DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Optika Di Moda

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Eyewear Store

INSPIRATION:
My main aim was to design a luxury opticians store in a historic building in Budapest that stayed true to its 19th century origins. I wanted to combine the old with the new in an elegant way by showcasing features like the authentic arched brick ceilings alongside contemporary fixtures. The chrome chandeliers are in keeping with the Romantic design of the building but provide a modern update, and the soft lighting keeps things warm and welcoming. I incorporated glossy white display cabinets, counters and floors to emphasise the proportions of the space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Optika di Moda is a luxury opticians in the centre of Budapest that stocks designer eyewear. With this project I wanted to ensure that the design of the store reflected both its location, a buzzy street lined with restaurants, bars and cafes, and the buildings original 19th century features. Built in 1850 by Matyas Zitterbach, the building was once home to Hungarian composer Franz Liszt and I wanted to showcase its original arched ceilings, brickwork and grand proportions in a modern way.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Designing, Construction (putting plasterboards, electrical works,tile laying works etc.), Furniture making, Furnishing, Purchase (carpet, chairs, chandeliers etc.)

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
As regards the designing, it started in March, 2014, lasted for 27 days. Execution lasted for 32 days. We appeared on Retaildesign's website, and we are available on our website.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The plasterwork was completely removed to reveal the buildings stunning original brickwork. The walls then underwent professional treatments and impregnation in order to strenghten and repair the surfaces. Natural materials including glass and wood were used to create the furniture and were given a multi layered, high gloss paint finish. Due to the limitations of working on a listed building, cables could not be drilled into the brickwork so joints were removed in order to install the electrics. As regards the facade I left the authentic shutters to maintain its original condition.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Space of the examination room and private area: 34m2 Space of the exhibition space: 32m2 Totally: 66m2

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I collected data whilst the owner estimated the expected number of clients and as a result he requested a stockroom too. I took into account the request of the brands representatives with regard to the number of glasses. To find the main characteristics of neoclassical architecture other tools of data collection were library studies and Internet research. This style is characterized by grandeur of scale, simplicity of geometric forms, and a preference for blank walls. I wanted to preserve these main traits of the design in accordance with the authority regulations.

CHALLENGE:
The opticians occupies a listed 19th century building in the centre of Budapest. It was originally built in 1850 by Matyas Zitterbach in the Romantic style and was once home to renowned Hungarian composer, Franz Liszt. Due to its listed status, my designs needed to adhere to strict building regulations so the main challange was creating a contemporary vision for a luxury store while respecting the original architecture and heritage of the property. The authoroties instructed me to include two toilets and a small kitchen. In order to facilitate space I planned a loft in which to store stock above the staffroom.
