On Mesones street, one of the best-known, commercial and important streets of Granada, a little store of 50 m2 has been renovated by Spanish architects of A-cero. The client is the Spanish leading brand ‘Camper’, devoted to the exhibition and sale of trendy shoes. It will be Camper’s first store in Granada.
The first important point is the use of the space, as a wide and useful place is needed. A-cero was selected for this work because of its actual, fresh and dynamic design, the keys for Joaquín Torres and Rafael Llamazares’ projects. Each store that Camper opens has its own style and represents an event, depending, among other things, on the designer chosen for the project.
Camper always looks for a new style and concept for their stores, making a different and special place. Other collaborators chosen by Camper have been Olé Armengol, Fernando Amat, Óscar Mariné, Javier Mariscal, Carlos Rolando, Jordi Nogués, Martí Guixé, Shiro Miura and, more recently, in the project Toðer, Jaime Hayón, Alfredo Häberli, Konstantin Grcic, Campana brothers, Memphis group, Bouroullec Brothers, Benedetta Tagliabue, Tokujin Yoshioka, Doshi & Levien, Juli Capella and Tomás Alonso.
Two colors: white and red, typical of the A-cero interior design projects and Camper. The space is open and projected with organic elements like the expositors, made of lacquered wood with white shelves and red faces, having an indirect lighting by LEDs. Also, following the floor shapes, there is a red and white PVC floor. Adding more sculptural values to the complex, in the middle part there is another module curve used as a breach change. To achieve more depth at the rear wall there is a mirror. There is still a space for a warehouse at the back. The front is made of composite panel with red aluminum and the showcase has been made of white and red PVC following the style of the store.
The final result is an interesting fusion between the corporate resources and designs of Camper and A-cero - a special place that improves the market of the area and also to feel the universe of Camper and A-cero.
