Vancouver, British Columbia
2013 / Complete / Commercial / Renovation / Interior / 4900 ft2
This project involved the renovation of an existing warehouse for a high end carpet retailer and signifies their evolution from a retail focus operation to a more trade specific business, catering to the architectural and design industry.
This new business model called for a space with greater storage capacity and work areas for employees and visitors. Similar to Salari’s previous space , individual hanging rugs slide out from their holding positions on either end of a large “stage”, where they are effectively showcased. Opposite the stage is a workstation and long, multipurpose wood storage unit that runs the length of the space, for samples and product brochures.
Clean, simple geometry and an honest palette of materials provide a quiet backdrop for the richness, beauty and vibrancy of the product.
