Every day we see new stores being built, however, as many numerous materials are used, they are also meant to be disposed. Our idea was to put a spotlight on the materials that are usually hidden and use the raw materials as is. The representative material we used was the “LGS (Lightweight Gauge Steel)”. Normal steps of construction processes were reduced, resulting in both time and cost efficiency; they can be easily disassembled, hence completely reusable / recyclable for its next journey, which are both beneficial for the clients and for the environment. Rather than decorating space with layers of material we are bound to destroy, our concept is to simply use just the first layer and seek the beauty that lies beneath what we see.
