Typology : Fruit store
Completed : December 2015
White tiles, stainless steel and translucent polycarbonate panels provide a monotonous canvas for a vibrant plethora of fruits in this fruit store. A mezzanine level is created to make full use of its double-volume space, creating two programmes – retail on ground level and casual dining on the upper level.
Lodged under the mezzanine level is the heart of the fruit store, a walk-in refrigerator that allows customers to access an array of fruits and fruit-based products while in utmost freshness. Bespoke steel baskets hand-weaved with black rubber strings compliment the modularity of the shelving units, allowing the market-like retail space to be reconfigured for any types or sizes of fruits or products.
