The first chilean flagship needed to be an effective and recognizable small building that could transmit sophistication and sensuality. An existing building was transformed with a second skin, giving it a new regular and defined aspect that convert sit in a black hermetic box that works as a big sign age for a vehicular scale, but keeping inside a delicate store and merchandise.
This contrast between the container (hard box) and it´s delicate content is the main achievement of this Project. The external skin is done with lacquered plywood plaques, that were perforated with a sinous grid of backlight edsquares.
In the interior,a simple, elegant, modern and feminine mood is perceived. Black and white predominates and the delicate touch is given by elements such as rugs, gauze curtains and lamps. Fixtures made of black wood laminate and stainless steel are very functional and flexible. The clear Wood floor helps in giving a warmer aspect, and works as complement to black and White.
