Panorama Design Group Creates a Playful Kids Bookshop in Chengdu

Reading might be fundamental, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be fun. The Kids Winshare bookstore in China’s Sichuan province capital city of Chengdu is no dusty maze of books. Instead, courtesy of Panorama Design Group, the shop is an inviting radius of circular zones orbiting around an engineering marvel of a central dome.

The inspiration draws from Joan Miro’s magical painting,” says Panorama’s founder and design director Horace Pan. “We have created organic shapes and forms, basically circles, as a new kind of kids’ space.”

The 13,000-square-foot area is divided into an open-plan “bookscape” with undulating custom shelving, reading pods, and a shop front, a swarm of blue-and-yellow classrooms and a restaurant. All of this surrounds a steel multimedia theater, surfaced in laminated wood.

“This is a perfect dome with a half-sphere sandwiched between four columns. We had to do a detailed calculation of the span proportion of the 360-degree projection and acoustic control,” Pan says, proving that Miro and math make excellent partners.
