Working closely with the owners of the boutique, our team established the store’s design from a blank slate providing direction from construction to color palette. As a result, the boutique has been transformed into a bohemian inspired oasis featuring a variety of mixed patterns, organic style furniture, and eclectic accents.

The goal was to create a space that focused on culture, translating the brand’s global story through key design elements, while offering employees a more open and collaborative work environment. Our team led programming, design, and furniture selections, in addition to creating a comprehensive environmental graphics package.

Getting creative with cost effective design solutions, we installed breeze block dividers, new tile, and new lighting to make the space shine.

Acting has a haven to guests after a long day or week of work, the space wraps guests in a simple, clean, and modern aesthetic. Other design elements include a 14-foot-long saltwater aquarium and lots of locally commissioned art that pays homage to the city’s history and the Georgia Aquarium, an iconic attraction just a few steps away.
