellent distributors are put up to serve as a stimulant for the rest.

設計師採用玻璃陳列架來隔開 貨中心和走廊, 以增加兩者之間的視覺交流,並營造了通透明 亮的環境。玻璃陳列架不到頂,好讓空氣更流 通。另外,沿著玻璃牆的地上和天花都有射燈 以強調走道的透視感覺。 Glass display shelves, used to compart the showcase section and corridor, increase the visual communication of the two and help create a bright and clean environment. For better ventilation, the shelves are constructed without leading to the ceiling. Furthermore, spotlights are installed both along the floor and the ceiling of the wall to highlight the sense of perspective in the corridor.

After stepping out of the hall of fame, customers will then pass a seminar room with a capacity of 300 people. Every time a lecture comes to an end, there appears the stream. In view of this problem, the corridor in front of the room is featured by its broadness. And the design of the whole aisle in its reducing width strengthens a sense of perspective. In addition, glass shelves are used as the partition for the showcase section without blocking the view to the interior, allowing the visitors who come out from the seminar room to have a full view of the goods and posters on display. This design also helps to create a clean and bright environment.

Kitson, a 2,500-sq-ft boutique in a fashionable shopping district on Roberston Boulevard, promotes a eclectic array of products and designers. The wide variety of products makes it necessary to devise a highly flexible display system while maintaining a coherent interior environment. A series of modular wood and glass shelves, stained with a graphite pigment, encompass the perimeter of the store at random intervals and adapt to the changing needs of the client. A sky-lit well exposes the existing structure and highlights two central “banquet” display tables, each housing a series of wood and glass volumes that showcase designer product lines. A subtle material palette of wood, aluminum, glass and accent colours are employed throughout the store and emerge at the storefront display and at a protruding window sign, exposing the interior elements to the urban streetscape.

Loang & Noi, unlike most other jewellers, specialise in designing and crafting jewellery to the very individual preferences of their clients so that every piece is unique. Their image suggested sophistication, elegance, subtlety, yet always with a twist that comes not from a corporate marketing tag line but evidenced from their work. Because of the close and very personal service with each client, discretion is an important part of its service and business operational mode. These led to conceptual ideas of the use of materials that are dichotomous in character and the balance of these materials would provide a subconscious intrigue and tension in spite of the balance. Importantly, the

use of the materials must be honest to its inherent visual and tactile nature. It is however, the architectural space and processional experience as described by that space is everything else founded on. The entry from the side, to the initial experience of the vaulted volume, and the focus of being centrally aligned under the vault when being served all underlie the foundation for the experience, with light and material suggesting its nuances. Timber and glass are seen to be opposites that counter and complement each other - the complex character and raw warmth of timber is in contrast to the cool, impeccable finish of large plates of glass. To further the visual and textural experiences, olive sheer curtains provide another layer for light and colour filtering. Once the positioning of the planar elements of timber and glass is deemed to be colour balanced, the main architectural focus of the barrel

vaulted ceiling is to be rendered in the neutrality of white. Barley white is chosen as it reacts well with the contributory colours emitted by the timber, glass and the curtains. Most importantly, that white allows for a very smooth and gradual wash of light from the suspended uplighters. This helps the eyes to read the curvature of the vault, and the lightness draws the eyes upwards. The colour render resulting from the reflected light is adjustable subject to the light intensity. This adjustability allows for different moods, whether it is the launch of a new collection, or the day-to-day retail and service operations. As an accent, and because the rest of the colours are already deemed to be balanced, white marble topped meeting tables with alternate w h i t e a n d b l a c k l a c q u e re d fiberglass chairs are lined axially under the ceiling vault.

黑木地板和深色粉飾突顯了粉紅色的陳列燈箱。在幽暗的背景燈光烘托之下,視線自然地被射燈所強調的產品吸引著。 Dark finishes and dark wooden flooring help outstanding the pink display light boxes. With dim ambience light, focus is drawn to the products highlighted by the spotlights.

Splendid and glittering are the signature of most jewellery shops. However, it is always difficult to tell whether it is the jewellery that is sparkling, or it is the spotlight that is dazzling. The two brand new Pink Box shops in Guangzhou designed by siDE Ltd feature a dark background, suggesting a breakthrough from the conventional jewellery boutique. Inspired by the essence of sleek elegance, the overall scheme displays a strong character of personality, simplicity and dynamics. Upon entering the entrance, visitors are presented with a spectacular portal and exquisite self-illuminated "pink boxes", forming the symbolic feature of the shop that doubles the perceived depth of the space and increases visibility. The luxurious sense of glamour is not expressed through grandiose decoration, but is convinced through soothing-to-the-eye lighting contrasts with dark wooden flooring and strong-coloured furniture. Instead of putting spotlights inside the showcases, they are found on top and sometime, under the displays. In this way, products are highlighted without producing any glare. The new Pink Box shops not only have an impressive fresh image, but their flexible layout is also adjustable to shops of different size and shape, enabling similar setting to be fitted into other chain stores.

