Project Details—

This existing A-Listed retail unit had been a greengrocer for over 30 years prior to our client purchasing it. The property was in a state of disrepair and our client, specialising in interiors, had a clear vision for the refurbishment. PAD lifestyle provides unique home and fashion brands from across the globe and their space had to allow for constantly changeable displays and lighting.

Many fantastic original features were uncovered during the strip out and have been reinstated and incorporated into the current design. The studio now provides a warm and light filled setting for all of Pad’s high-end brands.

Architect’s insight—

Working closely with the client on this boutique project was great as they had creative ideas but also had to ensure that the space was flexible and practical. The result is a chic, simple backdrop that complements the various brands and designers. The retail unit is located on Howe Street and we would definitely recommend a visit!
