The project name SOTG is short for 'surfing on the ground'. Inspired by the skateboard, the theme reflects the vibrancy, cultures and street art of Arab Street.
The concept was referenced from the arc of a skate park where the shape of the place is fixed, but the skateboarders move freely. The first floor is a chillout area where people can buy drinks from the machine or order at the counter. The second and third floors are retail areas for skateboards. Just as the skateboard is divided into five parts: deck, grip tape, trucks, wheel and bearing, these two floors correspond to the requirements accordingly. The fourth floor is where people can try out the skateboard or test their DIY boards. The fifth floor is a working studio where people can construct their their own skateboards or repurpose old ones. The space design is based on the concept of movement where people get a sense of extension in a fixed space.
Technical and futuristic aspects of cyberpunk style incorporating retro elements and vivid colours are infused in the space design to appeal to young people. Walls and flooring are concrete with stainless steel and metal used in the chairs and staircase.
