Today we will explore a design project for an Hermès store, located at the crossroads of Ice Street House and Road Greetings, Hong Kong. It was created by the Parisian architecture and design agencyRDAI.

The design team, led by Denis Montel, created an architectural project influenced by the main lines of the local architecture. The modern style of the building highlights the copper-colored anodized aluminum façade that shows the rhythm and verticality of bamboo as a material.

The interior decoration was based on materials like lacquered wood, leather, stucco, marble, and woven metal and on a palette of warm colors. The spaces are subdivided by some champagne-colored woven metal pieces. On the floor, we have two different textures, mosaic on the ground floor and bamboo parquet on the rest of the places. However, you can still find some floor rugs, covered in the pattern of bamboo fibers, in certain spots of the shop.

To bring in even more light, the corner of the building has been hollowed out at both ground floor and mezzanine level (the first floor). This hollow space captures and diffuses the light. On the upper level, it gives way to a balcony from which the city, its skyscrapers and its double-decker tram can be admired.

The extensive use of glass on both façades suffuses the store with golden light. Filtered by a forest of bamboo in the heart of the urban jungle, it allows a sophisticated nature to regain its rights and powers.
