WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

This impressive project was designed by the MoVe architects practice for the Bestias shoe brand as a retail store.

 

The Bestias XX stands out as a project which needed a lot of ingenuity due to the small space, and the designers had to come up with a way in which you could put 380 shoeboxes without transforming the 12 square meter space into a storage room.

 

There are two employees and the space restriction had to become the image of the shop so the designers decided to use the shop image as a defining part of the shop, building 140 wooden X’s that were inserted into plywood sheets over a perforated grill that had the size of a shoebox at a 45 degree angle.

 

The plywood sheets are hung on the walls and they create the façade of the store supported by the store logo. To decrease the building time, the store was manufactured using two types of plywood sheets that were cut using a CNC router and then the pieces were assembled together.
