Recipients of a Certificate of Excellence in the recent A&D Trophy Awards, Shanghai-based firm Linehouse has created an innovative look for their first Hong Kong project: Côte&Ciel

Located in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, the project was designed to contain two double height spaces. Referencing the name of the retail store - côte meaning coast and ciel meaning skyLinehouse has visualised the collision of these two elements in different ways: nature vs urbanity, inside vs outside, and reflective vs matte.

Both spaces at Côte&Ciel have been filled with a vertical field of metal poles, which serve as a perpendicular connection between the two elements. The poles have a horizontal and a vertical gradient that moves between a rough and polished finish, and also act as a mode of display thanks to suspended exhibition boxes, mirrors and hooks.

Bag display fixtures feature black lava stone, and the cashier desk is clad in a grey Balmes stone which is complemented by stainless steel inserts. The street-level façade features a horizontal gradient that is composed of a range of different finishes of metal including: polished stainless steel, brushed steel and raw steel.
