Text description provided by the architects. TAP is a creative handicraft brand in Saigon, Vietnam. After four years of establishment and development, this brand has set up not only a decent space to display their stunning products to customers but also a concept store to introduce some other outstanding local brands.
TAP is one of the most proactive pioneer that making effort to enhance the inner power of Vietnam local brand community. The existing site is an old house with a small yard with a total area of about 80m2.
We approach the project by shaping the main traffic flow throughout the display area. The product experience journey will be guided in a maze with the beginning at the entrance and the end point is a yard covered with white sand.
We are not allowed to interfere with existing floors and walls so lightweight structures and unburnt tile flooring placed directly on the existing floor is the solution of choice. Sawadeesign desires to bring a simple, light and coarse experience space in this project.
