The fitting out of three large units in the former Harrods depository, as shop, offices and showroom for the fashion designer Ally Capellino. Work included new services and structural alterations with a new glass floor, and the design of fittings and furniture.
The concrete finishes and services are left exposed – and materials used in ways that make clear the method of their making, with a simple palette of steel, timber and glass allowing clothes and accessories to take centre stage.
The glass floor allows light and a sense of connection to work spaces below but avoids losing valuable ground floor sales area.
