The main design purpose is the creation of a multifunctional space that will offer a unique shopping experience. The boundaries of the inside and outside are constantly blurred with the presence of plants, swings, outdoor lighting and doors in the inside space. A six meter glass façade is built that allows views to the patio at the back. The raised area of the café and the planted outdoor patio function as a window inside the store, allowing the vegetation and the natural light to dominate. All elements inside the store are designed from scratch, using objects and images in unexpected ways. Doors become tables, wooden frames surround hangers, weathervanes navigate the view to the cafe. The walls, stripped of any unnecessary material are left bare and roughly painted white. All ventilation and heating pipes are unhidden, enhancing the industrial and raw look of the inside. Trompe-l'oeil prints create unexpected views. In this new space, shopping and socializing constantly intertwine.
