Pie Bird continues its expertise in American style pies with a second location in Jing’an Kerry Center, Shanghai. Where the first shop was inspired by American vintage style, this shop is a combination of elements from the previous shop and features loosely based on the traditional American diner.
As the site was an open space in the center of the mall, full walls were not allowed. To create privacy, a low ribbed wood wall was built to demarcate the perimeter and give the customer a sense of closure. Emphasis was focused on the vaulted ceiling by creating a strong ribbed gesture, which was inspired by the edge of traditional pie crust. The ceiling helps focus attention in the open space and provide comfort while in the space.
