RPC Fit Out

THINKBIKE

The interior fit-out for this long established Rathmines retailer is focused on customer experience, streamlining shop display and providing smart bespoke furniture which included a concrete customer counter and a mini display workshop.

NOWHERE

Menswear store Nowhere is located at 64 Aungier Street, the oldest merchant street in Dublin. The store design takes the essential fixtures of a clothes store and reimagines them as the structure of the narrative which is the store’s identity; the discourse of masculinity and the culture of clothes.

Doll’s Boutique and Bibi’s Café