a02 @ Shanghai XTD 這所全新的a02商店座落於人來 人往的上海新天地。設計師A l e x Choi首要面對的問題便是把兩層 原本並不雙通的單位改建成一個 整體而中 的空間,以襯托出各式 各樣的商品。 除依據銅鑼灣旗艦店的既有設計 模式,A l e x在設計此項目時,特 別考慮到每種產品的陳列位置、 顏色的運用和空間的層疊法等 等,目的是要引領顧客自然地由 一點走向另一點,並沿途溜覽所 有商品。 從大街走入商店便會看到以咖啡 室及擺放生活用品為主的活 空 間。透過安排這兩類比較中 的空 間在地下入口處能有效地吸引路 人進入店舖。生活用品陳列區是

由層層上升的地台所組成的,帶領著顧客向上進 發,在不知不覺間到達一座螢光粉紅樓梯。這種 空間變化是經過細密的結構分析而得出的結果。 一樓的間隔是因應商店本身修長的形狀,各類貸 品整齊地由頭至尾排列在不同的區域之內,而在 店舖末端可再次找到生活用品區作為一個完滿的 結尾。開放式的陳列空間令所有商品一覽無遺。 為了突出a02產品的多元化,室內的裝潢必需盡 量保持自然和中 。Alex除了採用木條作為主要材 料來做層架和天花架的骨幹外,還選用了暗藏燈 盤作為基本照明。對於物料的運用,Alex有一份 堅持,就是要忠誠地表達出物料本身的特質,好 像那些木層架一樣,並不需要任何裝飾也能散發 出美感來;同樣地,那些光管雖然被一層玻璃包 圍著,但只要一亮燈,內裡的構造和空間便會顯 現眼前。

咖啡室及擺放書本的陳列架 能吸引顧客停留。 The setting of the cafe and the book racks encourage customer to come and stay.

This new a02 shop is located in Shanghai Xintiandi where people from all walks of life come and shop. Designer Alex Choi is commissioned to renovate the two detached storeys to form a harmonic neutral space for displaying a variety of life products. With reference to a set of parameters already established in the design of Causeway Bay flagship store, Alex faced a new challenge in creating a clear and yet interesting path to link up various display spaces horizontally and vertically. By the precision in locating the products, the use of colour and layering of spaces, an exploratory route is developed to drive the customers naturally from one point to another.

Immediately behind the full height glazed facade is a cafe and also a series of platforms for life style products as the inception point. These areas are considered as neutral spaces where people of all ages and g e n d e r s a re a t t r a c t e d . T h e gradual stepping up of the display platforms as a design tactic, encourages customers to move upward unconsciously and smoothly to a point where a bright red staircase is revealed in the centre of a double volume space. This spatial change is definitely not a coincidence but a thoughtful decision made by the designer after opening the existing structural slab. By now, going up would no longer be an obstacle for the shoppers. The linearity of shop profile on the first floor governs the arrangement of displays. Different kinds of products are placed section by section along the path to the end where the most attractive zone - life style product display area appears again. All the spaces are visually connected in the open plan.

In order to create a natural and neutral backdrop for the displays, wood is chosen to be the prime material for display racks and false ceiling grid whereas light trough is used in majority to provide background lighting. The modular wooden racks can accommodate a variety of products by altering the combination of shelves. Alex emphasized on the honesty in disclosing the quality of materials, just like the wooden display racks whose character is exposed without any decorative elements. Another example is the fluorescent light installed inside glass panels, its quality and spatial depth is exposed once the power is on.

a02 @ Ocean Terminal LCX 由於環境相異,這裡所創造的空間效果與上海新天地是截然不 同的。在海港城內,商店並沒有裡外之分,它本身已處於一 物 空間中,因此店舖的開放與隱蔽程度是這個設計項目的首要考 慮因素。 在店面部份,Alex再次利用開放式空間來擺放各種生活商品, 藉以吸引路人。為了加強外圍公共空間和內裡私密空間的對 比,設計師採用了實心木板來圍攏出這個生活商品區,只留有 中間作為通道。 隱藏了的位置便是擺放品牌自家設計以及外來託賣產品的地 方。與生活商品區不同,這裡利用了滿佈小孔的層板作為襯托 及分隔空間的工具,兩個區域相對之下,形成了有趣的虛實對 比。 中間的通道是連繫店舖裡三個陳列區的主要媒介。通道的中心 點設置了收銀櫃檯,它像一個控制台 察著整個店舖。天然木材 及深色玻璃造的櫃檯不單典雅,也是具有功能 的展示桌面。 一如上海新天地的a02 ,A l e x適當地運用了木天花、組合層 架、暗藏燈盤和混凝土地面來營造出一個中 的空間以烘托出多 元化的產品。與此同時,他亦加入了新元素例如印上白鴿圖案 的玻璃裝飾,為店舖增添了活潑氣氛。此外,它還具有實用 , 就是阻隔室外強烈的陽光。

