The site is located in a li-long – a typical late 19th century Shanghai neighborhood characterized by the laneways that connect the history, buildings, inhabitants and gossips within.
Over the years, this Wintersweet witnessed the passage of time while surviving numerous abuses and a lack of maintenance. To protect it and keep it secret, Lukstudio create a buffer to the laneways, starting with a large glazed door framed in a stainless steel lined porch, followed by a series of spaces that includes a foyer gallery, utility rooms and pantry.
