May 28, 2020 Andreas Luco 0

The Brick Pixelation Facade at the P.C. Hooftstraat 140-142 embodies the intricate, crafted details epitomised by couture clothing. Cast stainless steel bricks with glass inlays pixelate together along this partially transparent facade to create a distinctive shopfront experience on one of Amsterdam’s best-known streets. The P.C. Hooftstraat is famous for its high-end boutiques and design shops, situated between the Museum Quarter, the Vondel Park and the Oud-Zuid neighborhood. Shops along this street are a testament to Dutch design, creativity, high-end clothing, and art. UNStudio’s renovation brought two separate buildings together to become one retail space, making The Brick Pixelation one of the largest retail spaces along with the P.C. Hooftstraat.

Loja Fernanda Yamamoto Store / Atelier Danier Corsi

May 25, 2020 Andreas Luco 0

Architecture and Fashion Design are fields of expression that can share many principles related to the ethical and aesthetic values of human culture. As a subtle synthesis, what was sought in this reformulation of the stylist Fernanda Yamamoto’s store in São Paulo, was the dialogue between structures that can manifest both what is ephemeral and what is perennial. From the new volumes of the dressing rooms, a space of vital importance for the ambiance of those who visit, the static dimension of architecture is constantly transformed by the possibility of changing the fabrics of the curtains that identify each collection of the stylist. Parallel to this, these same fabrics are surrounded by a diaphanous ‘skin’ – the glass – which, with its reflections and transparencies, causes them to take on distinct aspects, added to a new equally expressive lighting. Built in 2009, the fashion designer saw the need to transform and adapt store spaces to a new atmosphere.
