Article source: Manuelle Gautrand

The new Citroën showroom is at number 42 Champs Elysées; Citroën have owned the site since André Citroën set up shop there in the 1920s. His original showroom was beautiful, the interior was extremely theatrical, and the glass rectangle façade beautifully proportioned, very minimalist and contemporary.

Surefoot Beaver Creek in Colorado by The Los Angeles Design Group, LLC

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: The Los Angeles Design Group, LLC

Beaver Creek is the seventh in a series of stores designed by The LADG for Surefoot. Each store is unique, specifically designed for the space and the demands of the local market.  At Beaver Creek, the design concept of the store is not unlike the construction of a ski-boot: it’s an efficient, comfortable center, surrounded by a very complex and performance-driven shell. In the middle of the store there are several custom-fabricated pieces of furniture that house Surefoot’s custom fitting process. The furniture is designed to be unobtrusive and helpful – kind of like an ergonomic butler to the fitting process. Fittings are exacting, and customers can spend hours working with Surefoot staff to get the boot just right. Subtle angles in the furniture help position customers’ feet and a series of platforms bring boots up to exactly the right height for operators to work on them.

dpHUE Concept Store in Maple Grove, Minnesota by Julie Snow Architects

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Article source: Julie Snow Architects

dpHUE offers a fresh new brand, a new product and the importance of the customer experience. Their first retail location needed an architectural space to support their company’s mission. Customer experience was of the utmost importance and guided all design decisions from concept through completion. Customer consultation, product display, point of sale and customer demonstration areas were all critical programmatic components.  While the design was created to the specifics of this store location, the intent from the beginning was that this would be easily adapted when the company opened other locations. This adaptability of the design for future stores was addressed by defining several key components within the space that could be easily transferred to other spaces.

Stills Flagship store in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Doepel Strijkers

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Doepel Strijkers

On the Cornelis Schuijtstraat in Amsterdam a flagship store has been realized for the label Stills. The spatial interventions in the hull, which visually connects the floors, are not emphasized by smoothing them but has been kept visible to show additions and finishing layers over time. There is a base from which the original shop and its transformations over time remained visible. This pattern of textures in the existing building is complemented by an object. A spatial translation based on the values of the label.

The last link in a ‘chain’ of buildings, the showroom references adjacent structures, onsite processes and the BMW car through its dynamic shape – forming naturally from the surface of the car park, extending its surfaces through two building parts which ‘rotate’ one around the other to contain showroom and other functions.

The BMW showroom, which also serves as delivery unit of company cars and contains both garage and training academy, constitutes the last link in a chain of buildings created for the BMW plant at Leipzig.

Showroom at Night

The showroom occupies the main approach to the Zaha Hadid Architects designed Central Building, referencing adjacent structures, onsite processes and the BMW car through its dynamic shape.

Showroom Model

The building emerges naturally from trajectories established by the Central Building, forming from the surface of the car park, extending its surfaces to form two distinct building parts, pointed outwards in opposition yet seemingly rotating one around the other.

Showroom Model


With one building element the main showroom or exhibition hall is accommodated; an exposed concrete wall containing curved and rhombic passages houses workshop and academy. While the showroom façade presents as a light and open feature, through the use of ‘strip windows’, the workshop is finished in contrast – stonewalled and bitumen-grey, signifying its status as a place of concentrated endeavor.
