sybarite and gentle monster curate an experiential dichotomy between SKP-S and the beijing streets outside to create an immediate atmospheric shift. each of the store’s four levels is designed with its own unique identity and stylized ecosystem to offer the visitor an otherworldly universe, achieved through a careful palette of materials, lighting, robotics, and art installations.
sybarite and gentle monster design each level of the new SKP-S beijing store with its own artfully futuristic atmosphere. the ground floor is dark and moody with a slick, black opacity running through all the surface treatments and focal lighting. the second floor changes the tempo with a bright, light-flooded environment, brutalist architectural detailing, and art installations populating the circulation spaces.
the third floor of SKP-S is a curated, fantasy interpretation of life on planet mars. the visitor enters this space by way of a tunnel clad in a backdrop of LED screens displaying planetary landscapes. finally, the basement floor includes twenty-four dioramas, housing the restaurant concessions. each of these will have their own stylised environment and a diverse range of materiality, while the clean terrazzo walls and floors serve to contrast the brutalist building and exposed structure.
