The shop is part of a chain of retail spaces around Greece under the name Shop Guide, this time launched in the commercial district in the city of Lamia, in Central Greece.
The shop was designed as an impressive gallery with orthogonal geometry and occupy over two floors of an existing 70s’ building which operated in the past as
local Clinic. All internal walls of the converted an reconstructed building had to be demolished in order the shop to meet an open plan layout.
On the ground floor, which is arranged in two levels are exhibited women’s clothes and accessories while the first floor is exclusively dedicated to men’s designer label fashion. The vertical dark brown surfaces are offset with the white resin floor, and ceiling system, while the 3d pattern, specially designed for the shop and appears on selected walls, offers an eye-catching compositional feature. txt/gr