The spatial experience created here is totally different from that of Shanghai Xintiandi due to the differences in site condition. As a part of the Ocean Terminal shopping mall, there is no definite delineation between public circulation and retail space. To control the degree of openness and enclosure became the key issue in this design. The front part of the shop is fully exposed to the passers-by to form a welcoming sign. This area is dedicated for the display of life style products which can attract all kinds of people. In order to dramatise the difference between the public exterior and the private interior spaces, the life style product zone is backed up by solid partitions, leaving only the central

area as the main access to the inside. The second and third zones of the shop are occupied by a02 and consignment fashion. In contrast with the life style display area, these zones are enclosed with perforated wooden s c re e n s . T h o s e t r a n s l u c e n t screens perform as display surfaces and at the same time enable visual communication with the spaces behind. The central circulation space links up all three displaying zones. Located in the middle of the path, the cashier counter acts like a control room overlooking the whole shop. Natural w ood toget her wit h shaded glass creates an elegant counter top as well as a functional surface for display. The use of wooden false ceiling grid, the modular display racks, the light trough and the plain concrete floor finishes is again adopted here to generate a neutral and natural background for displays. Nevertheless, new element like the orange pigeon is introduced to project vivid atmosphere. This imagery also helps to screen off some of the direct sunlight passing t h ro u g h t h e g l a z e d f a c a d e adjacent to the open courtyard.

Located in a retail and leisure area popular with teenagers and young adults, Nike Inspired 1 store is a four-storey stand-alone building, surrounded on three sides by bustling streets. With a floor area of approximately 4,600 sq ft, the first three floors are dedicated to retail areas with the top floor retained for stock storage. A central void cut through the three storeys to give a strong vertical dynamic. For the first three floors the facade is very open with a glazed curtain wall, separated by horizontal and vertical aluminium frames. This not only creates a clean line to the architecture but also reveals the simplicity of the interior and the colourful merchandise.

Whilst the design concept is very much in keeping with the Nike retail identity in terms of the planes of bright colour and grid-based design, much of the refined concept was taken from the surroundings. The simple architecture and strong planes of colour appeal to the focus customer group and create a dynamic image despite the relatively small scale of the building. In the evening, the open facade allows light and colour to spill out of the building and into the street below.

Keeping with the American brand identity, the whole design is overwhelmed in an American country style. The display system is mainly composed of wardrobes, display islands and tables, all in a rural aura. However, Nathan Tsang, the designer, also employed stainless steel for some modernity to cater for the local market. The key tone of the shop should follow the brand ‘s logo, thus red is used to enhance the image of the shop. The background then becomes lighter in terms of light colour maple and white emulsion paint. A red rug in arc shape is specially arranged at the entrance to make a strong first sight impact on customers. The shop sells kids’ wear. To offer convenience to customers

like pregnant women and parents with their children, the design has to be safe as well as userfriendly. So it is necessary to keep a generous space and smooth circulation. The central display islands are also very light and delicate with few sharp angles. Another feature in the layout is the free-styled window display, which is well integrated into the shopping area; the use of full height glass window also adds to the openness of the space. To brighten up the space, white emulsion paint and white/yellow lights are employed on the artificial ceiling. However, blue light is specially used in the fitting room to address some soft change in atmosphere, which gives a sense of continuity in space.

Suzuya連鎖店在香港已有三十年歷史,新設計需賦予這老字號一身與 時並進卻又不失傳統風韻的外貌。設計師梁兆新以外地人看日本文化 的目光作框架,將日本的典型特色抽取出來,以豐富整體。 在要體現日本傳統的訴求下,設計意念上借用了日式鈴屋(日式房子 的姓氏門牌)的意義,象徵 地在獨一的藍色弧形壁面上放上商店標 誌;另外也在正掛區的底部排列了木凳及仿日式米糧包裝的腳凳,既 散發原始的風味,也巧妙地在現代風格中滲入日本風情。這些凳子甚 至有著飾品陳列及試身間座位的功能。 由於樓底高,天花板上也加設取意於日本鳥居的短木樑,並加強了建 築上的結構感。事實上,這與藍色壁面的處理手法一樣,以原身的結 構化為店內的裝飾。

為了增添現代感,正掛區的陳列木架框拼上了常用於建築的鋼絲網作 特色襯托;同時,不鋼架也配上木塊和木條子,以木的自然質樸來 柔和金屬剛冷的質感,使傳統的日本文化和現代時尚的格調得以兼 融。

The chain store Suzuya has already had a 30-year history in the local market. The brand-new design imposed an ever-renewing image yet keeping the traditional essence at the same time. Designer San Leung, with the eyes of a foreigner, extracted the typical characteristics of Japanese culture to represent the totality. The brand logo on the curving monolithic blue-painted wall is reminiscent of the door-plate on Japanese house which is adopted to reflect traditional Japanese culture. The Japanese-style wooden chairs under the frontal display area not only function as display surface and seats in fitting rooms but also induced a raw Japanese savor in modernity. With the high floor height, San introduced the form of Torii (Japanese temple monument) by adding short wooden beams on the ceiling to enrich the structural sense. This is the same design tactic as the blue wall where the designer turned the structure components into interior decor. To enhance the modern stylish feeling, the wooden shelves at the frontal display area is set off by metal wire mesh commonly used in architecture. The stainless steel shelves are also incorporated with wooden plates and strips. The raw and natural quality of wood can soften the cool and hard texture of metal, symbolizing a fusion of traditional Japanese culture and contemporary style.

