Will work for shoes PART II

First site visit this morning at Wilfred and Enric Shoe Gallery. 
Originally a basement gallery space off Smith St Collingwood, we are playing with the idea of displaying the stock as pieces of art.

Existing main gallery (1024x765)Existing gallery space (1024x804)In Progress

The elements of the space are:
1. the entry – an internal shop front, signage and mannequins STAY TUNED
2. the light box
3. the long wall – a low shelf for shoes along the entire length of the wall STAY TUNED
4. the jewellery box
5. the bluestone wall
6. the main gallery
7. the lounge – for trying on shoes and relaxing STAY TUNED
8. the stockroom – hidden behind the bluestone wall
You can see the PLAN here W&E PLAN

This has been revealed through demolition, it adds texture + depth to the space.

Here the stock will be displayed on custom designed and made plaster and 2pac plinths.
The unfixed nature of these display units means the shop gallery can be rearranged to showcase the latest stock or even stripped right away for a minimal space.
