Black Cant System - HEIKE Fashion Brand Concept Store

Hangzhou Shi, China

AN Interior Design Co.

An independent fashion store with an unexpected approach to retail design. 


Hangzhou Shi, China, 2016-12-14 -

The HEIKE fashion brand concept store is hidden on the second floor of a furniture store. A narrow staircase in the middle of the store leads to HEIKE.


The crossing of the space between the two levels, the stairway, is simultaneously concealed and enhanced by a sculptural black block. Named the ‘Black Cant’, this large slanted wedge separates by connecting and incorporates the passage from the ground to the first floor. It also includes the container for the fitting room and stock areas.


The dark and invasive volume is inserted by the architects as a ‘text’ on a blank page and serves as a store and a gallery for exhibitions and events.


HEIKE is achieved with geometric, cutting shapes, minimal furnishing and a varied range of materials such as concrete, steel, aluminum and mirrors. Different textures were used to create matt and shiny surfaces, all of them in strictly gray and black shades, eloquent signs of craftsmanship. Other examples is the raw concrete construction, contrasting with the polished floors, the steel window structures, the hangers, the intensely black marble dust finish and the polished metals.


HEIKE concept fashion store is a project by AN Studio and a poetic conceptual and spatial experiment to create an innovative example of interior design for an independent fashion brand. The project convinced the jury at the annual INSIDE Festival, which named the project World Interior of the Year 2016, as “it calls into question the conventional idea of a fashion retail store.”
