The project for the men’s clothing brand Benson & Thomas is located at Montevideo Shopping mall.
The first decision was to suspend the deposit and to define a complex section which progressively intercalates double height spaces with compressed spaces. Also the section allows to see the vault and the supporting brick wall made by Eladio Dieste. A big black staircase allows product exhibition and accommodates underneath two fitting rooms.
The window shop, understood as a free-standing showcase, is designed as a piece of furniture that in an ambiguous way defines at the same time that blurs the boundaries between the interior and the exterior of the shop. The closure is defined with a black door, fixed to the wall by concealed Simon’s hinges, which allows it to stay hidden in the same plane of the lateral access wall when open.
