Barefoot Studios

Quarta & Armando‘s design for Shanghai portrait studio Barefoot divides the space into distinct working and reception areas with a parete attrezzata (equipped wall unit).

This wall simultaneously facilitates all of the studio’s functions, housing within its girth such diverse elements as storage space, changing rooms, pantry, reception and office.

CasaCasa Sales Office

Dayun designed this sales office for a new housing development.

Its two storeys contain the sales office, administrative offices, lounge and cafe areas. On the upper level an open terrace gives access to gallery space and a roof garden.

While overall form is rectilinear, the main elevation is intersected by an arched concrete shell structure with perforated alloy louvre, while on the reverse side an irregular array of variously proportioned windows break up the largest section of wall and provide light to corridors and stairwells on the interior.
