Y. Di Cassanova store by Van Halewyck & Marco, Antwerp

August 29th, 2011 by retail design blog

The new shop Y. Di Cassanova is located under the recently built towers of Diener & Diener Architects on “t’ Eilandje”. The semi-transparent aspect of the building is subtly mirrored in the interior with white glowing translucent panels. The concept of a softer layer within the rough concrete concrete shell continues the white effect in the overall materialization. Under the white veil one finds surprising textures like coarse-grained wood and fiber board. Through careful manipulation of the different interconnected volumes a varied “parcours” is created with both intimate corners and free open space.
