The original building is a one-story extension at the corner of two old-fashioned residential buildings. The gross floor area is 50 square meters. We hope to reflect the spirit of rebellion from both the exterior and the interior. Filling a small space to the brim, no design is accidental. We retained the original wall, and built a new volume from the inside as the store. Visually, the building itself manifests as a growing force and presents as if an instantaneous state for when it reaches the surrounding wall. It dialogues with its surroundings playing a role as a harmonious conflict.
