This Feng Shui-inspired project seeks to offer a different bookstore experience to expand readers’ knowledge of Chinese culture, literature and dialects. Housed in two three-storey shop units, the bookstore offers a variety of timeless and welcoming spaces, including an event room, office space and in-house cafés at each floor.
The interior is dominated by warm textures, rich wood tones and subtle earthy shades, with touches of brass and reflective surfaces selectively placed to enhance the overall ambience.
