As a design consultant to the lead Architect, we produced initial concept aspirations, tender drawings and specifications to facilitate a unique presence on the highstreet which could be implemented in shopping centres, retail concessions or stand alone units.
The schemes included more fluidity to circulation areas, breakout spaces, consultation zones, product displays and selectors; all of which followed a consistent design language through the use of modular units, materials, colours and signage.
In particular we specified illuminated fabric screens which subtly add vibrancy to the stores but can easily be updated following branding updates. The softer materials, natural tones and feature lighting maintain a soft atmosphere conducive to cosy and welcoming environments associated with bedrooms whilst still permitting a mass product display.
Stores include Trafford Centre, Manchester; Lakeside, Thurrock; The Bentall Centre, Kingston upon Thames; Bristol; Bracknell.
