KIRK ORIGINALS FLAGSHIP STORE, LONDON
In stark contrast to the conventional clinical white box of traditional opticians, Campaign has created a dramatic interior for the London flagship store of global eyewear brand Kirk Originals.

Located in Conduit Street, in the heart of London’s west end, the new store showcases the Kirk Originals collection of stylish glasses and sunglasses in its entirety along with selected ranges by independent eyewear brands exclusive to Kirk Originals in the UK.

CHOCOLATE LOUNGE, DUBLIN AIRPORT
During high season busy airports tend to make stress levels soar and can ruin the beginning of what is supposed to be a relaxing break abroad. Help is at hand however at Dublin Airport’s new Terminal 2, where passengers can indulge in a stress-busting treat at the Chocolate Lounge, an innovative new F&B concept designed by internationally renowned design studio Graven Images.
SUGAMO SHINKIN BANK
Sugamo Shinkin Bank is a credit union that strives to provide first-rate hospitality to its customers. Having completed the design for branch outlets of Sugamo Shinkin Bank located in Tokiwadai and Niiza, Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + design were also commissioned to handle the architectural and interior design for its newly rebuilt branch in Shimura.
CHANEL SOHO, NEW YORK
The new 4,170 square foot Chanel boutique, located in the heart of Soho, was inspired by the artistic feel of the neighborhood, and was designed to reflect its legendary spirit.

Its interior design also draws inspiration from signature icons of the house and from materials reminiscent of the brand.

Architects and designers SHH have completed a luxurious £3m, 2-storey VIP passenger lounge at Biggin Hill airport, for client Rizon Jet, a Middle East- and UK-based private aviation group. Located within a major new-build 130,000 sq m hangar and VIP terminal facility at the airport, the lounge was launched at the same time as a similar facility in Doha, State of Qatar.
PALATINO CENTRE, TURIN
The Palatino Centre is located in the area of Porta Palazzo in Turin, one of the oldest areas of the city. Within the program of upgrading the entire area, the task of designing the new indoor market hall for clothing was assigned in 1998 to Studio Fuksas, following a public international competition.
OPEN LOUNGE BANK, ZURICH
Raiffeisen’s flagship branch on Zurich’s Kreuzplatz dissolves traditional barriers between customer and employee, creating a new type of 'open bank', a space of encounter.
