Soup Clothing Store


Back to projects

A small space at basement level in a fashionable Wellington street has been transformed into a stylish boutique for a high-end recycled clothing store. The design challenges of access, space, window display and natural light are aptly addressed. Visual connections, from street level in and the shop floor out, have been created to provide a stylish retail space with plenty of natural light. A simple palette of materials, white lacquered wall panels, black panel joinery, glass and steel, has been layered over the existing fabric, with many of the original raw finishes, brick and concrete, retained.
