Capsula multibrand store by GÃ¶SKE PROJECT, Budapest â€“ Hungary
The aim of the design was to create a highly elegant, spacious and welcoming store, which has been achieved with the colour white, the bright large plain and arched surfaces. The two architects â€“ Sandor Gocsei and Eniko Korompay â€“ have kept the historic buildingâ€™s indoor columns and the ratio of the space and given a flowing contemporary touch to it. Entering the store, we have the experience of stepping into an exhibition space; the clear-cut interior-design, the white surfaces, the lighting, all emphasise the fashion items in the store. The simple cubic counter elevates a mannequin and displays it with its dress as an art object, and the black â€˜shard of glassâ€™ shaped form hanging from the ceiling gives an extra stress to it.
The small boxes on the wall reinterpret the multibrand storeâ€™s typography, shaping the letter â€˜aâ€™ from the logo and showcase accessories such as Tom Ford, YSL and D&G bags. The capsule shaped recess in the wall creates an exclusive cabinet space for the Tom Fordâ€™s women collection.
The backspace of the store has a lower indoor height, so there was a certain need to connect the two parts as smoothly as possible, therefore barrisol came in handy and the front space flows into the backspace with this shiny arched ceiling, giving a comfortable transition to the different ratios.
