Factory Five boutique, fixed-gear bicycle shop Shanghai
Established as Shanghaiâ€™s first fixed-gear boutique bicycle shop in 2010, Factory Five has graduated from its original premises to a double-height warehouse space in a converted wet market within the frenetic central Jingâ€™an district. Local studio Linehouse Architects have stayed true to the buildingâ€™s industrial framework, retaining its grey brick and concrete walls, while a mezzanine level was inserted to provide office space for the companyâ€™s in-house creative team.
The brandâ€™s community outlook is evidenced by way of a shop floor hub with a wraparound bar that encompasses a workspace and a counter for drinking house-brewed coffee and beer. Materials from the cityâ€™s numerous construction sites were salvaged where possible, resulting in tabletops and cabinetry fashioned from reclaimed wood and shelving and racks formed from refurbished army trunks.
The display walls meanwhile, feature a veritable cornucopia of single-speed rides, parts and accessories including Factory Fiveâ€™s signature bicycle frames and California-based Mission Workshop bags and clothing â€“ everything youâ€™ll need to saddle up for one of the shopâ€™s legendary night rides.
