Cenerino is a children’s clothings store. The store concept has been developed through analyzing functionality, perception & the semantic aspect. Is a view on the children world trougth an adult perspective. We used an abstraction of over size toys as pieces of furniture, we raised the level of the pavement through a ramp and thin steps to raise the importance of small objects & with that we reproportioned the space that used to be long and narrow but metaphorically thinking on growing as well.
Coloured mirror paravent are fitting rooms that hint at the game of hide-and-seek. Long luminous shelves along the walls expand the space & illuminate and support the clothing and toys .
Rose colored window glass mixes with the external light and the blue of the walls. When all of these elements come together a space with subtle reminders of childhood remain in our feeling.
