BROTHER OPTICIANS, GURGAON
Completed : 2021; 750 sq.ft.
The interior experience of this optical store is envisioned to be all encompassing and holistic. The space is carved to form two distinguishable zones canopied by a sloping ceiling. The first zone for general display has a subtle materiality of exposed concrete offset by white display units. The ceiling of this space is designed to have indents that house the lights as well as other services and form a design pattern that is accentuated by grooves that connect the floor, wall and ceiling into one cohesive entity. The second zone is for premium display and contrast from the first in both materiality, palette as well as display designs. It however, maintains the same form of a sloping roof seemingly inset into the larger section. The service areas are cleverly hidden behind the wooden façade of the second zone with frameless doors obscuring their presence completely.
