THE JIAO LUO SHOP
BANDA STREET, SINGAPORE
Located in the heart of Chinatown, the space is unapologetically utilitarian with reused metal hanging frames, original tiles and raw partition boards which separate the unit from the provision shop next door.
Tables are formed from stacking raw plywood planks over traditional concrete hollow blocks. The linear arrangement of the tables and lighting accentuates the long and narrow space which terminates in a solid red painted wall which mirrors the gates at the entrance.
