Nique Melb Central

A store for Melbourne clothing label NIQUE. This design looks at the traditional idea of the shopfront being an independent barrier by using a central steel framed racking system, to serve as clothing display and shopfront. The natural materials and and utilitarian joinery reflect the labels philosophy of authenticity and diagonal steel braces on the rack create a motif of industrialised trees under a black sky. At the front of the store the rack angles inward in a welcoming gesture allowing the public space of the concourse to bleed in past the store lease line, encouraging people to filter in along side the steel form.
