It appears there’s still plenty of room for innovation in the bookstore space, as this new example from X+Living shows. The store features several different areas, each designed for different purpose. There’s the traditional ‘Borders’ style area with multiple levels, a children’s area with colourful mushrooms and bear-shaped shelves and a lecture area designed for impromptu lectures.
Architect Li Xiang explained that the store reflects the culture of Chengdu (the city in which the store is based). In fact, there’s even information about the city in the entry window, embedded directly in the glass.
