Was in 2002 the first time we have been in Scardale, New York. Was to design a store for Pamelarobbins, a fashion business duo. After six years from the first project Pamelarobbins decide to expand their business in town opening a new space next door.
In the brief they ask us to design in continuity with the first store we did. So we decide to use conceptually the same materials, but updating the finishes. What was a frosted glass in the old store here become a custom made glass that can slightly reflect like a mirror, that can be back lighted, that you can’t see through. A glass wall with a warm feeling.
The layout concept of the new space is a tilted line and a square. The tilted line is the long glass wall that cut the storage area behind it. The square is a mirror box for the fitting rooms. Massive wood volumes complete the display elements.
