Umbra Retail

In Collaboration with Figure 3 Interior Designers

Following up on the success of their design for Umbra's head office, Kohn Shnier and Figure 3 join forces to produce this truly unique facility.

A multi layered facade enveloped in custom designed pink extruded polycarbonate, guarantees that the project will be visible from the corner of the nearby retail intersection. The dazzling daylight view of the building transforms at night as the ambient interior lighting and individually placed LED fixtures combine in a spectacular result.

An innovative stepped ramp and stair system opens up the two storey volume to spatially seduce and entice visitors to wander through the whole store.
