Shop Façade Paul Smith

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Spatial Design / Environmental Design / 2014

The darkly textured iron and oak façade of Paul smith Albermarle Street is sleekly evocative of Mayfairs Georgian past. The cast iron panels have a sinuous pattern of interlocking circles reinterpreting a regency motif. When seen obliquely they appear almost woven and draw further connections with the myriad influences brought to the project by Paul smith. These disparate influences are reduced together forming a subtly new identity, engaged with its neighbourhood at the same time as contributing to its future character, offering a rare resistance to the homogeneity of the global high street.
