Design Practice Location:
The Grand Influx Presentation Centre is located in the city of Foshan in the central Guangdong Province of southeastern China. This thriving metropolis is steeped in the history and culture bequeathed from the Ming Dynasty and Foshan’s renowned ceramic artisans. Balanced symmetry, bold clean architecture and cultural referencing are fused together in this 1,460-square-metre presentation centre to captivate prospective purchasers. Artful contemporary duplications of iconic Ming Dynasty furniture, motifs and patterns are selectively distributed throughout the project, helping to establish a sense of place, both geographically and historically. The interior’s colour palette has been borrowed from the traditional ceramics displayed throughout the presentation centre: emperor blue, oyster pearl, onyx black and soft stone grey.
