    Very inspiring!

  • Last year we went to Holland on vacation and made a stop in Maastricht. The bookshop/church is AMAZING! I am really happy I saw it. We even bough a book there :D

    For all those interested in retail – and visiting Paris soon – pop along to new store MERCI.
    Located at 111, Boulevard Beau Marchais – this is a delightful and inspring space. The way retail should be!

    the sanaa shop in new york is really weak, even cheaper and more half baked than the new museum.

    the ayres shop in buenos aires looks pretty cool on photos… but entering the shop you really get mislead by the big gesture of the ramps… you can only walk up to the first floor… the ramp to the second floor leads to a storage room and as a customer you have to step down an unassuming staircase in the back of the store to continue the circuit… maybe it was not intended like this by the architects and the company just uses the premises in an unadequate way… but even this would point to a not quite properly fulfilled job by the architects… though still a nice project…
