in terms of design, shanghai based prism design and office coastline feature a large and orange staircase that crosses the store diagonally. this clarifies the difference in height between the ground floor and the upper floor. to achieve the ‘urban athletics’ concept given to the ‘runner camp’ project, the design team applied industrial materials found in the region such as metal and concrete, which result being efficient sound absorbing and heat insulating materials.