愛美是女人的天 。 女士們不只喜歡穿著漂亮的衣 服,更愛炫耀一身亮麗的打扮。 設計師陳詩華為X O N E設計的上 海旗艦店就是從女士買衫的流程 出發,設想在過程中發生有趣事 情的可能,以增添顧客 物的樂 趣。 每一個女 都希望自己擁有模特 兒的身段,穿著設計一流的衣 飾,走在天橋上,是以設計師特 別在店舖後方建造了一條修長的 「天橋」。玻璃燈箱造的地台及 其變幻的燈光,加上一整幅牆的 鏡子,營造了「霓虹天橋」的效

果。平台兩端各設有一個試身 室,女士們從試身室出來,穿著 新衣走在「天橋」上,邊照照鏡 子,邊幻想一下自己當了模特 兒,這正是設計師刻意安排的一 項另類 物經驗。 除了這個Catwalk區之外,整間店 舖就再沒有其他鏡子,所以人們 必須走到「天橋」前照鏡,使這 區域成為焦點。此外,設計師亦 加入了一點趣味和驚喜,在單面 反光鏡後設置了數台電視,隨機 地播放商店的服裝,或一些人的 笑臉,內容可隨需要而更新。因 利成便,此區亦是公司日後在店 裡舉行活 的最佳場地。

設計師從女士們喜歡穿著新衣照鏡的心態出發,重點放在一面大鏡子及燈光不斷變化的玻 璃燈箱地台上,製造出一個小型「天橋」,成為店舖的主要吸引點。 The raised lit platform made of glass together with the mirror wall creates a 'neon catwalk' effect.The changing light the light boxes give out adds vibrancy into the space and make this 'catwalk' fitting area the focal point of the boutique.

設計師透過採用不同的牆面和鋪地物料,清楚劃分出三個區域來,分 別是黑色大理石的櫥窗陳列區、木材為主的 物區和玻璃、鏡面的試衣 區,並同時營造出「框架」的視覺效果。 店面朝西向陽,所以為免室內過熱,遮陽設施是必要的;設計師遂在 櫥窗玻璃上貼上了條紋薄膠片,不單能夠遮擋陽光,同時又容許路人 望見店內情景,光影斑斕,與室內環境很配合。膠片的花樣圖案可按 店舖的季節 推廣而轉變。 簡約的設計成功為這個新品牌定立了一個高中檔的形像。

Love of beauty is nature of all women. Women like beautiful dress. What's more, they like to show off the new dress they wear. Michael Chan, designer of the XONE flagship shop in Shanghai, had imagined various possibilities that could happen to a lady who was shopping, trying to bring more interests into the 'beautyseeking' experience.

(上)店面朝西向陽,設計師在櫥 窗玻璃上貼了條紋薄膠片,作為遮 陽工具,同時營造了光影斑斕的效 果。 (Above) Strips of films are employed on the window glass exposed to the west, which not only act as a window shade but also create a vibrant effect of light and shadow.

To be in a fashion model shape and walk along the catwalk in first class designer garment is the dream of all women. Therefore the designer specially created a long 'catwalk' at the rear part of the shop. The raised lit platform made of glass together with the mirror wall creates a 'neon catwalk' effect. There is a fitting room at both ends of the platform. A lady comes out of the fitting room and walks along the 'catwalk', looking at herself dressed up in the mirror, and imagining that she were at that moment a fashion model - that is exactly what the designer wanted, an alternative shopping experience. The mirror in the catwalk area is the only one in the shop, which makes the area the focal point that attracts the buyers. Moreover, TV screens behind the mirror randomly play images of the shop's products or people's smile faces, adding more interests and surprises into the space. It also boasts the best arena for activities.

煤氣公司,一個已經創立140年的大型機構,但仍與時並 進,尋求突破,在設計新一代的煤氣客戶中心時注入創新概 念,使室內設計更富年青感和現代感,以全新面貌為客戶提 供更豐富的多元化增值服務。 位於旺角的煤氣客戶中心,佔地2,300平方呎,經過重新裝 修後,整個中心都採用了落地玻璃,使室內空間更為寬敞開 揚,感覺更為親切舒服。 設計師以新一代的年青夫婦為對像,替煤氣公司營造了一個 體貼周到、靈活多變的嶄新形像。客戶中心內以示範單位的 形式展示產品,提供更舒適自然的服務環境,讓人感受到家 的溫馨感覺。設計師將客戶中心分為三個區域:客戶服務、 煤氣產品展覽及明火美食推廣區,方便顧客尋找所需要的服 務。

(左頁)煤氣美食區除備有各國烹 飪書籍可供翻閱及選 外,亦不時有 即席烹飪示範。 (Left page) In the cuisine area, the published recipes from all over the world are available with live demonstration from time to time.

一般的客戶服務專櫃都設於中心 的中央部分,而嶄新客戶中心則 打破傳統,把專櫃設於近門口的 位置,方便顧客作查詢。 現今都市人重視家居環境和生活 素質,卻沒有足夠的時間,因 此,新一代煤氣客戶中心提供一 站式服務,除售賣爐具產品外, 還提供相關資訊,增設了烹飪書 籍、家具精品和烹飪示範等等, 是締造完美現代家居和體現優質 生活的好地方。

客戶中心設計簡約而現代化,以 示範單位的形式展示產品,務求 為客戶提供更舒適自然的服務環 境,營造家的溫馨感覺。 In the minimal interior of modernity, products are presented in separate demonstration units where customers will find the service environment cosy and homey.

