A flagship store to reflect the innovation and craftsmanship of a traditional British brand

Urban Salon were architects for luxury shoe brand, Oliver Sweeney's flagship store. The brief was to reflect the innovation and craftsmanship of the product  within the architecture of the store.

The glazed façade is mullion free in order to achieve views deep into the store interior. The façade is the first of its kind. Horizontal steel rods act as wind bracing between the glazing and the building superstructure. 

The store debuted a new store design for the luxury shoe brand which is now being rolled out across its property portfolio.

The project was shortlisted in the AJ Small Projects Award.

'Urban Salon have been incredible to work with. Their award-winning expertise has helped create a destination store, and has given a new focus to our retail environment that is a true extension of our new product design direction'
