For the realisation of this project we worked with the MINI team to design the new MINI Paceman store on Chapel Street, Melbourne. Part retail store and part exhibition/studio space it played host to 6 leading international designers working across a range of disciplines from bespoke denim to hand-made men’s shoes from New York.
Within the existing shell of a retail tenancy on Chapel St we designed a series of intersecting surfaces and shapes that collectively create an interior envelope and backdrop for the display of bespoke products. The space is also designed to function as a working studio space for the visiting artists as required.
The car itself features front and centre, emerging from the store in a reflective wedge designed to ensure an interactive interface between pedestrian and vehicle.
