Beijing-based architecture studio RAMOPRIMO has used large steel curved walls to highlight garments in the interior of this fashion and event store in Shenyang, China.

Named TGY Multi-Brand Fashion and Event Store, the 600-square-metre store pushes the boundaries of a traditional store and acts as a meeting place for fashion lovers, which will inspire people to talk about lifestyle, creatives to organize events and photographers to host their photo shootings.

The key component of the store is its fluid metallic interior which allow visitors to circulate around these walls, while allowing visitors to taste different sections of the interior with different design.

The store contains several main funtions in the same space: curated shop, flexible event area, temporary exhibition where guest designers can show their new fashion collections, a cafe’, beauty center and flower shop. 

The space is also meant to change throughout time offering its customers an ever-changing experience, slightly different from visit to visit.

"Providing a physical shape for this vibrant and changing program wasn’t an easy task," said RAMOPRIMO. 

"According to the project’s brief, design should surprise, be cozy, be fashion, be classical and be flexible at the same time, eye-catching to attract a wider audience of customers with different interests and taste."

To embrace all those needs, the architects created the main concept with a dynamic fluid space based on the idea of movement, with a layout characterized by the popping-up of many different elements along the path.

They used steel curved walls enveloping the space like large folded metallic fabric. The architect chose metal as the main material for the store for its quality to work as a neutral but reacting background. It will actively interact with each new exhibition by reflecting shapes and colors of all clothes and temporary design settings.

The floor, made of large rectangular ceramic tiles with satin metallic finishing separated by continuous square glossy steel profiles, is reflecting the widespread lighting net on ceiling adding a diffuse sense of vibrancy.

A rotating room in the entrance can serve as flexible stage for exhibiting young Chinese fashion designers. In the café area, a huge map of Shenyang city on lenticular panels will constantly change color according to the movements of viewers.

An arched promenade is connecting the two main areas – the shop and the café – on the opposite sides of the store, providing a space for runway and inviting customers to reach the event space and the other functional corners.
