The façade of the retail store that is situated in the substantial-conclusion rental making, Gaode Mansion, is a satisfied and friendly brilliant blue sq. that immediately appeals to interest.

The structure firm has worked with La Moitié before, so the link with that brand name came normally.

The second-floor consists of the pet healthcare facility and clinic where cleanliness is the most important necessity. But even there, in the common whiteness, the Space Odyssey-theme is palpable in the, muted colors, smoky metallic and abundance of lighting fixtures.

The two-amount place, while divided obviously into sections that different the several solutions, is linked by an open up atrium that gives the viewpoint from which one can truly recognize but a different factor of the House Odyssey topic, the rounded types of the project.

From the spiralling stairs to partitions, lights fixtures and home windows, every little thing is rounded. This also includes all corners as there are no sharp angles in BIBU, which of system is also very good for the guests, the pampered pets.

The in general color plan is muted white with forest eco-friendly and robin’s-egg blue as accents and with white tiles and dim wooden panels masking the floors.