In spite of having 140 years of history, the Hong Kong and China Gas Company Ltd (also known as Towngas) always seeks for new challenges to improve their standard of services. The company seized the chance to incorporate innovative concepts in designing the new customer centre which projects an energetic and modern image. The centre aims at offering valueadded and diversified services to customers with a fresh appearance. With full-height glass panels as main space defining partitions, the 2,300 sq-ft newly renovated centre appears to be even more spacious, cordial and comfortable.

Targeting on new generations of young married couples, the centre is designed into a considerate space allowing for flexibilities. Inside the centre, products are presented in separate demonstration units where customers will find the service environment cosy and homey. And for the convenience of the customers, the centre is divided into three zones according to the three major functions of the centre: the customer service area, products demonstration area and cuisine area. Customers can access to respective area directly and easily. Without following the tradition of placing the customer service counter in the centre of the space, the convenience of customers is again emphasized by locating the counter near to the entrance. Understanding the increasing demand on quality living of our citizens, the new generation Mongkok customer centre provides comprehensive one-stop service for those who look for excellence in standard of living.

自然與高科技,給人兩種截然不同的感覺。但金明香港有限公司為Oregon Scientific 設計的全球首間生活概念店,卻將高科技產品融入在自然環境之中,糅合兩種感覺, 帶出自由、無拘束的生活模式。 概念店除了用作陳列產品外,還能帶出點點的自然氣息,成為顧客舒綬壓力的場所。 因此設計師便興起建造「氧吧」這個獨特意念。「氧吧」設在店舖角落裡一個升高了 的弧形地台上,與陳列區分隔開來。「氧吧」的天花板上噴上雲彩紋,配合變幻的燈 光效果,再加上玻璃地面上的流水波紋和投影在牆上的大自然景色,人們只要安坐沙 發椅上便可放鬆身心。此外,「氧吧」還提供呼吸純氧氣、健康飲品等服務,對於在 繁忙的金融商業區工作的上班一族來說,Oregon Scientific生活概念店無疑提供了歇 息的空間。 此外,為了要帶出自由、無拘 束的生活模式,設計師想到 以水來代表這種自由無限的感 覺。如後印象主義大師塞尚所 言,大自然的世界裡本來就不 存在直線和矩形,而水的形狀 不一,隨意奔放的形態,就正 好反映了大自然既有的自由 感。店內很多不規則造型的創 作,例如天花燈飾和陳列架、 牆上的水波紋玻璃及弧形的木 地板鋪地,均以水的形態作為 創作靈感。 至於陳列區則以銀色噴漆為主 調,迎合其電子產品高科技、 時尚的形像;而店舖整體以玻 璃為主要物料,使店面保持明 亮及增強空間感。設計師認為 一間商店的焦點是在付款處, 因為無論是查詢、付款及取貨 都在這裡進行,是顧客和店員 互 交流較多的地方,設計師遂 把整個店裡所採用過的重要設 計元素,以「集大成」的手法 運用到櫃台的設計上,令它更 為突出。

設計師把品牌的 縮寫OS設計成 陳列架。 The OS display shelf represents the abbreviation of the brand.

Nature and hi-tech project two completely different feelings, while the first lifestyle concept shop of Oregon Scientific designed by Kingsmen Hong Kong, blended hi-tech into natural environment, suggesting a free and unconstrained life mode.

The display area is finished with silver colour so as to match with hi-tech and fashionable image of electronic products. Glass is highly applied to make the shop look brighter and spacious. The designer believed that the cashier's counter is the focus of a shop as most interaction between customers and staff happened there such as inquiry, checking and taking goods. Therefore, it is highlighted by adding all the key design elements that were adopted in other parts of the shop.

Besides showcasing products, the concept shop also offers a place where its customers can refresh themselves. So a unique idea of building an oxygen bar came up to the designer's mind. The oxygen bar is set on a raised arc platform in the corner of the shop, separated from the display area. With the ever-changing shining colour-lights, the clouds sprayed on the ceiling, setting off by the ripple projected on the glass floor and the natural scenery on the wall, a cozy environment is created. Customers especially those who work hard in the busy financial district can relieve their stress in this comfortable oxygen bar. In addition, the designer wanted to use water to express the feeling of boundless freedom along with the unconstrained life mode. Post-impressionism master Paul Cezan once said: there are no straight lines and matrixes in nature. The irregular and unrestrained state of water thus inspired the forms of many objects inside the shop, such as the organic shapes of suspended lighting and shelves, the wave pattern on the glass showcases and the curvature of the wooden path.

櫃台的設計集全店重要元素之大成,包括銀色噴漆、弧形台面、為呼應「氧吧」而採 用的藍色紙皮石以及配合木地板而選用的棕色紙皮石。 The design of the cashier's counter assembled all the key design elements including silver finishes, curvy tabletop, blue mosaics and brown mosaic that match with the oxygen bar and the wooden path respectively.

constraining the use of orange and blue, a bright and vivid corporate image is created. Above all, the designer injected new insight by means of lighting and display arrangement. Instead of using spotlight on metallic product that causes glare, circular white light troughs are applied to provide general lighting while blue light troughs are employed to highlight specific products. Difference from the conventional practice of hanging plasmas on walls, they are now free-standing in the shop to provide a better angle for the customers to appreciate their slimness. The staircase with dark flooring and grey-coloured glass railings is an "information hub" linking up the three floors. The flickering LED screens on wall, which keep on displaying useful information not only creates a dynamic ambience but also articulates the hi-tech products in the retail space.

