"Sewing machines are in full view to the customer. We felt it important to have an inclusive retail & workspace environment. The industrial machines become part of the design aesthetic. The mesh panels across the shopfront help to filter the natural light."
"We retain the existing timber floor & stain with one coat of Black Japan; it comes up beautifully. All finishes are underpinned with interesting texture and a 'less-than-perfect' appeal. We treat the store as a workshop, so functionality is of utmost importance."
"Two central joinery units divide the space and house all the tools of the trade. The higher of the two units is designed to block vision into a messy back corner of the store. We also took the opportunity to redesign the ALLEN logo to come full circle and complete the aesthetic overhaul of the brand."
