shopping spots of the world. The store is in a rectangular space, narrow and
deep. The arrangement of the space is designed to create spaciousness inside.
The strategic placement of several interior items succeeds to catch by surprise
the customers and to promote the interaction with the brand to enhance the
purchase experience. The double height façade is completely white in order to
shine in the middle of the outside chaos.

Work: Adaptation and implementation of the concept of image "Castel Veciana
arquitectura" study in new stores
Coworker: Esther Catalán, Montse Jariot
The store has been divided into several parts with different colors and materials
seeking symmetry and order in the store. White for the entrance area, middle
zone in dark color, and green on the ceiling and the final area of fitting rooms.
The result sets apart the sales area and makes customer circulation easier.
