设计单位 Mur Mur Lab
Blacksheep Espresso是上海卢湾区口味排名第一的咖啡。某天，老板娘Kitty找到慕蓉，希望Mur Mur Lab为黑羊做一个改造。
Blacksheep Espresso is the TOP 1 coffee brand in Shanghai Luwan District. Someday, the owner, Kitty approached to Samoon. She hoped that Mur Mur Lab can renovate the little space of Blacksheep.
On contrary to most commercial neighborhood, Blacksheep choose to have a rather closed facade instead of the common openness. Mirrored stainless steel facade reflect the colorfulness of day and night of the city, while all the interior space is well-hided inside. Just like the definition of Blacksheep, independent and distinguished.
Coffee is the core of Blacksheep, like Architecture is the core of Mur Mur Lab. In order to guarantee the quality of coffee beans, Blacksheep directly get in touch with the supplier in Africa, and name their coffee beans after the origins.
Therefore, the space for coffee making is quite big, even it is just a 30㎡ place. Coffee is in the first place, and then people. We put everything that related to coffee into the core of the space -- Coffee Box. It contains the function of coffee making, display and cashier.
The inside and the outside of the coffee box altogether built up this little shop of 30㎡. And also we buried a coffee bean for the future.
The space itself is quite small, and we don’t want to design it big. Following this intuition, we hope to create a feeling of intrinsic protection, a relaxation of both body and spirit.
Subtle curves intersect each other, gently embracing the whole space. They converged into a dome, which is named as the secret snow house. Light flows down along the curves, like water, rendering the most beautiful form of this space. Here, we created a minimal space that don’t forsake intimacy. The wall is like a piece of clothes. You won’t feel squeezed, but very cozy.
There are many interesting conversation happened during the process. They have nothing to do with theories. They are all about real desire, which determined what the space’s ultimate look.
Ask Blacksheep Espresso, can we design a sheep for the facade？
Ultimately, this cute idea didn’t realize. However, when you walked into this space that full of intimate curves, you may possibly catch an invisible sheep, which is also the Blacksheep of Mur Mur’s spirit of Architecture.
问Mur Mur： 做个雪屋干嘛呀？
Mur Mur ： 这是给你们做的隐藏的打卡区呀。 如果一个人静静在里面待上一会，没准有自拍的欲望。
Ask Mur Mur: why do you design a snow house?
Mur Mur: This is a spot for photos. If you sit there for some moments, you might have an impulse to take a selfie.
The construction manager said: We have polished those little hole on the door for a long time. The door is quite heavy, both physically and mentally.
One night, we passed by Blacksheep Espresso, Lee said to me, feels like we haven’t gone home for a long time.
