SUNYAT：In the noisy and bustling world, the human touch of the city is diluted by the constant hustle and bustle. The distance between people is getting farther and farther apart.
If there is a space where time can be extended and width can be expanded, it can bring neighbors together and add color to the community, make reading a habit, and turn the bookstore into a spiritual relay station.
From libraries and bookstores to urban bookstores, the service mode and reading philosophy have changed, but the warmth and depth of cultural services remain the same. As a new type of public cultural space, the “small but beautiful” urban bookstore is becoming a new trend in refined communities, a new highlight of cultural life.
This time, Sunyat was invited to reactivate a previously abandoned ground-floor space on Xingle Road, transforming it into a multi-functional urban bookstore that includes a city living room, public book house, and boutique coffee, driving the cultural and commercial atmosphere of the entire area and injecting new vitality into the community.
#虹桥国际社区生活新提案# New Proposal for Life in Hongqiao International Community
This project is located on Xingle Road in the core area of Huacao Town, Minhang District, Shanghai. This area is an important part of the Hongqiao Urban Sub-center in Shanghai’s 2035 overall plan, adjacent to the Hongqiao Business District and the Shanghai Exhibition Center. There are many high-end residential areas around and it is close to the Shanghai American School.

The “14th Five-Year Plan” for the Hongqiao International Open Hub Central Business District proposes to promote the construction of a new generation of international communities, create a well-functioning quality living circle, and build a high-quality livable and business-friendly international community. However, Xingle Road is currently lacking in vitality, and the outdated facilities on the street seem incompatible with the positioning of the international fashion district of the Hongqiao Business District, and urgently need to be upgraded and renovated.

▽设计范围 Design scope
How can we reactivate the poorly-performing ground-floor businesses, make the streets more interesting and attractive public spaces, and inject new vitality into the area?
This time, the architects of Sunyat have proposed a new proposal for community life scenes by integrating keywords such as “business, leisure, openness, community, and affinity”. By introducing a city library into the community, we can inject new value into the area, enhance the regional cultural and commercial atmosphere, create more public leisure space and social opportunities for the city, and form a brand-new interactive living space on the urban interface.
▽项目改造前后 Before and after project transformation
#引领街区型商业更新新范式# Leading a New Paradigm for Neighborhood Commercial Renewal
As a pilot project for regional block renewal, this renovation aims to create a new iconic facade, break space constraints, integrate multiple functions, create a more experiential and sustainable new public cultural space for the community with multiple possibilities and lead a new paradigm for block-type business renewal.
#01 家门口的心灵驿站 A Soulful Oasis at Your Doorstep
Personalized storefront signage activates neighborhood vitality
A book can warm a person’s heart, and a bookstore can warm an entire city. Outside the bookstore is the bustling city, while inside is a quiet space for readers. When reading becomes a habit, the bookstore becomes a station for the soul.
▽店招设计以“心灵驿站”为概念 Shop recruitment design to the “spiritual station” as the concept
As one of the most vibrant and dynamic elements of the urban street interface and building façade, storefront signage is an important part of the urban street’s “fireworks” atmosphere. The design of this bookstore signage takes the concept of a “soul station”, creating a dynamic urban landscape reminiscent of an electrocardiogram on the façade, breaking the inherent “static, focused, and solidified” stereotypes of traditional bookstore spaces.
▽立面模型及材料使用示意图 Elevation model and material usage diagram
The design divides the façade into segments resembling an electrocardiogram using simulated line shapes. The upper part of the façade uses a light gray textured coating, while the lower part uses natural and weather-resistant wood materials, which are interlocked to form a “heart-pumping signal” that jumps like an electrocardiogram. The design cleverly combines light strips with the material seal, avoiding a long and dull facade, greatly improving the bookstore’s recognition, and conveying a sense of warmth and affinity to people.

#02 一种新的阅读方式 A new way of reading
an openable facade that interacts with the street
The relationship between people and books is increasingly estranged. We hope that this space can increase encounters between people and books, as well as between people, to make people have new insights into books. Therefore, the architect opened up the facade to allow the interior and exterior spaces to interpenetrate, creating a relaxed and vibrant seating area.
▽室内和室外空间相互渗透 Indoor and outdoor Spaces permeate each other
The design introduces diagonal lines to divide and reconstruct the original window openings, echoing the “electrocardiogram” and breaking the hard boundary between the interior and exterior through large glass windows. It increases interactivity and visual touch and connection, and combines window openings with a leisure seating area. Through the design of the outer contour of the “house”, it creates a warm atmosphere of the “city living room”.

▽“屋”形外轮廓窗洞与可开启立面 “House” – shaped exterior profile window holes with open facades
Through the interactive and openable facade design with the street, a new living interaction space is formed in the urban interface. Whether it is surrounding residents or visiting tourists, they can stop and rest here, creating more public leisure space and social opportunities. It also provides residents with a new way of life based on “reading”, where they can read the city and pursue poetry and distance in the name of reading.

#03 社区生活引力场 a community life gravity field
A hybrid aesthetic cultural and creative space
As a new type of service carrier for nationwide reading, the emergence of urban libraries has greatly expanded the coverage of public cultural services and bridged the “last mile” of public reading services, making them the warmest cultural landmarks in the city.
▽打造有温度的文化地标 Create a cultural landmark with temperature
The Xingle Road Urban Library uses books as a medium to accommodate multiple functions, including urban living room, creative area, urban corridor, children’s reading area, private reading area, and cafe, with a warm and natural color scheme of water green, light beige, and bright orange. By combining multiple formats in a new context, it creates a comprehensive cultural and artistic space with reading as its soul, and is open to residents for free.
▽功能布局 Function layout
作为新一代的国际化未来书屋，幸乐路城市书屋兼顾国际社区外籍人士以及国际学生的阅读需求，引进多种类进口版图书、双语图书。打造“先行读书会”“It’s Book O’Clock/正是书时”双语沙龙，为读者提供不同层次、不同领域的文化活动。
As a new generation of international future libraries, the Xingle Road Urban Library caters to the reading needs of foreign residents and international students in the international community, introducing various imported and bilingual books. It also creates bilingual salons such as the “First Reader Society” and “It’s Book O’Clock” to provide readers with cultural activities of different levels and fields.
▽城市长廊 Urban corridor
▽阅览区 Reading area
▽城市客厅 Urban living room
In the future, the library will invite Chinese and foreign readers in the surrounding areas to share their reading experiences in the form of reader salons, and regularly hold theme exhibitions on Shanghai culture, science popularization, fashion trends, art appreciation, etc., so that citizens can enjoy public spaces and public reading services with knowledge, warmth, and passion at their doorstep.
▽儿童阅览区 Children’s reading area
▽咖啡厅 Coffee shop
The facade transformation of the Xingle Road Urban Library makes full use of idle and transitional public space resources in the block, revitalizing stock space and injecting cultural elements, radiating and driving the transformation of the block’s positioning, leading a new lifestyle. This high utilization transformation model will lead the future of block-based commercial renewal and become a driving force for the development of dynamic cities.
