A.P.C. Downtown LA Store
Retail | Fashion
Los Angeles | CA | USA
2015 | Completed

Set in the burgeoning neighborhood of 9th and Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, and located on the ground floor of a protected historical building, this store once again takes on a unique design, in tune with its locale. The design couples itself with the identity of the edgy, stylish district, and displays those qualities in the spare furnishings - composed of raw materials and tailored assemblies. The facade was reworked, yet maintains the preservation goals set forth for the street. Inside, the displays are both warm and raw, utilizing contrasting materials such as oak, concrete, copper and fiberglass. The high ceilings are punctuated by vertical accent lighting which emanates from the lush fitting rooms.
