This project strives to provide a rigorous design for a building type that is sometimes overlooked by serious architectural investigation. It is the first purpose-built structure for the international music retailer, Virgin Records, who needed a strong identifiable architectural image to provide them with a clearly recognizable landmark within the existing urban context. The challenge was to provide them with the dramatic impact they needed whilst overcoming the limitations of a site with a very narrow frontage.

Street-wear store is located on the ground floor of a historic tenement house in the city centre of Wroclaw (PL). Shape of an existing volume became a major inspiration and an impulse to design Headquarters Store as an abstract landscape. Arches and gates from steel pipes, filled with glass panels, reinterpret contours of existing barrel vaults and deform standard clothes hanger. Contour objects – together with simple white furniture from medium-density fiberboard – create additional subspaces inside a boutique.

For Australian skin care brand Aesop, we planned the interior and exterior of the new store on Meiji Street in Shibuya. The store is located on the first floor of a three-storey building situated between two taller buildings; the space is long and slender – 2.6m in width, 7.8m in depth and 3.9m in maximum height. We aimed to work with these proportions to provide a welcoming and intimate space for communication with customers.

Housing various skin-care and health products of Aesop, the space of the store is narrow and deep; the shot-gun organization is laid out asymmetrically with products framed in recycled boxes randomly stacked on one wall, the entire depth of the space.
The opposing wall is clad in cork–pure, seamless and unfettered by any intricacy. Using the strict repetitive organization of the Aesop bottle– a leitmotif of the brand– the random stacking of boxes acts to downplay the regimented nature of the brand.

When we were commissioned to design this store, it was a year after the Great Tohoku Earthquake. From experiencing such great disaster we realized the importance of communication in communities, and began to question the present situation of retail stores that are typically glass-clad buildings with no operable windows, where no interaction between street and store would happen.

The project is located in Los Angeles California, USA, The property is found at street level in a commercial area, on a street where there are mostly shops with a lot of traffic of cars and pedestrian.
