A step into a world of extracted terra-firma, the design for the Pavers Plus Showroom uses an ancient aqueduct concept to prominently showcase the stone products and bridge two existing warehouse spaces of differing form and finish. The design utilises these diverging qualities to create variation in program to appeal to existing trade clients as well as expand opportunities to reach high-end designer and general public markets.
The substantial central wall dissects the space connecting the manufacturing warehouse to the showroom while dividing the spaces into a section dedicated to display and consultation and another to point of sales and offices. The wall extends from inside to outside highlighting the unique indoor/outdoor qualities of stone.
Underneath and perpendicular to this, a long stone sales counter creates a sense of collaboration and continuity between the spaces.
Prominent use of stone is integrated into the showroom design to provide endless inspiration for applications and detailing to engage visitors with the products. Subtle transitions between texture and finish are explored on every surface, creating a vibrant, unassuming and informative space.
Essential to the brief and business, the vast range of products are presented in a coherent and logical way, avoiding use of flimsy and messy off-the-shelf merchandising systems. At the back, the refined showroom transitions directly into the manufacturing warehouse connecting customer’s with product in real time.
The monolithic aqueduct concept gives way to an inviting and dynamic showroom to attract new business and pleasant staff spaces to foster workplace community.Back to Projects
