Text description provided by the architects. Matsu flagship store rented a 3 storey space in a high-rise residential in downtown Shanghai, it needs a façade which can isolate the building from noise but invite the sun light; also the facade has to be removed after the expiry of rent; meanwhile the client wishes the building could stand out from the chaotic urban environment --- thus we have the idea of »the Furniture store in ginkgo forest »: the sun piercing through the aluminium ginkgo leaves creates an atmosphere of serenity. Ginkgo tree is one of the most valuable and elegant trees, which fits Matsu corporate vision in pursuit of quality. This concept runs through the exterior and interior as a clue: for example the leaves which cut down from the façade are embedded in the cement floor after an acid treatment to create a scene of Fall.
