The Esprit store was a challenge in many ways. When built it was to date the largest retail store on Portal del Angel, one of the most frequented commercial streets in Europe. In order to house the required surface area and to meet the company´s retail standards we had to extend the sales are into the first floor. This meant a profound change in the building´s structure and circulation. We worked closely together with the in-house architectural department to achieve a consensus between the brand´s retail standards and local building regulations, spatial complexities, and optimum customer flow throughout the three commercial floors. Found original elements like the ornamented ceilings, brick vaults, and the central atrium, were carefully integrated, lending the store a unique atmosphere
