Children's clothes Store
The inspiration was born from the cross between the program (children's clothing store) and the conditioning of physical space.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The space was designed thinking in the products to expose. Based on the white color, were defined spaces through shapes and colors. The sloped ceiling came from the condition that there is a large beam that crosses the store, originating a rip where a metal structure serves as support for a suspended lighting which highlights the central exhibitor.
The wide and fluid space, toghether with the predominant white color make the products to sell the real highlight of the store.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The main objective of the project was to give emphasis to the products to sell.

After we pass the first difficulties and after the spaces are defined we opted to use white color paint to give emphasis to the pieces to exhibit. The use of 2 more colors only signals the spaces with different areas, service counter, dressing and pause in sitting area. The ceiling composition was worked through geometric shapes such as the dome above the dressing space and the beam that points to the exhibitor through the suspension lighting.
The difficulties were boosted in the creative act by a large beam that "fractured" the space, already with small dimensions. The option to incline the ceiling, having the reference measures of the shop window, the beam and the back of the store was the beginning of the draw to the rest of the program; circulation, exhibition, service counter, dresser and storage
