With the help of LineHouse, a warehouse was successfully transformed into a shop called Factory Five Jingan or Factory 5. Located in Shanghai, China, the shop was designed on a 150 square meter site and finished in 2014.

Counter for Customers and Staffs
Looking at the bar’s design, it reveals 150 by 150 mm I-beams fixed horizontally between the existing metal columns. The I-beams act as counters for staff and customers.
Meanwhile, to build up the feel of the old shop, OSB and reclaimed wood from the demolition sites in Shanghai was used for cabinetry and table tops.
A Clear Epoxy
A Clear epoxy covers the existing concrete floor in the shop.
Similar to the bar design, the mezzanine displays 150 by 150mm I-beams.
The mezzanine occupies a double height industrial warehouse space. The mezzanine is used to accommodate private office space.
