Wu Shisi was named Wu Shisi, one is “Wu Shisi” or 54, and the address of the car bar is located at No. 54 in Yangyao Bay; the second is the homophony of a samurai, and the meaning of “si” is also a wine restaurant.

此次我们接触的客户，多年浸淫酒吧，希望做一次全新的尝试：将酒吧和改装车行融合到一起。从私人酒吧到改装车厂，我们将项目整体进行了全新调整与改变，将自身归属到最硬派浪漫的日本 JDM 文化中，模糊现代“人”的身份与视角，重塑一场碰撞之下的时空对话。
The customer we contacted this time has been immersed in the bar for many years, hoping to make a new attempt： to integrate the bar with the modified car dealer. From a private bar to a refitting car factory, we have made new adjustments and changes to the project as a whole, and attributed ourselves to the most hard-line and romantic Japanese JDM culture, blurring the identity and perspective of modern “people”, and reshaping the time and space under a collision dialogue.
▲ 项目改造过程 Project transformation process
The original facade provides us with an extended and expandable space, and the unique appearance can also play a role in drainage and promotion. Based on the original form, we decided to incorporate differentiation into the design, not in harmony with the original exterior wall. Therefore, black and white has become the main tone of the facade design, and the overall shape is “cross”, which echoes the name of the project.
We incorporated samurai characters with a distinctive sense of the times into the space, and used this as inspiration to add elements related to samurai： neon lights customized for samurai images, wall illustrations created with Japanese Ukiyoe, and samurai helmet decorations.
In the space, we use a low sense of atmosphere, press the whole into the mysterious dark tones, and then use hard and semi-transparent materials to leave blank, leaving the space with an extension of consciousness, giving people a sense of collision , It also gives people room for imagination.
Whether you are an enthusiastic car fan who has already entered the pit, or a “novice” who has just come into contact with modified cars, you must have heard of the JDM three-character! As the most essential carrier of JDM culture, vehicle elements are also part of the construction space.
Just like the restoration of the modified car culture in “Fast and Furious”, this difficult but fatally attractive process can often only be carried out underground, so the unmodified factory buildings and mechanical equipment are integrated into the space. In form.
The cool design of the overall style uses retro decoration, black wall tiles, sewer wells that restore underground culture, wall texture that reflects the sense of old workshop, and the exhibition area that highlights the sense of speed with light tubes, reflecting the collision of new and old things. Sense of atmosphere.
If speeding brings a thrilling experience, then alcohol opens up a psychedelic world. Space is a paradise for adventurers. We not only use space as our work, but also an exploration and experiment of cultural expression. May the tenacious behavior never fall for morality and justice; the accelerating throttle will roar forward for oneself.
