This retail space for Tracey Emin is based in Shoreditch very near to Liverpool station. The space itself hadn’t been used in over twelve years and used to be a café frequented by the Krays along with other notable east London types. The space itself was therefore completely run down with holes in the floor,a disused basement and a tired façade.
We refurbished the interior bespoke designing a new desk along with a storage wall and reclaimed oak floor boards. The lighting is set to compliment the artworks and is minimal save for Tracey’s dramatic neon sign which creates a soft glow within the room.
Greys and dark blues highlight the space along with large mirrors.
Overall its a rustic/Shoreditch vibe inkeeping with the area and using lots of reclaimed materials to create a cosy space for a renowned artist.
We also gained planning permission to change the front façade to allow a new separate entrance to the shop diving it from the flat above.