展覽廳與陳列室只有一線之差,分別並不在於展品是非賣或可買,而在 於前者展出的物品富於藝術性,後者則別具功能價值。而Lourve Gallery提出的一個概念就是「陳列室不只是陳列室,傢具亦不只是傢具, 顧客所看到的,是擺放在畫廊的藝術品。」故此,Lourve Gallery以展 廊形式將世界各地設計獨特的傢具、燈飾及擺設展現人前。 Lourve Gallery位於中環律敦治中心的Design Showcase內,面積達 六千平方呎,由Joseph Sy & Associates設計。沿梯而下,在Louvre Gallery外就可以瞥見三幅「立體畫」──三個經特別處理的玻璃櫥窗; 在厚厚的「畫框」內展示了獨特的傢具構圖,讓參觀者預覽陳列室的產 品。設計師在「畫架」兩邊掛上帷幔,帷幔向店裡收窄,其微微的斜度 足以加強畫面的透視感,仿若一個劇場空間,以更活潑的形式把陳列傢 具的個性顯露出來。

That’s how Lourve Gallery showcases the furniture, light fittings and other furnishings of unique design from all around the world.

Lourve Gallery, designed by Joseph Sy & Associates, is located in Design Showcase at Ruttonjee Centre, Central, with a floor area of 6,000 sq ft. From outside the Gallery one is greeted by three “3D pictures” - specially treated glass windows, which “frame” a unique composition of furniture. The tilting drapes at both sides of the “frame” have enhanced the perspective sense of the theatre-like space, which exposes the character of the furniture display in a more dramatic way. In such a generous space, the designer used flexible partitions, pendent walls and soft gauze curtains to define different areas and layers. These components are very flexible and can be easily reorganised to meet the changes of display layout. The darkness of the ceiling brings a sense of depth, and the different forms of the ceiling help divide the space. Each area is compassed in a distinctive aura, warm or cold or something, to match the exhibits in it, while all the areas share a common continuity in design to form a smoothly flowing space.

一件家庭用品剛從工廠生產出 來,便會放在貨倉或貨櫃,等待 合適的主人認領。創新家品店 Homeless便以此為設計概念, 將店舖設計成貨倉般,以紅色的 貨櫃作店舖入口,顧客從貨櫃的 一頭走進去,再從另一頭走進 來,就代表進入了這個貨倉,開 始他們對新一代創新傢具的探索 旅程。 要將店舖設計成貨倉般並不容 易,尤幸這個舖位樓底足有15、 16呎高,空間非常實用,而且 業主非常欣賞及鼓勵創新家品店 的概念,在內部裝修、前後門改 動和外牆特大招牌等各方面都很 願意配合,讓設計師Heyman可 以無後顧之憂,盡情發揮。Heyman不單包辦這個「貨倉」的室 內設計,他更是該店的設計總 監,獨家創作店裡售賣的傢具、 家品、擺設等。 工廠和貨倉都是原始簡樸的,為 了表現這種粗獷感,設計師採用 了深灰色的不 抰 、水管、半透 光的鐵絲網和以木線轆吊著的鋼 (右)從店面也可見店舖高 15、16呎的樓底。 (Right) The 15- to 16-feethigh ceiling can be seen from the storefront.

纜作裝潢。簡單的背景和顏色鮮艷的貨品形成強烈的對比,更加突顯 主題所在。 Heyman對貨倉的內部編排亦別有一番心思。貨倉分為上下兩層,上 層是辦公室和燈飾、蠟燭等小型傢具擺設的陳列區。將辦公室設在陳 列室之中,可方便設計師即時回應顧客的意見和要求,同時在介紹貨 品的過程中,或從與顧客的對話中,一有靈感,就可以馬上到樓上進 行創作。 Homeless家品店提供一個寬敞的空間讓顧客隨意選購家居組件,同時 希望與顧客分享每一件產品背後獨特的故事。所以這個貨倉其實是一 個展覽廊、一個藝術館,而不是一個特賣場。

牆上是店主的手繪壁畫。 On the wall is the owner’s hand-drawing fresco.

After the manufacturing process in a factory, domestic products are usually kept in warehouses or containers where they spend their time looking forward to a future “home”. The designer of Homeless, an innovative domestic product store, had captured the essence of this period and designed the store into a warehouse. Passing through the “outside-white and inside-red” container would bring customers into the store and commence an exploration of new-generation innovative furniture.

It is far from easy to design a store into a warehouse. Still, with 15 to16 feet in height, the space was functional and effective. Besides the land owner’s appreciation of the concept behind “homeless” had made the internal decoration, alteration of the front and rear accesses and installation of external huge signboard possible. Heyman, as the art director of the store, not only designs the furniture, domestic products and accessories sold, but also has expressed his talent freely in this interior design.

