This store was planned organically, rather than geometrically, with the goal of placing fixtures in a way that would maximize the ratio of sales area to store circulation. The dark, wood-paneled interiors have been replaced with a new palette of off-white wall surfaces.

Ceilings under adjacent pitched roofs remain open and their wood structures lit to emphasize their dramatic volumes.
