Just Between Us


Fashionable Grunge

Fun with architecture that looks like it is forever under construction



The project was a tenant fit-up for a prominent retail location on Kitchener’s main City Square. The design of this fashion store incorporated the owner’s vision for a modern, stylish and comfortable atmosphere with the creative use of unconventional materials and innovative designs for display shelves. Inspired by the idea of shopping on a construction site, the design incorporates:

- A custom racking system for display that looks like temporary scaffolding,  

- Exposed pipes, ducts and structural elements of the base building,

- A central display system made of aircraft cable, loose masonry and rusted steel checker-plate.

- A lighting design which enhanced merchandise displays and provided visual interest from the street.


Our Role:

Concept, lighting, display and store design, documentation, construction administration, project management and installation supervision.



With a very tight budget, we met the project scope, time and budget.
