R&G Sylvia Park store by Pennant & Triumph, Auckland

March 11th, 2013 by retail design blog

This store for Rodd & Gunn capitalises on the ambience and design aesthetic of the NZ luxury lodge. The exterior has been fully clad in recycled timber with oversized barn-like entrance doors that create a sense of welcome and give a clear view into the lobby of the store. This lobby like area was created to provide a ‘break’ for the customer from the busy mall where this store is located into the world of Rodd & Gunn – a relaxed and private place in which to shop.

The lobby and window areas were laid with basalt stone and the walls feature traditional battens. A large feature window in the lobby allows the customer to see the interior of the store drawing them in whilst also allowing the retail team to see the store entrance from the store counter at the rear.

Pitched ceilings and beams, a feature schist fireplace and chunky handmade chandeliers all add to the unique sense of the space being so much more than just a store – the design provides an oasis for any customer that walks through it’s doors.
