The cash-register area was located at the center of the space, taking advantage of the continuity to the second level by the double height, a big wall, covered in Venetian glass is also part of the composition. The materials modulation marked the sense of the entire space, playing with the horizontal and vertical lines and their correspondent intersections. The resulting inner space generated gave place to the location of the displays. The more attractive feature of this store is the double heights that enhance the modulation of the display furniture.

To make a more attractive tour inside the store the display furniture has the same height.

A single module was designed for the display furniture that is piled according to the needs. Two finishes were selected for this module: natural and lacquered to enrich the texture. Tile and laminated floors, Venetian tiles and paint accomplished the right atmosphere for this shopping experience.
