In the wise words of our CEO, Julie Skate…
“For more than 13 years we have worked within a retail space that was generic in its style and with poor wayfinding. It is so refreshing to now have a retail area that truly integrates with our historic building and where the space is utilised to its maximum. Our brief to the designer was to provide a solution for a retail fit-out that would reflect our brand image, showcase the extraordinary works that are made here and to create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors.
As we are displaying a variety of high-quality handmade glass, it required a carefully selected palette of colours and finishes that enhanced the beauty and transparency of glass. The result is a space that embraces the changing needs of the retailing environment while also providing an enjoyable experience for both the consigning artists and the public.
Making our retail space ‘hot to trot ‘in a very competitive market took many threads and much stitching and judging by the response from the public, I think we exceeded expectations.
Skeehan Studios and Josh Hunter Carpentry were a delight to work with and I appreciate that they brought this project in on time and on budget.”
