MDO transformed an old home into a retail space, seamlessly tucking away a flower shop in the back. Serving as a prime example of conceptual retail, this floral shop give off the aesthetic of an art gallery. Minimalist and imaginative, the whimsical space showcases some of the floral designs in a unique manner.
The space is located at the back of the old house, creating the illusion of a 'secret garden' and further engaging the consumer. It's located in the anfu lu neighborhood of shanghai, which has become popularized for its youthful storefronts, good restaurants and stylish cafes. What's even more exciting is that at street access is a small window that reveals the space. This window was kept from the original facade of the house, and dates back to a time when people could purchase items through it.
