Size: 1985 Sqft
Architects: 4th Dimension, Mumbai
White Ash (Showroom) was designed to be an escape from the stereotypical retail design stores. The challenge was to utilize the space to its fullest potential, parallelly exhibiting the exclusivity of every product/brand displayed.
DESIGN AND ASTHETICS & MATERIALS
The concept was developed keeping into consideration the sole target to demonstrate the grandeur of a rustic interior, thus getting the aura of design and display together. The three zones have been carefully merged, thus weaving the materials on display. Every display panel has been designed unconventionally with every nook and corner of the retail hub customized and handcrafted right from handles , furnishings, ducts, panels, flooring, furniture’s adding to its exclusivity and glamour.
The Ac duct has been finished with strong rustic metallic texture adds drama. Rugged concrete flooring was taken as the base added with brass inlay in a free flow floral format. Exposed metal corrugated sheet in the ceiling has been finished with matt black paint.
