ICEBERG is an ideal set for a new and innovative hairdressing shop. The shop is located next to coffee shops and commercial spaces so the external brise-soleil, which create the internal privacy, become the main theme of the project. A white wave that from the facade enters in the shop and becomes a wallpaper and modifies the interior space. The interior design reminds a seascape “post-ice-age”.

- Project: ICEBERG
- Software used: AutoCAD, Rhinoceros, Cinema 4D and Abobe Illustrator for the panels on the walls.

The Weinkellerei Höchst has opened a second wine shop in the new extension of the Main-Taunus Centre. The new store boasts a floor space of 80 m². The task was to present its range of over 600 different wines and spirits, delicatessen items and gifts within this compact space. The wide range of wines and the retailer’s extensive wine knowledge are highlighted here in a sensual setting intended to animate passers-by to purchase. Therefore the first impression from the outside is one of undiluted wine expertise. Resembling a library of learned tomes, wine bottles fill the store from floor to ceiling along all three interior walls. A mirrored ceiling band running around the edges of the space further multiplies this effect in the vertical. Within the mirrored ceiling a canopy of glass vessels is suspended, forming a strong key visual. The light breaks in them like candlelight reflected through a glass, giving this otherwise modern setting the atmosphere of a wine cellar and conjuring up associations of epicurean indulgence.

Wurl Wood was the name of the furniture building and restoration shop formerly occupying a 1940’s concrete block and wood framed elementary school. The building site, located in Robertstown Georgia, sits on the top of a small mount with panoramic views of the surrounding stunningly beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest and north Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains.

The renovation of this historical costume makeover studio in Arashiyama, Kyoto, has been completed. A 40 year old building that seemed like a traditional old house has been renovated to a modern shop. There was a need for us to find a design solution that took into account the local-ism and landscape features of Arashiyama, Kyoto. Not many buildings consider the landscape that they inhabit. Even though there are limitations to the form and finishes of buildings due to landscape regulations around this area. The buildings that have generic tourists attraction features, historical architecture and a traditional Kyoto town houses create a miscellaneous town.

Located on the busy 2nd Street in Belmont Shoes (Long Beach), CA, this shoe store focuses on high-end women’s shoes and accessories. The founder gave us this task: \”display shoes in a new, modern, chic way…someway that I have never seen before!\” We began with creating a simple palette of colors and forms with soft edges and decorative lighting. Ipe wood was integrated into the design as a way to warm up the interiors and bring nature in from the exterior.

De Farine & D’eau Fraîche is a pastry boutique, whose concept is founded on love, naiveté, and escapism. In designing the space, Surface3 sought to capture the essence of pastries and the way we enjoy them in a way that is simple, magical and lasting; from the exchange of pastries as a ritual signifying love and friendship, to the pleasure inherent in simple indulgence.

Incorporating organic sculptural elements, the design for Marni’s flagship London store creates a unique sense of visual connectivity that encourages full exploration of the two level shop. The gleaming white resin ground floor seamlessly stretches up to the first floor so that both levels appear attached. Stainless steel steps have been cut into the inclined wave that connects the floors and add to the flowing sense of movement. Polished stainless steel rails, used for displaying merchandise, migrate freely through the space like legs of futuristic insects.

These items are gifts that are given out on special occasions, such as at weddings and christenings, to the guests.
