Designed with the concept of superimposed and layered fluid fabrics, the regional office of Shiatzy is an embodiment of the link between fashion design and architecture. Composed of a series of vertical layers, the building is organized as fluid movements like layered fabrics between the different functional zones. The vertical walls run the length of the headquarter building, organizing the functional layout and providing shared facilities within the folds and juxtaposition of these vertical undulations. The office complex would include administrative offices, design studios, conference rooms, fabrication ateliers, showroom, hall – reception, exhibit spaces, and staff restaurant-kitchen facilities.
