Inspired by Magritte’s Surrealist paintings & the whimsicality of Street Fashion, Actually Boutique redefines the conventional boutique-elevating it from a muted repository of clothes to a wonderland of sensory and fashion stimuli. Situated along historical Seah Street, the New Insertions into the space are suspended away from the Old Shell, creating a unified backdrop for the merchandise.
The project for the new Gianni Chiarini’ s showroom in Milan consists in a partially hypogeum exhibition space, located underneath an historical building in the heart of the city.
The access has been re-set up through a recessed patio in the courtyard pavement, which hosts the new stairway that leads to the showroom below. This morphological operation modifies the ground floor of the external area, emphasising the entrance and inviting the visitor to descend. The resulting basement patio has therefore transformed into a small garden, a formal filter between the public space and the more intimate and welcoming internal showroom.
The asymmetrical panels starting from the outer facade and flowing into interior spaces creates a sense of canyon experience. Dental Polyclinic that is located in Maslak Uniq Istanbul Shopping Mall, creates a striking appearance with its unusual concept. Space is cracked open by the circulation and the waiting areas which creates the perception of depth in the project. he service and clinic usages are located around the 3 solid walls of the space leaving the mediocre center open for easy access. This also helps to be able to read the usages of the spaces behind by the frames that are sticking out of the walls of the canyon wall. The spaces behind the panels around circulation are totally white, clean and simple which creates a strong contrast between the interior and exterior of the clinic box spaces.

Over the last 30 years, worldwide absolute poverty has fallen sharply (from about 40% to under 20%). But in African countries, the percentage has barely fallen. Still today, over 40% of people living in sub-Saharan Africa live in absolute poverty. More than half of them have something in common: they’re small farmers.
Time had taken its toll on the place. We proceeded like archeologists and we removed layer after layer until we found the spirit of the original building, a brick tiled floor and stone and brick walls that must have been more than 150 years old.
These old materials serve as a reminder of what the place used to be. We wanted to preserve them as soon as we discovered them.
The new separates from the existing. Thus, the shop window carpentry is attached to the facade anchoring from the outside, “presenting” the existing structure, appropriating its qualities, detaching itself from it and putting it in value. Its execution, its assembly and its detail are a presentation of the interior intervention.
There are many ways to express a brand; It could be a monotonous expression, or a diversified presentation. It is similar to magazine in this regard. A magazine has an unified tonality and values, it starts contact with readers through different contents, but a brand connects to clients through different products.
