Project Description

Item Survey:
This century-old building in Shanghai had an Art Deco-influenced style, and the team brought in some contemporary Italian cultural elements. The reinvented house becomes a space where the past meets the future. It offers richer and more diverse and open perspectives on Aged garden villa in the current context.
Design Description:
The house consists of a two-story main building and a three-story annex behind the main building. NOTHING STUDIO divides the space into an outer area and an inner area according to its functionality. This meets Attila's needs in terms of its branding strategy and integrated business.
At the entrance of the house, a brick wall is connected to a traditional Chinese-style courtyard wall made of red and grey bricks. Between the entrance and the door of the first floor is a patio-like yard paved with parquet marble in a radial pattern.
Design Innovation:
The facade of the main building is characterized by large windows and glass doors. Numerous hardwood frames collected during demolition were reused for it. The combination of exquisite crafts in Chinese constructions and the Art Deco style of the marble floor provides the vintage feel of an old Sha
