TIPS Fashion Store is located on the ground floor of an old French Mansion in The heart of the former French Concession of Shanghai. The preexistence of the historic residential environment drove the design. The house is protected as well as all the existing details inside. The Store is located in the former dining and living room of the house, which kept the original woodworks, moldings, tire places, wood beamsc. Our design had to be a contemporary contrast within that classical ambience, respecting the existing but drastically changing the appearance of the site.
