Aesop Sounds Hannam Signature Store
by Mlkk Studio

Shortlisted for retail interior of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Aesop Sounds Hannam Signature Store by Mlkk studio occupies the ground floor of a newly built small development called Hannam Sounds.

The building has a dominating cold, grey brick facade, which gave Mlkk Studio the opportunity to create a warm and cosy interior using reclaimed red brick and organic shapes to offset the static coldness. Using different materials creates a dialogue with the architecture and effortlessly blends the interior and the exterior, while also creating a visual contrast that draws pedestrians’ attention along the street.

Designer: Mlkk studio
Project: Aesop Sounds Hannam Signature Store
