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.

Our concept for the Neil Barrett flagship store in Tokyo is based on the minimal cut of the brand`s fashion design and parallels its approach in using the same design parameters of fixed points, folding, pleating and cut outs. Rather than defining a single room or space, our design creates a circular passage allowing the customer to experience the space in multiple ways and interpretations. Furniture staged in key points throughout the store creates the spatial concept of a narrow enclosure changing to an open condition. In two formal elements the design shifts between architecture and sculpture, where a compact mass of surface layers unravel and fold to form the shelving display and seating. The emerging folds will be used as display area for the NB accessory collection.

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.

The VANDIJK FASHION STORE lies on the ground floor of a 19th century Dutch style city building in a typically very long and narrow space.
The shop presents itself as an extension of the street rather than a separate luxury unit. A frame-less pane of glass contributes to this blurring of the threshold between inside and out. It sets the interior space as an extension of the street-scape.

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 project concerns a new concept store for V Ave Shoe Repair. The Swedish fashion brand V Ave Shoe Repair works with traditional typologies of clothes but deconstructs them and create new hybrid garments. The assignment was to design an entirely new concept store that meets the commercial aspects of a retail space, but foremost to design the spatial encounter with the brand V Ave Shoe Repair.

Cross Rail Yard. Typically, a service building inaccessible to the public like this would be treated in a pragmatic and unremarkable way. In contrast, the Yardmasters Building confidently presents itself as a ‘public’ entity. Viewed in the round, it offers itself back to the city as an exquisite, mysterious box: a jewel in the junkheap. The project involved extensive consultation with representatives of the diverse users, their respective union representatives, and management and associated authorities.
