ann demeulemeester shop by mass studies

mass studies is a korean based architecture firm that was founded in 2003 by minsuk cho in seoul. the studio recently finished the design of shop for fashion retailer ann demeulemeester. the building consists of four levels, the shop, a multi-store and restaurant on the top floors. the project’s facade is made from a geo-textile planted with herbaceous perennials to form a living wall. the greenery is carried into the shop, incorporating nature whenever possible. the studio focuses on issues involving density and living in urban korean areas. the shop’s location is in a residential neighborhood that is evolving into a shopping district.
