” Concept of the store was designed by people who like unusual kind of projects – mode:lina architectural studio. This shop was created to help people meet with architects so they can talk about their ideas. Here, everyone can use free consultations with designers who will help realize these ideas. There is a standard flat waiting for guests and a Recreation Zone, with coffee, snacks and trade press. The Interior Workshop will also organize creative workshops for children and adults. Conference room will be available as well. For children, the biggest attraction is certainly cinema called Young Users.”
The client had one aim – to create surprising space using low-cost funds. Therefore, architects proposed replacement of normal partitions with unusual installation. These high walls are made of scaffolding covered with banner mesh and filled with OSB cubes. Wooden boxes are used to present articles by the principle of “open space” that is permeating, readily available products.
External walls of the building were treated with strong, graphic gesture. Sheet painted black with huge lettering stands out from other, surrounding stores.
