The zone at the height from the waist and up till the customer’s eye level, which is used to exhibit the perfumes and the rest products; and the space from the waist down that is serving as storages.

The units are divided in more sections, dedicated to the different products, such as feminine and masculine perfumes, body balms, face creams, after shaves and seasonal products like sun lotion. These exhibition units have storage units’ underneath, for a collaborative product organization.

Chic Essence, is a perfume store in the city center of Larisa. Architectural studio GroundPlan took over the design of the second store, focusing on the chic essence that the design would offer to the customers when choosing their matching perfume.

The client wanted a unique space with an ethereal flow, which enhances the essence of chic. Inspired by the needs of the store for exhibition and storage space, as well as a refilling unit, we divided the space into two zones.

The materials used in the remodeling are mainly cement mortar on the front walls, marble on horizontal surfaces with gold details on the shelving systems. All the particular organic constructions and walls are designed and constructed following organic curved shapes.

Because of the store’s orthogonal shape – with a small side on the facade -, the main design goal was the creation of an ambiental invitation that would attract clients to the interior of the store, while following the perimetrical path throughout the store – instructed by the central aisle – to the back where the cash desk is located for that specific reason. Special focus was given to the light design and the illumination of the space from up to down and vice versa, and mainly towards the products by the perfume bottles that create a mystic ambience.
