A new dimension for the fashion retailer.
July 12th, 2010
Founder of boutique design practice Waller, Andrew Waller’s work spans furniture design, architecture and interiors, with a focus on craftsmanship.
From residential interiors in Darling Point, which featured in DQ #38, to their latest commercial fit-out for the fashion store ‘Dimensions’ – Waller’s work is remarkably versatile.
“The client requested a contemporary ‘clean’ interior to showcase their products with stronger entry definition,” Waller told Indesignlive of the Dimensions fit-out in the Southgate Shopping Centre, Sylvannia.
“The brief in main was to renovate the interior to include a new shop front. The original facade had an undulated plan, which didn’t fully maximize the available space,” said Waller.
A profiled cladding system was developed, creating a textured wall finish defining the back-of-house spaces from the main store.
“The textured cladding was offset against some clean geometric shapes within the dome light fitting, joinery and furniture.”
The threshold was defined with a portico detail utilizing deep ’blade’ columns, while the window ’display zone’ was structured with the adjustment to the ceiling height.
The change room foyer was opened up, removing a dividing bulkhead to visually increase the ceiling height – the space was painted in the same warm gray as the clad wall.
Colour was requested to remain neutral to allow for the seasonal changes in fashions.
A single fully mirrored wall was inserted with doors concealing storeroom (and more joinery) to improve lighting levels and again visually increase the space.
