The Guiyang Zhongshue Bookstore by X+Living boasts a one-of-a-kind, dynamic bookstore design that embraces reflective details and optical illusions that appear to repeat endlessly. While the bookstore is situated in a commercial plaza, it gives people the chance to step into what feels like another world on the inside.
The design of the interior space draws inspiration from the natural world with elements that resemble caves, stalactites, mountains and water, encouraging visitors to tap into their inner adventurer and explore. Within the bookstore, there are spaces for consumers to have a cup of tea and enjoy quiet reading space. The dynamic bookstore also includes a dedicated area for children that's just as imaginative.
