PAMELA ROBBINS, NEW YORK
MULTIBRAND BOUTIQUE IN SCARSDALE, NY
In 2002, in Scarsdale, New York, architect Andrea Tognon was asked to design a store for Pamelarobbins, a fashion business duo. Six years after the first project, Pamelarobbins decided to expand their business, opening a new space next door. In the brief they asked to design in continuity with the first store. It was decided to use conceptually the same materials, but updating the finishes. What was a frosted glass in the old store, here became a custom made glass that slightly reflects like a mirror, that can be lighted from the back and that you can't see through. A glass wall with a warm feeling. The layout concept of the new space is a tilted line and a square. The tilted line is the long glass wall that cuts the storage area behind it. The square is a mirror box for the fitting rooms. Massive wood volumes complete the display elements.
