The Hip-Hop culture empire
My project is based on a unique live work environment for a professional rapper and producer, DZ. Surrounded by restaurants, bars, shopping stores and clubs , the location is in a two storey empty retail unit in Chester. My idea is to separate the living, producing and performing environments with a social and performance space to rap with his hip hop music on the ground floor. The first floor contains his private living and working space.
The project has been designed around the personality of the client, full of a hip-pop and modern elements within the private space including graffiti brick wall and skateboards and CD albums displayed on walls.
