DRAKE'S BY PENTAGRAM DESIGN
Drake's Gentlemen's Outfitters opens store in London combining traditional philosophy with contemporary panache.

The interiors brief was to replicate the quality and craftsmanship of Drake's products in store. Russell and his team clad the walls in European walnut panelling with a herringbone parquet pattern and brass detailing.

CANDIDO 1859 BY LOLA
Candido 1859 is one of the first fashion label stores to open in Southern Italy. The Men's department consists of a main commercial area, three separated mono label spaces, and a 'private' sales room and a storage area. This floor was a later addition to the original 18th century building that was formerly a private residence whose structure is characterized by thick walls and high vaulted ceilings.

ORTHODONTIC PRACTICE BY ATELIER H-2-A
The orthodontic practice of Dr.Tina Bayr and Dr. Dominik Spaeth is located in the second oldest building in Ueberlingen, in Germany, built in 1601.

Atelier H-2-A faced a few design challenges during the renovation, as the exterior façade, wooden beams and interior columns were held under a preservation law.

MCGREGOR BY CONIX ARCHITECTS
The 'Wolweverskapel' in Ghent, a protected monument underwent a thorough conversion in 2002 to preserve the building. A palette of ochre and cream now reinforces the patina of the high slender columns and chapel walls. When entering the building, one's attention is immediately drawn upwards to the original wooden truss, which still displays all the grandeur of honest craftsmanship. Respect for the chapel as a monument was the point of departure for the whole project.
ATRIUM BY STUDIO RHE
For the last twenty years, ‘Atrium’ has been located in the base of the Centrepoint tower, London. Recently ‘Atrium’ has made a professional move away from modern furniture supply to selling the finest lighting products – a move that needed both explanation and celebration.

The brief required an interactive open space with a central reception area that could very easily be converted into a darkened showroom.

HEIMTEXTIL BY CAMPAIGN
Campaign was commissioned by leading trend forecasting agency The Future Laboratory to create an installation at Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles.

The brief for the installation was Reconnect, The Future Laboratory’s survey of the emerging trends, attitudes and inspirations that will influence the designer and consumer in 2011-12.

TSVETNOY CENTRAL MARKET BY LDS
Adjacent to the Old Moscow Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ 3,930m² scheme for this the new department store features a striking, reflective stainless steel interior which captures the colour, buzz and activity in the store’s food market space and creates a sense of drama which shimmers right down to the lower retail levels.
