From the architects: Hangzhou based interior practice Yebin Design has designed aneye-catching retail space in the fastest developing city Shenzhen, China. Set against a backdrop of old residential buildings of the 1990s, Conemoting Market is the first select shop with cafe and bar in this area.
After renovation, the basement of five meters high serves as a retail space displaying self-owned brand clothesand selected products and the ground floor serves as cafe in the daytime and bar in the evening. The transparent orange and redtempered glassesdivide the dining area, building a psychedelic visual effect, just like a 4D maze of market. The warm colours are highlighted by the contrast with the cold silver façade, making it standing out in the old community.
A tall giraffe installation stands through both the floors. Its cute face can be seen in the café and its feet are in the underground floor. The entire retail space is wrapped bymetallic silver, creating an upscale industrial art atmosphere. All the finishes and products such as pipes and huge hand-like chair are custom made.

Nowadays, stores are no longer just displaying and selling goods, they are online physical space.In Conemoting Market, display and counter sales can already be handled as a supplementary function of the online stores. It is a physical space created for the online space, where the self-expression desire from the young generation can be released, the passion and inclusiveness of the old city community is ignited, meanwhile, it reflects the progress of the diversification of commercial ecology in Chinese cities.
