To celebrate the company’s 45 years of existence, the owners of Boutique Penelope wanted to not only expand their Place Ste-Foy business in Quebec City but also refresh its brand image through a new store design. The goal was to create a flow between the various spaces while preserving the existing display cases. Hatem+D Architecture used a logical and harmonious design concept to devise three distinct and well-defined zones. The “watches” section, in elegant black located in the back of the boutique, features a sales counter and a screen wall. In the middle, the white “jewelery” area illuminates the space with its counters and a repair workshop that’s cleverly delineated with frosted glass partitions. The balance between this opposition of black and white is smoothly interrupted by the champagne coloured gemstone station, a display overhung by a sculptural structure that resembles the facets of cut diamonds. The space is topped with a white acoustic module with recessed light fixtures, which brings an elegant contrast to the black ceiling. The large volumes and visual oppositions of this layout all blend together elegantly. Customers are offered an experience that’s both sophisticated and functional, and whose beauty is only matched by the refreshing and refined design.

Designed as a prototype in 2012, Shoppers Drug Mart’s new Beauty Boutique concept is now hitting its stride. For this project, Tuxedo rethought the notion of consumer experience in the pharmacy’s beauty department and revisited the existing model within a controlled environment, focusing on architectural design. Results exceeded expectations in Bay view as well as in the Toronto Eaton Center in Ontario. The project was also very successful in 2014 in the Western regions of Canada, notably Richmond, Vancouver, and Calgary. This new year will bring a new pace to the Beauty Boutique with more store implementations in Ottawa and Montreal.

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.
