The building strategy was to retain all of the main structural components while removing unnecessary walls and floor slabs. Thus reveals the muscle; the beams and columns of the existing structure which then enhanced its function by inserting a couple of boxes at the upper level to contain the administration office and a meeting room while the shop itself take place on the freed-up space on the ground floor. The space created is a play of solid-void-solid expression behind a plain two storey height glass wall to contrast its appearance with the less glassy of the surrounding building

Floor Plan

The circulation bridge that connects the two boxes at the upper level and the light steel -concrete stairs with iron tube railing are made obvious from any spot of the building to show coexistence between the retail space below and the working space above. The bridge that punches through the meeting box above goes crossing the inner garden to the back building block with transparent glass floor and railing minimizing solid expression around the precious tree.

The existing attic transformed into a living room for the board of directors that also connected to a garden on the roof of the back building block. This garden feels connected to the lower one by the tall tree below that reaches up to the top floor

The material used are arranged by non-wood scheme to keep the building as the canvas for any object placed inside and keep the wood scheme only on the furniture
