Zhen Fund

A project that takes advantage of immersive urban views while also conveying a sense of the significance and dynamism of the client's work and the tremendous joy and enthusiasm that is so characteristic of this company. We were asked to create a fairly typical office fit out for a prominent venture capital firm in Beijing. Slightly unusual were the very significant number of conference rooms of all sizes requested, as well as the "XL" room with seating for up to 100. Given the U-shaped space we had to work with it was clear that the challenge would be to avoid interminable and dull corridors. Further, with the firm known for its investments not only in tech startups but also in visionary new consumer products, the space needed to refle... More

The renovation transformed the existing 3 story 865 square meter space into an airy, fun, and colorful baby retail store. In visioning session, we had difficulty in locating the store because of all similar cold structures in the district. The store building was very uninviting in external appearance and gloomy within. The concept of the design was based on capturing the attention of visitors. Therefore we chose a warm and bright color for the exterior facade. Caption Caption Passersby young and old may feel pull, starting with the vibrant yellow color of the exterior. The continuous yellow color moves through all floors acting as the guide for new customers and ends in a color splash  in the lower ground level.Whitewashed w... More

Sushi restaurant

What was the brief? Our client sought to create an interior that catered to the local market and allowed the easy transit of delivery services like Uber Eats. Horacio Virissimo What were the key challenges? Our concept for this japanese food restaurant wanted to connect with traditional Japanese design elements without seeming thematic. Using clear cherry colored wood and a bi-chromatic color palette connects us with traditional tatami interiors and rice paper sliding doors. The mirrors evoke antique trains from the past and create visual amplitude with the customers. Horacio Virissimo What materials did you choose and why? We chose cherry colored wood by PROTEAK mixed with natural pine wood to bring warmth into the interio... More

VSB Wine Cellar

Located in the town of Arandas, Jalisco, the project is located within an existing commercial area dedicated to the sale of wines and spirits. The project consisted of an extension to an existing residual space, which was used as just a general storage space. We decided to expand the existing area from 30m2 to 70m2, extruding the facade on par with the neighbors. This divided the space in two, a space under the existing slab that functions as an exclusive wine cellar and a double-height space that serves as the showroom and private bar area. Our clients sought to create a space to house their new wine catalog and display exclusive bottles, our solution was to merge the liquor sales program with a private bar area. This will create a synerg... More
