api(+) has been honored with the Retail Design Institute’s Specialty Purveyors & Provisioners division award for the new Butcher’s Mark prototype in the institute’s annual store design competition.
The Retail Design Institute annual Store Design Awards celebrates outstanding, innovative retail spaces that encourage new techniques in planning, design, graphics, fixturing, lighting, materials, and visual merchandising.
Butcher’s Mark is a 3,000-s.f. specialty marinated meats store. The first location is now open at a retail center in Sarasota, Fla., U.S., and nationwide rollout is planned.
The design of Butcher’s Mark was strategically developed to reflect and support the store’s high level of customer service and exceptional quality of product. The facade features architectural brick that transfers to the interior for a seamless urban connection. Inside, butcher-block wood fixturing ties to the process and warms the environment.