Factories and warehouses are primitive and rude. In order to convey this sense of rudeness, dark grey stainless steel, steel pipes, translucent wire gauzes and cables suspended from wood line rumble are used for installations. The plain background setting contrasts sharply with various colourful goods, creating an effect which reveals the theme. The designer also paid considerations to the internal layout of the warehouse. He divided the warehouse into

two floors and used the upper floor for office and display area for relatively small furnishings like lightings and candles. It is believed that by locating the office inside the display area, the designer can response to the customers’ requests and suggestions easily and directly. And while the designer gets inspired from having conversation with customers or other activities happening in the store, he can access his office and star t designing in convenience. While providing a capacious space for customers to shop for their home, the domestic product store would also like to share with them the story inherited in every product. With this will to share, this warehouse presents itself tobeanexhibitionspace,anartmuseumbutnevera marketplace.

The Edra showroom in Milan covers a floor area of 10,760 sq ft. This two-storey building is designed as a neutral background for the products. The lower floor houses a sample of production, whilst the upper one is set aside for temporary exhibitions, forming a showcase for the entire collection as well as a design centre featuring the company's inventiveness. The flexible Paesaggi Italiani system with its vast range of colours and finishes, created by the company art director Massimo Morozzi, has been chosen to delineate and divide areas within a exhibition space that is free from architectural trappings, thereby enabling the true character of products to be revealed. edra

因著電訊科技的發展,現代的展 示廳已經不再需要陳列實質的物 件。透過視像的傳送,顧客可以 參觀千里以外的產品。這是位於 中國成都中國惠普有限公司辦公 室裡的一間展示室。 設計師陳軒明把原來的電腦房改 裝成現在的展示室,先把一整面 玻璃窗 蓋,以配合影像投射的需 要。在這間儼如小型電影院的密 空間中,設計師從天、地、牆三 塊平面的物料著手,營造出太空 艙的環境。

(本頁)為了配合公司的高科技 形像,設計師用了較cyber的表 現手法,例如近門口的銀色圓柱 形控制台。 (This page) To mirror the company's hi-tech image, the designer adopted a cybersome approach, such as the silver console table near the entrance. (左頁)設計師把室內唯一一根 柱子用燈箱圍攏著,並把後面的 空間用作儲物室。燈箱上的海報 以自然、城市、人和機器為主 題,帶出它們相互的關係。 (Left page) The only column in the room is surrounded by light boxes with posters themed by nature, city, man and machine. The space behind the column is retained for storage.

房間樓底只有2.2米,故此,設計 師把天花的亮度調暗,只在漆黑 一片的天花上點綴以星光般的小 燈泡;另一方面則在發光的玻璃 地台上加入了產品的圖像,製造 出強烈的視覺效果,好把人們的 視線引到地面上。 另一面牆身舖蓋了鋁板,其垂直 條紋能夠把空間「拉高」;後置 的燈光通過鋁板上的橢圓形洞透 射出來。沿牆邊地台上,一條散 發著藍光的線條延伸至房間盡頭 的鏡子前,帶出透視感之餘,鏡 面亦加強了展示室的縱深度。而 藍色,正是公司品牌的主色。

纖幼的光柱上放了一部無線數碼相機,相機連接著打印 機,顧客可以即場拍照並取回相片。 The wireless digital camera atop the light tube is connected to a printer. Customers can get their photos right after they take pictures in the room.

為了配合公司的高科技產品,設計師用了較 cyber的表現手法,其中,近門口的銀色圓 柱包含所有視聽系統的按鈕;它半沉於架空 的發光強化玻璃地板,仿如在太空艙裡自 升出來的控制台。 展示室主要用來介紹上海的「方案中心」中 之大型設備,所以展示室內沒有「實質的」 貨品,單靠配套設施如屏幕和電視來投射/ 播放產品影像,加上可連線到「方案中心」 的電腦便可。這樣,人們只需要更新軟件, 而不需要轉換展品,方便、高效,而且空 間無需大,成為富彈 及國際 的嶄新陳列方 式。

The advancement of telecommunication technology makes virtual display possible in a modern showroom. With images being transmitted, visitors can 'see' the products thousand miles away. Here is one such showroom at the Hewlett-Packard office in Chengdu, China. The original computer room was transformed into a Demo Room with one full height glass window blocked for the purpose of image projection. In this small enclosed space, designer Arthur Chan created a space capsule environment by using different materials on the ceiling, the floor and the walls. The 2.2m high ceiling is painted in dark colour decorated with pin lights scattering like stars in the sky. 1 2

為一片橙色主導的空間注入展望 未來的清新,設計師巧妙地融合 色調、物料和科技配套,在運作 中的Orange客戶服務及維修中心 內開闢出一個為迎接3G年代而設 的展覽及會議空間。 這兩個空間合共1,200 平方呎, 約佔整個客戶服務中心總面積的 三份之一。透過設計師安排的獨 立入口,在空間佈局上既能給予 進入展示室的顧客一種與別不同 的優越感,也可以表現對展示室 內陳列產品之重視。 打開入口大門後便呈現出一個簡 約的展示室。由於室內沒有擺放 不必要的傢具,所以在射燈的強 調下更能突出推廣中的最新通訊 科技產品。另外,設計師加入不 鋼和玻璃面板作牆身,這兩種 物料反映影像的特 能在加強室內 空間感的同時,融入品牌主色調 之中,為本來活潑的橙色注入了 一點時代感。牆上選用等離子顯 示屏作展示,其輕巧的設計令室 內環境顯得現代化。

