INDIVIDUAL PROJECT

REIMAGINATION: LIBRARY CAFE OF A DESIGN SCHOOL

DECEMBER 2016, SHANGHAI

What are the design students' expectations of a library cafe?

Library Cafe Renewal is a project from a senior year course Interior Design 4. In the project, I tried to dig into their needs during the study at a fashion school and see how this cafe can better meet the expectations. As a cafe in the university library, I also wanted to make sure this location benefits the students.​

设计专业学生对一家图书馆咖啡有什么样的期待?

这个问题来自本科四年级的室内设计项目。在这个项目试图发掘这所设计学院的学生们对于一家咖啡店的需求,并且思考这家咖啡馆的改良方式。同时这家咖啡馆的地理位置(位于校图书馆中)能够如何提升学生对图书馆的使用感受也应该被纳入设计项目的考虑范围中。

Since it is a limited site, the flexibility of the interior is emphasized. Fabrics are introduced to create removable walls for higher efficiency. 

为了让有限的场地满足尽可能多的空间需求,空间的灵活性显得十分重要,因此空间中部分区域有意识地采用了可活动的织物面料来分隔空间,以达到高效使用的目的。

expected activities 

学生对空间活动的需求

In the process of spatial design, I got inspired by various shapes of books so I explored the connections between them and student activities. The layout is mainly surrounding the multi-functional box that can be open as well as close under different conditions. As a cafe for design students in the school, it provides display cabinets and stands to organize small exhibitions among students. 

在咖啡馆的空间设计中,书的不同形态和空间形态之间的联系被发现并组织起来。可敞开可闭合的活动区区被安排在空间中央作为最主要的功能场所,它承载了绝大部分功能,其余的功能围绕这个盒子展开。同时作为设计专业学生活动的场所,空间中提供了展示的墙面及柜台以提供举办小型展览的可能。
