Stars Dollars Hearts (SDH) is an online shop established in 2021 with the intent of creating a conceptual space for artists and creatives to experiment. SDH seeks to transform this digital platform to a physical space.

A former massage therapy studio along locally owned and patronized shops in Lake Merritt, Oakland is the project’s site. Inspired by the history of the space and its context, we started to imagine a space that remembers the past and embraces its future. After iterations and deliberations, we started to develop and balance the process of subtraction and addition. The remainder of the studs kept spatial stability and can be used as fixtures for product displays and so forth while the addition of curtains allow spatial ephemerality and flux, creating a range of congurations and customizability for a gallery, shop, community gatherings, and play.
