the fangsuo bookstore occupies a two-story space in the qingdao mixc shopping mall. we bring in a ramp which naturally connects the different levels and introduce a free rambling experience. the curvature design theme permeates the space, dissolving the rigid grid layout of the shopping mall.
the ground floor opens to the city, leading to a oval sunken plaza on the lower ground level. the change of natural light can be sensed at every corner. the boundary of the bookstore is defined by slightly curved showcases and ground-to-ceiling bookshelves, encompassing various functions such as cafe, aesthetic zone, fashion shop and lecture space.
