Stu.dere Oficina de Arquitetura e Design has created a retail space in Portugal that encourages playful exploration.
The project was created in response to a request for an open-space concept, with the intention to create a labyrinthine sense of playful exploration when walking through
Material use of the wire mesh creates a physical but not visual barrier, while elsewhere honeycomb polycarbonate has been chosen for the interior walls, suggesting an industrial appearance in harmony with the microcement-coated floor. To counterbalance this, the ceilings and the office were lined with birch plywood, creating a more intimate feel that allows both the rhythm to be created and the organisation of space, such as furniture layout, to be guided.
