The building with a facade, renovated according to the Archmixing company`s project, is located at one of the main streets of Shanghai and is included into the National program of general reconstruction of places, which have historical significance. The old house, planned to be used as a shop or office, is now covered with two layers of different materials: traditional grey brick and unusual luminous brick. The façade seems painted in grey at the daylight. However, when the evening comes some its parts become luminous and attract attention. The brick laying is designed in the way, which prevents any visual changes at the daytime, which become so obvious at night. Such reconstruction was designed in order to emphasize the difference between the two commercial buildings, located opposite one another.
