This store, conceived on two levels, is located in a shopping center. The entry is composed of three black curved walls which span a comfortable hall; niches in these walls provide various spaces. The setting for the collections is underlined by a wooden floor contrasting with a more contemporary note brought by the grey tiling used for the windows. The treatment of colors reinforces the connections between the upper and lower levels: white dominates on both floors; dark colors are used to indicate vertical circulation and red to underline the passage from one universe to another.
