Wow incredible

Holy shit.


One of the very few times nowadays the word “epic” is not overused.

{Loving so much: those iron doors; the modest interior in contrast to some pretty punchy elements like the blue staircase and the gold bases for the tables; also love the midcentury furniture and display; especially loving the domino wall!}

The new store extension on Albemarle Street in London is proof of this. The obvious shift is in the striking shop front facade. The original ground floor Georgian brick design is clad out in iron panels that have an intricate over lapping circle pattern cast in to them. The pattern itself creates a beautiful relief detail and shadowing on the facade and was inspired by a sketch from Paul Smith himself.

The designers, 6A Architects, mention that ‘cast iron forms an understated background’ to the streets of London.

Inside the store the famous stripes can still be found on upholstered furniture alongside interesting feature tables that have solid timber tops that look as though they’ve come straight from the forest floor, sitting on contrasting chunky bronze mirror legs. Nice.

One of the rooms has a distinctly Scandanavian feel to it in the form of its timber fixtures fixed back to the walls. An accessories room has a very clever use of dominos cladding the walls to create an amazing visual effect.

Main rooms in the store have understated but delicately detailed fixtures that sit against a modest back drop of white decorated plasterboard walls. The design team have opted for pop out splashes of colour in picture frames and an imposing blue staircase.

The undeniable stand out feature is that shop front though. Looking like All Saints classy older brother. I can’t wait to visit the store when I’m next back in the UK.

These images document the components used within my project. The first show my own designs of a boat used for collecting whitebait and then a modified cockle dredger that would be used not only to harvest produce but also groom the landscape to be suitable for habitation of my fishing village and town hall. The dredger would collect the sediment it ploughs through on the sea bed, when the tank is full that is the fishermans quota of cockles for the day and he would proceed to deposit the sediment on a sand bar used to protect the now flooded two tree island and leigh on sea. The last to images show a worms eye perspectuve of one of the fisherman cells that would sit above the water similar to the houses on the Isle de Jean Charles (Louisiana basin) and below the cell would hang ropes for growing mussels. The last image depicts one of my docking stations and the cradle system set in place to support my fishing boats at low tide. The boat house would also double up as a fresh food market.
