DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ilumel

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Store

INSPIRATION:
The concept of this proposal is about to unify four buildings with a front of 2,120 square meters in the center of Santo Domingo city. With a translucent skin applied, we achieve a light presence, which is illuminated at night, enriching the image of the city. The die-cut custom anodized aluminum panels were assembled as a new facade supported by a metal structure wich have been designed to achieve a floating effect and allow generating a large flow on the ground floor.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project consists in the design, planning and integral construction of the previous buildings that make up this store. The essential task of this intervention of 18,500 square meters is to create a flagship store, with a defined corporate image that will lead future developments. In this way, a single trade of a large interior areas is created, seeking to improve the customer experience.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The program included the demolition of the walkway that communicated to two buildings of four, and the redefinition of the circulation and operation schemes of the total of 18,500 square meters of store, as well as a change of image for the store in order to create a Flagship store, with a defined corporate image that will lead future developments. In this way, a single trade of large interior areas is created, seeking to improve the customer experience.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has been worked in different phases since 2007, the last intervention was concluded in March 2018 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
With the aim of creating a timeless architecture noble materials are proposed. Always looking for something that does not go out of style. The skin of the building is made with a type of metal enclosure made of perforated anodized aluminum plates, a material manufactured in Colombia. The metalice appearance of some elements was achieved thanks to use of a decorative cement used in Cement Design's Metallic Collection, an exclusive fine granulometry material, made of natural steel. All the products of the collection are made with metals extracted from nature in its pure state.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Currently the store has more than 18,000 square meters of exhibition, updated technologically, well lit thanks to the integration of natural and artificial light. The first floor is dedicated to decorations and decoration accessories, some galleries have been arranged to exhibit exclusive lines, while other areas are designed to be used for special events, missile launchers and art exhibitions. One of the new spaces is a small cafe that stands out for the contrasts and decoration details. On the outside green areas were proposed that soften the site and the integration to the avenue.

TAGS:
Architecture, Restyling, Building, Structure.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
After nearly four decades of history, the Ilumel store is one of the largest and most prestigious firms in the Dominican Republic in the furniture, lighting and decoration market. The most recent intervention responds to the need for expansion and expansion of the exhibition areas and the definition of a cleaner and more articulated route that allows us to appreciate the variety of collections available. In addition, on that occasion it was elaborated a master plan for future growth.

CHALLENGE:
The studio was aware of the great challenge to demand for buildings of architectural value and which were the icons for the city, and the large scale of the project involved the risk of becoming a very massive element. In the design process the proportions and various elements such as the gray facade were respected, and the silhouette of the original design was maintained.
