The first % Arabica store in Central China has arrived in Wuhan, the largest city in Hubei Province. We selected the first store to be at Wuhan Xintiandi, a sister branch of the famous Shanghai Xintiandi, known for integrating Shikumen architecture with modern lifestyle. Wuhan Xintiandi is where the trends start in Wuhan, and we found a gorgeous store location with a wide storefront, perfect for relaxing coffee time with friends and pets.
For the store design, we collaborated again with the Beijing based Japanese architect, Shuhei Aoyama of B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio, and the talented team successfully connected outdoor and indoors by using the same pavement bricks to the interior.
If you find yourself in the contemporary Wuhan Xintiandi, make sure to complete your trip with a visit to this exciting and beautifully designed addition to % Arabica China.
