Heytea Zao Flagship Store (Nantou) / CCD

Nantou Ancient Town is located in the central area of Shenzhen, with a history of more than 1,700 years. It is the cultural birthplace of Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao. Through renovation, this urban historical and cultural neighborhood has been activated and renewed. CCD conceived a Heytea store sited in Nantou. Through integrating the site’s millennia-old cultural heritage and the city’s modernization over the past three decades, the CCD team created an example that represents the rebirth of Nantou. Based on modern approaches, CCD introduced classical architectural elements to inject timeless charm into the architecture and interior space. The most beautiful “sphere” strengthens the aesthetics of the space, which breaks conventional store design and creates an “undefined” inspiring space.
