design. work. shop.
‘Makers’ concept store was built on the clients brief not to design a regular stationary store; the client had something else in mind – a store that will sell design workshops.
This was our starting point for the design; we wanted to create a place that will inspire the students that joined the workshop. Every surface was a clean slate to make something new.
The merchandise space and the workshop space are divided by a sliding glass door that give the option to switch easily between a functional store and a quiet workshop space.
In a search of crafted elements, we developed a ceiling that looks like detailed handwork embroidery, it gives us an esthetic and acoustic solution as one, that emphases the artsy vibe of the store.
We used materials from building and construction world that gives a quiet and textured background.
The triangular shape of the façade hints a relaxed and cozy feeling, like a house roof, made from oak wood. This makes the store stand out from other store facades in the mall.
