Practice in the City
Shanghai
For mental health consultation platform
KnowYourself's first brick-and-mortar
location Practice in the City, Mur Mur Lab
sought to create a space secluded from the
bustling streets of Shanghai that resembles
urban caves. " The concept comes from
the circulation of emotion, " says Samoon,
cofounder of the locally based firm. " We
wanted to have the caves be the volumes of
people's emotion. "
Despite its narrow layout and location on
the second and fourth floors of the building,
it was important that the design elevated
the practice's serene mindset. The team
accomplished this by accentuating sinuous
curves with artificial and natural light that
filters into the space via expansive windows,
which creates patterns inside for an artistic
and abstract expression. Fittingly, a soothing
palette of blue, white, and gray imbues a
sense of calm in the reception, VIP zone, and
three yoga rooms. Mur Mur Lab considers
this the retail experience of the future. " [The
project] is motivated by art and oneself, "
Samoon says, " and architectural methods
help us realize that. "

Sinuous curves and soothing tones
evoke tranquility and mindfulness

Natural light filters through floor-to-ceiling windows
and geometric cutouts to create abstract patterns

Blue, white, and gray
hues instill a calming
atmosphere
