TRU architects generates the form of its 0914 flagship store to recall the image of a village with small stacked houses carved in a box. the projects expresses a contrast between a pure white box and brick houses in form, color and texture enhancing the effect of engraving. the engraved village is reversed in the interior space to form extruded small gabled houses for shops and artist studios. on the underground level, the concept of multi-level plaza is introduced as a place where craftsmen and designers can stay together with customers and visitors. the brick staircase leading to the plaza is planned as a runway for fashion shows. the rooftop is designed as a villa elevated above the water in a hidden garden. the two-leveled rooftop area is filled with shallow water and silver grass.
