Helmut lang parfumerie

81 greene street, new york, ny

Gluckman Mayner Architects, 2001

The 3,100 sq. ft. space houses the Designer’s fragrance line. The narrow entry is emphasized by a Jenny Holzer installation, mounted as part of an enameled steel wall. Descending along the wall is a mirror-image double stair leading to the product development offices below. Directly opposite the installation wall, a tall black cabinet recalls the monolithic merchandise boxes at the Flagship store, redefined by a narrow glass-lined slot to complement the products. Visible from the street, a full-height translucent glass wall creates a luminescent backdrop to the product cabinet.