通過展示室後可以進入 一個能容納五十多人的 演講和會議空間。在這 個項目的功能上而言, 會議室與展示室雖然同 等重要,但展示室著重 的是推廣中的產品,而 會議室內則著重參與演 說和會議的人。所以會 議室內採用白色作為牆 身主色,而供與會人仕 使用的坐位便用上較能 特出客戶品牌的兩種橙 色。一如其他的會議 室,坐椅還是一行一行 的排開,但採用了兩種 橙色後便達到在簡單的 佈置中加強空間層次感 的效果。

整體而言,這個項目是 O r a n g e在步進3G年代 前,為其品牌的室內空 間加入新元素的一個嘗 試。所以設計師便在沒 有偏離以往的空間設計 和品牌形像的前題下, 成功地以簡單的手法為 Orange注入高科技而不 超越現實的清新,作為 對未來新通訊年代之準 備。

牆上選用等離子顯示屏來展示產 品,其輕巧的設計令室內環境顯 得現代化。 The slim design of the plasma displays on the wall further enhances the modernity of the space.

As a preparation for the coming of 3G era, an exhibition space and a conference room were needed in the currently operating Orange customer service and maintenance centre. Through the intelligent manipulation of colour, materiality and technology, the designer introduced a freshness of future vision into the "Orange" space. The two spaces measure more than 1,200 sq ft, taking up 1/3 of the total area of the customer service centre. For better spatial definition, the new area is accessed through an independent entrance. Apart from granting the users with a sense of superiority, this arrangement also pays recognition to the displayed products in the exhibition space. Customers will first confront a concise and minimalistic showroom after passing through the entrance. Without a piece of unnecessary furniture in the room, the latest communication products become more prominent under the emphasis of the spotlights. To create a spacious feeling, the designer added stainless steel and glass panels together with their semi-reflective property onto the walls. As their materiality fuses perfectly into the theme colour of the brand, a sense of freshness is brought to the lively orange. In addition, the slim design of the plasma displays on the wall further enhances the modernity of the space.

After the exhibition area, one enters into a conference room which can accommodate more than 50 people. Although functionally, the two spaces in this project enjoy equal importance; the exhibition area emphasizes on the promoted products, while the conference room pays more attention to the users of the room. Elaborating this into the design, white is chosen as main wall colour, and two tones of orange which represent the brand are used on the seats as an accent. When aligning these seats into rows to form a simple setting for a conference, the two orange tones multiply and render impressive layering effect in space. For Orange, this project is a trial to add new elements to their interior spaces before entering the 3G era. So without deviating from previous interior spatial concepts and brand image, the designer demonstrated simple techniques to introduce a fresh sense of "hi-tech" into "Orange" spaces as a preparation for the next communication era.

Atelier Pacific Ltd為富豪汽車設計的香港新展廳位於雲集眾多頂尖汽 車陳列室的灣仔區,佔地5,800平方呎。這個地方以前是銀行大樓,除 了入口就沒有別的窗戶,而且室內地面比街外高1.2米,這些都給設計 師帶來了挑戰。為了創造一個合適的環境,大的改建工程是必要的。 設計師將主立面的牆身拆除,從而將室內空間盡量展現到外面,同時 把陳列室內部改造成一個大型開放空間,提供很大的自由度讓客戶隨 意去擺放和展示其汽車產品。 設計師採用簡樸的材料並注重細節,加上白色的粉飾和定製的傢具, 使得陳列室具備一種北歐的風格,也可以說是對來自瑞典的Volvo生活 方式的另一種表章。 此外,陳列室還特別加入了配套設施,包括小網吧、咖啡吧、玻璃圍 成的會議室和兒童活 區,讓人感覺到這裡並不僅僅是一個汽車陳列 室。

Taikoo Motors, representing Volvo in Hong Kong, requested Atelier Pacific's assistance in completing the vision set out in the Volvo corporate environment guidelines to create a new showroom for Hong Kong. Located amongst all of the prime car showrooms in Wanchai, the 5,800 sq-ft former banking hall posed a number of challenges in its transformation. Windowless, except for the entry, and raised 1.2m above the street, major restructuring was required to create a suitable environment. By removing the existing facade along the two primary sides of the space, maximum exposure for the showroom was created with the interior converted into a large open plan in which cars can be freely arranged for display. Simple materials and detailing, a white colour scheme and the custom designed furniture all contribute to the "Scandinavian" style of the space, all of which supports the presentation of the Volvo lifestyle as promoted by Sweden. "Extra" amenities including an internet corner, coffee bar, glass enclosed meeting rooms and a children's area, all contribute to the sense of this being more than just a car showroom. 客戶Client Taikoo Motors 總承辦商Main Contractor Pat Davie Ltd 設施顧問Services Consultants Ferrier Chan & Partners 鋪地Flooring - Oak mosaic parquet, grey stone, high pressure laminate floor, carpet Louis de Poortere, rubber flooring 外牆External Facade - Clear glass frameless shop front with stainless steel 攝影Photography Andrew Loiterton atelier pacific ltd
