[Woven into the Textile Cultural Hub]
Type: Interior | Retail
Location: The Mills, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong
Client: St. James’ Settlement
Area: 150 sm
The second branch of Greenladies x Greenlittle has opened in The Mills, an art and cultural hub located in Tsuen Wan. The multi-facility destination is a revitalization project by Nan Fung Group completed in 2018, transforming the textile factories into a cultural complex, co-working space and start-up hub dedicated for fashion and textile industry.
Echoing the theme of The Mills, light-weighted and pastel coloured fabric were adopted as the shopfront design, where the themes of textile and secondhand fashion are woven into the philosophy of both The Mills and Green Ladies: to reuse and restyle the secondhand fashion. Inside, the 150sm store was designed to reused some of the display boxes, wooden shelves and table from the other closed branches. A huge benefit has been achieved from the flexibly designed interior fixtures since the beginning of our previous projects with this Client.
The private area of the consignment room and staff room were closed from public, shoppers can still peek inside from the windows in the corridor. The branding statement of the company “Reuse, Restyle, Empowerment” are clearly shown on the wall. Piles of clothes were stack up by the window frame, referencing the floating box display fills with clothes in the Wan Chai flagship store, as a new approach to show the over-consuming problem in an artistic way.
