Overview
Gowns take center stage in this minimal and subtly detailed retail boutique. Walls and millwork float above the polished concrete floor, while mirrored and frosted glass panels filter and reflect natural light deep into the interior. A concrete plinth set within a large, blacked out recess expands the depth of the floor plan and creates a dramatic backdrop for gown display. At the rear, a wedding aisle-like zone, tucked behind the main display area but brightly lit by a continuous recessed fixture overhead, serves as private prelude to the public lounge area.
