This stunning project, consisting of a flower shop, breathes simplicity, beauty, and elegance. It is located in Changshu, Jiansu, China, and covers a total ground area of 180 square meters distributed across two levels. It was designed by the architectural firm D+space design in 2017. Just by looking at its entrance, we are already able to imagine what awaits us in its interior. It is a space where white dominates all the details and elements that have been used, a place that is different from other shops in the area, with an air of freshness from the moment one steps inside.
The white door contrasts starkly against the red brick of its walls, creating a particularly striking and elegant effect. On the first level, a space for communication was created. There, the owners impart flower arranging classes, host meetings between friends, or simply allow visitors to come in and enjoy a cup of tea.
On the second level, in order to achieve a better visualization of the product, the designer created a space full of natural light, which seeps in through the windows. The mezzanine level holds the office space for the staff at Miss Sun. Although it has a limited space, it fulfills the needs of their daily work and provides a place to hold meetings.
The Anfrum Hair Salon is a project completed by Hidenori Tsuboi Architects in 2017, and covers a total ground area of little over 55 square meters. It is located in Uehonmachinishi, in the Chuo Ward of Osaka Prefecture, Japan. The hair salon is run by the business’s female owner, and is surrounded by many old wooden houses.
What’s so unique about this space is the fact that it is no ordinary hair salon – it is constructed in order to provide an individual, one on one experience to each and every customer. As such, the client wished for it to be designed in such a way that customers would feel free to walk around and enjoy each space, instead of simply sitting at the hair styling chair for the entire duration of their visit.
A large wooden table sits at the center of the space, providing customers a place to sit and wait while they read magazines, drink a cup of coffee, or engage in consultations with the hair stylist. The remainder of the space is designed with an open plan, and it is not subdivided by partitions or walls of any kind, providing the salon with an spacious aura of serenity.
Studio with a Modern Design Born From the Need for a Larger Space in Which to Work and Perform Day to Day Tasks

Welcome to mode:lina’s exquisite new studio, located in Poznan, Poland. It was self-designed by the Polish architectural firm in 2017, and is more specifically located in Jezyce, one of the administrative subdivisions of the city of Poznan.
The design and creation of a new office came from the need of a larger space in which to work and perform day to day tasks, as the studio’s old office, though a hit, had grown too small for the Polish architectural firm. As it stood, the move to a larger space also provided the studio with an opportunity to stretch their creative muscles and create something that better reflected their artistic identity.
The new studio is done in a sophisticated, minimalist style, making use of only matte black and white and the elegant effect that is so easily obtained when they are allowed to stand in stark contrast against one another. The only place where color is allowed free reign is in the conference room, which still has white walls and chairs and a long black table, but also has a shelf that runs the length of the entire wall, and upon which sit a number of creative magazines and other publications, their covers an ensemble of color.
