The design schedule has the following minimum requirements :
– Visual Merchandising (store design)
– Office and Storage activity at the basement
– Cash Point (1)
– Dress Room (2)
– Display Windows (3) considering the level of the passenger as passing on Leventis str.
Design Solution :
The newly renovated and redesigned store is called “Bliss”. The merchandise that appears on the display windows on Leventi’s str. is being at the same time part of the merchandise that is exposed instore. This is achieved by the use of a long curved metallic track that crosses the store. The clothes are hanged on that metallic track creating a direct communication with the outside and the passer-by.
The door is slightly moved on the left giving the space for the second display window of the frontstore.
The color palette is based on pal colors, light pink and blue with ochre and flesh-coloured walls.
The rate between the activities of the actual shop in it’s actual dimensions is being shown at the schema below.
