SABA has opened a new Melbourne boutique with the help of Soho Projects.
March 1st, 2012
Adding to their portfolio of beautiful retail spaces, Soho Projects have completed the fitout for clothing boutique SABA on Melbourne’s Collins Street.
Working closely with architect Hamish Guthrie from Hecker Guthrie and Nik Drakoulis from the Apparel Group Australia on the concept and delivery of the fitout, the team at Soho Projects ensured the efficient and timely delivery of the new store for the Australian brand.
Finishes needed to be of the highest quality. Wood, carpet, granite and stone were used for the floors, breaking up the large open space into smaller sections without enclosing the separate areas.
Chrome and black leather seating was chosen to complement the blackened steel and stainless steel of the clothing stands, continuing the contemporary feel and quality finishes throughout the store.
Excellent communication between all parties involved in the project led to hassle-free delivery, all within budget and a tight timeframe – a must for a busy popular retail brand.
