The concept involved the transformation of an existing residence into a stunning fashion boutique, constructed with golden metal squared poles acting as places for the clothes to hang as well as a complex three-dimensional lattice-like sculpture.

To entice any creative, the buildings harsh exterior has been painted matt black revealing a small peak of the brutalist golden constructions that lie inside. In order to access the space, visitors must ring the doorbell, as if they’re about to enter someone’s home.

The internal space manifests a fashion warehouse, containing stacked and connected metal poles producing varying densities throughout the rooms;

“golden anodized aluminium bars come together crossways to an orthogonal free-standing grid that reacts to the existing space it inhabits by wrapping around walls and filling in corners” explain the design team.

Items that occupy the display racks range from bags, shoes, accessories and other various fashion garments. The variety of levels and directions the bars offer allow numerous possibilities of how the items are presented against the continuous rubber floor that extends throughout the rooms.

A distinct feature of the minimalist display is the custom made hangers, illuminated by vertical lights designed especially for the space. The light source creates an important focus point and works to enhance the overall vertical and horizontal lines that the eye follows throughout the building.
