The showroom is the new Parisian flagship for the Cogolin Carpet Factory located near Saint Tropez in the south of France. The space needed to be rethought across three levels. Each level has a well-defined function to clarify the whole. The large window on the ground floor and call the customer sign from the street, and invite him to go into the shop.
The issues was to recover the double height ceiling to communicate more directly with the mezzanine, and thus give a true height exhibition space for the presentation of carpet showroom focus of attention. The timing of construction brought very low complexity unique to this operation. The project required a true working partnership between the artistic director of the brand, very involved in the project and the agency.
