Librería Proa Commercial Project
This project involved a total renovation of a 400m2 former two story fabric shop. A large oxidized steel cube acts as an entrance which helps regulate the heat or cold entering the shop. The sides of the cube inside the shop act as a display for featuring bestsellers. Dramatic red pendant lamps define the check-out area and contrast against the grey and white.
Each department of the bookshop is identified by color-coded arches and signage within a structure of dark grey walls with suspended slanted ceiling panels incorporating the overhead lighting. The original architectural details were preserved in the upper level ceiling by creating perimeter lighting.
