Apparently, this is a conventional shop house structure. Of course every commercial aspects count in this project; low budget, short construction time, simple structure yet being attractive along the road side. But we challenge ourselves more in terms of urbanistic issue, "the pedestrian". It means that within the same budget constrain, how such a conventional building type can offer a better lively environment at the street level, how to make a good transitional space from the street to the building. So we propose the owner to allocate quite a budget portion at ground level structure and leave the clean structure above as a naked facade.
