In the past, this location was used by a old Modelier workshop, so we decided to base the concept upon this unique feature. Through a series of decorative objects and finishes, we managed to salvage the memories of each room, paying tribute to its original function.
In the old days, the room that now features the bar, was used for the shop area. Having basically the same function, we employed a eclectic style, with big splashes of color and concrete finishes. We kept the original flooring, and replaced the damaged parts with hexagonal tiles.
The rippled mirror behind the counter, reminds of the fluid nature of the fabrics used to create the cloths sold here.
The second room was used as a waiting and fitting area. In our proposal it becomes the Mingle room, where the guests can meet and network. As we tried to retain some of the original elements featured in this old house, we proposed up-cycling the old doors and windows.
The upper floor used to host the actual workshop, but also the storage room. In the former workshop we used old sewing machine standers as a base for designing a beautiful window side long table, and decorated the walls with fashion patterns.
The light fixtures are inspired from the dotted lines found in such drawings, and link the two rooms together.
In the former storage room, we chose a mirror finish for the ceiling, to mimic the chaos one would find in such a space, but also used rolls of fabric for the seating back rests. This room would have been used as a tabletop gaming room.
