The shell housing this home accessories store is a decadent old space with weathered finishes, its high ceilings ribbed with iron rafters that slice the space. The design intent was to draw out the inherent beauty of this envelope with minimal subtle interventions.
Large cement finished platforms transcend the length of the space sculpturally articulating its flatness. The original wooden windows of the external facade have been redesigned and adapted to give a touch of warmth to the space. The walls are semi finished and the raw surfaces finish of mild steel columns brought out to add to the patina of history the space embodies. This grand nostalgic space becomes a fitting backdrop to exhibit the crafted quirky objects that characterize the Viya collection.
