Montesilvano (PE) - Italy
Restyling of the Intrend Diffusione Tessile di Montesilvano store, a woman’s clothing outlet. A new retail concept has been developed with the redesign of the display system and the study of a new brand image. The sales area has been completely reorganized: the new exhibition equipment follows a cluster distribution around a central "square" intended to display the main class of the product. The new store shows a hierarchy between the departments, consistent with the Brand's product breakdown. The false ceiling was made in different heights, with a central breakthrough corresponding to the main square and perimeter groove lights in line with the layout. The new image of the Brand is reflected in the finishes and furniture: customised furniture has been designed mainly using charcoal grey painted metal and wood finish in grey and oak. The new floor is in resin-looking stoneware, suitable for the large surface area and the mood of the store; the sand grey colour warms the room without distracting the attention from the colours of the product on display. Also the toilets for the customers have been designed in line with the image of the store, using the same flooring you can find in the sales area and a cladding that is in contrast but reminiscent of the store furnishings. The intervention as a whole also had the aim of rationalizing the storage and service spaces and improving the energy performance of the enclosure through an internal coating and the replacement of all existing windows and doors with new low emission ones, including the entire shop window. The facade of the building has also undergone renovation, with an alucobond staves covering, which wraps the canopy and the upper part of the building, thus giving it a new architectural image.
