Jato Design was tasked with transforming a traditional bookstore into a dynamic, multi-use space – to be not only a shopping mall but also a cultural hub for book-inspired events and more.
Included a 24-hour cage area that features an angular, geometric book shelving system, as well as a ceiling inspired by the countless pages of book.
The centrepice is the “hero” space where visitors move to a lighter-toned timber-putfitted environment enhanced with dramatic designs. Lantern-like cocoons hang from the ceiling while stairways serve as communal spaces that encourage visitors to linger and read while sitting on the steps; it can also be transformed into a space for book-oriented events for large groups.
