MAKING AN IMPRESSIVE IMPACT, these two wall treatments add dramatic grandeur to this high-end department store inside Canada’s second largest shopping center.
Spanning 49 ft. wide by 27 ft. tall in the main store entryway, two mirrored sections on either side of the leather goods entrance create an iconic focal point. At the stairs leading to the VIP lounge, a similar feature wall measures 29 ft. tall by 28 ft. long, for a total area of 2,500 sq. ft. Other design features include engineering sections of the custom perimeter screens — consisting of 2 in. wide aluminum tubes with aluminum plate frames — to allow for easy removal for maintenance of interior lighting.
Incorporating digital technology into the main entrance facade also gives the project an additional artistic, edgy vibe. Providing a neutral color palette creates an elegant backdrop for the luxury products.
Eight display cases measuring 8 ft. high by 30 in. wide were incorporated in the main entrance wall with tempered glass fronts, floating cantilevered acrylic shelves, and mirror polished chrome plate light poles. The interiors are lined with faux suede and a custom stained white oak veneer.
