A flagship store for the Brazilian shoe brand, the fitout needed to reflect the internationally renowned brand as well as support the unique product.
A dream commission that required an equally unique response. Housed in a corner site in Melbourne’s QV centre, a highly visible high traffic area it was essential that the fitout provided a visual feast for the passing pedestrian, a dynamic and constantly evolving space. Internally the need was to create another world, a sensory delight.

‘Colorfoto’ grew and needed a Megastore.
We tried to organize the space in a large and clean way, attempting to highlight the ampleness of the store despite the various happenings. The pavement and the ceiling, in white, contrast with the set of cabinets that cover the walls, designed in a way to serve as storage and display.

Ico Migliore describes it like this: “A place of discovery, reinterpreting a natural horizon through light, transparency and the suggestion of colour for Atelier Alcantara® and the launch of its innovative collection of bags and accessories.”
Alcantara® took part in Pitti Uomo 2012 with the first A di Alcantara® collection for men. The MIGLIORE + SERVETTO ARCHITETTI ASSOCIATI architectural studio has designed and created a distinct concept for the occasion: a delicate enclosure of light and shade set in a landscape of discovery, punctuated by a series of lights.

The brand new showroom for Belgian lingerie firm “Van De Velde” opened its doors in March 2010 at the high pedestrian traffic intersection between Madison Avenue and 33rd Street, on the first floor of a historic building, in New York.
The typical “Manhattan” open space needed to be divided into four different areas. The entrance, a closed office for one person – that could also be used as a meeting room – two work islands and a showroom area.

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.

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 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.
