Bo Space

Hangzhou Shi, China

WJ Design

Highly Commended by 2018 WAF & INSIDE awards


Hualien, China, 2019-01-09 -

Bo Space is a mixed commercial space including restaurant and bar (Chin-Chin), exhibition space, flower shop, fashion studio. It is divided into multiple uses for different people and brands. WJ Design is responsible for the whole interior design.

It is located in HE Park where used to be an old industry site and now a culture & innovation gathering place in Xixi Wetland in Hangzhou. In the designer's view, the city is expanding way to fast that we are losing the old imprint of our city while we are losing our culture as well. Buildings are getting old, but we can keep its vitality through a design and transformation. Bo Space is not just a restaurant bar but also a complex space. It does not only provide people a place to stay but also presents a way of living. People can find out what they really like here, even if it is just a ray of sunshine, a picture show, a good meal, a slow pace, or a way back to life.
 
Along with the imprint of the old factory building, you will find a new space behind the long corridor. The original sunken area is reserved and transformed into a small outdoor yard. 
 
Regarding the indoor design, we removed the walls facing the sunken yard so the views are wider. We also use an atrium to make a connection between indoor & outdoor space.
 
Pass through the spacious restaurant and bar, along the black spiral staircase to the second floor, where we will see some fashion designers’ shops and a big empty space which can be used for art or fashion exhibitions in the future. The terrace extends from the corridor will become a great leisure area in summer.
 
From the point of view of commercial function, BO Space is a composite format but from the design point of view, we hope it will become a place for cultural preservation.

His Concept
 
In the current diversified architectural design, modern buildings are more aggressive, without the presentation of the initial aesthetic feeling of a building. Leo believes that architecture is recognized by time and memory. The aesthetics of the Orientals pay more attention to the initial natural beauty expressed by things themselves rather than the expression of their forms, and so are buildings. When we want to express its original beauty, we need to think about the true meaning of architecture for us, and see the truth of the object. The concept "less is more" is about more discovery less artificial design.
