杭州书籍时尚艺术咖啡集合店 designed store Harbook+ in Hangzhou
Called Harbook, the 600-square-metre shop alongside the West Lake was designed by Alberto Caiola to appeal to the young urban consumer.
Alongside books, Harbook incorporates other lifestyle elements such as a cafe, and a showroom for Danish contemporary furniture brand Normann Copenhagen, into the building.
“For centuries, the city – and its legendary West Lake in particular – has inspired writers, philosophers and poets,” said the design team. “Harbook continues this legacy, expanding the city’s literary culture to include nods to European traditions, yet with a progressive contemporary approach.”
