The 7,659-square-foot (703-square-metre) floor plate is naturally divided into different areas by the building’s structural grid, which the team used to delineate separating black-framed glass walls and doors. These glazed partitions create rooms within the otherwise open plan, but allow the natural light entering from two sides to permeate.
Angled white walls with large expanses of glazing frame vistas of the district and the surrounding landscape. The space is topped with a high roof made from aluminium profiled sheets that creates a spacious interior. To bring plenty of light inside, the architects inserted the skylight above a hallway in the centre of the space, bridging the ridge of the roof.
Upon entering the lobby filled with natural daylight, visitors will feel Wet Seal’s level of quality and simple style statement through the use of materials, furnishings, lighting and displays. Transparency is immediately apparent in the facility with the visibility of client meeting rooms that open into the bright and airy lobby space.
The understated palette, captured by immaculate white walls and ceilings, and furnishings and fixtures with a lacquered black finish, is paired with beautiful dark timber flooring. And while this backdrop is sure to make the merchandise pop, things take a more intimate turn in the sections where shoes and accessories are presented.
