The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store QVB

The Sydney city store for this iconic brand was required to undergo a refurbishment to create a more contemporary space, whilst ensuring that the international brand standards were upheld.

At the same time – the retailer was determined to maintain the current ambience of the space to ensure that none of the existing clientele would feel alienated by the upgrade.

The dominant use of timber veneer was reduced to allow for a more varied finishes pallete and the introduction of feature colours and design elements helped create a space that had more visual strength.

A subsequent second airport store was also refitted by Foster and Associates to align with the new store image .
