Domain carpets & more is a ground floor store located on Ethnikis Antistaseos avenue in Kalamaria, a quite commercial area, with a 13 meter main elevation and 36 meters depth. Τhe owners requested a special facade in order to differentiate themselves, but still friendly and not posh.
The texture and the movement of the textiles and carpets inspired the formfinding process. The final form, that is developed like a cover, is wraping and folding over the building elements. Starting from the exterior, it is passing through the openings in the interior space appearing and disappearing on the roof. The “rib structures” tecnique, that was originally used in aeronautics, served the design and costruction of the wooden installation.
The rest of the interior space is functioning like an easy grey background, able to highlight the plentiful colors and designs of the merchandise. In order to design the special metal constructions that bring the carpets and the textiles we fully cooperated with the owner, whose practical experience helped us reach the optimum function of such a showroom. Everything is in order, ready to be exhibited and fully embodied in the geometry of the space. And we think the users get that feeling.
