The Webster
by Adjaye Associates

Winner: Large retail interior 2020. The Webster is a curved, pink-tinted concrete building designed for luxury retailer The Webster's flagship store in Los Angeles.

The Webster is a new 11,000 square-foot retail development adjacent to the Los Angeles Beverly Center.

The development establishes a new public space, featuring a digital art wall that will debut bespoke site-specific multimedia works.

Conceived as a landscape of forms, the colour and material palette of The Webster's exterior identity continue into the interior.

Oscillating between varying textures, the interior is akin to a sculptural field punctuated by cast-in place concrete columns and teardrop shaped display plinths, creating a series of vignettes for the merchandise.

Judges comments: The judges said that this project is "something completely fresh and new from the curved shapes and plan to the colour of the concrete."

"Paired with - the lighting effects within the volumes, it creates a sublime environment."
