    Interior architecture and retail design for leading Irish retail business Best Menswear. We worked to maximise the features of the space, emphasising the key aspects of service and products, to help grow this reputable business.

    A new retail design experience in Dublin. We acted as interior architects for this leading Irish Menswear business.

    Our brief was to design a new retail offer, responding to a new brand positioning, maximising the features of the space, and emphasising the key aspects of service and products available, to help grow this existing leading Irish menswear retail business. We exposed the stone, and carefully illuminated it at a sharp angle to emphasise texture and relief, and installed ‘floating’ retail panels in bays with LED surround lighting.
        Signage was designed to be movable as needed. The ceiling was designed with multiple levels and heights, and a variety of lighting both direct and indirect, to create a detailed intriguing environment. Simple flexible track lighting can be adapted whenever needed to suit revised layouts. Lighting colour temperature was set at a warm 2700K for comfort and attractiveness. The shopfront was designed to be as open and accessible as possible, suitable for this shopping centre environment.

    JDS worked with us on the Jervis project. We are absolutely delighted with the results and the team were a huge support on all aspects of the project from the creative to the necessary evils of the many certifications. I don’t recommend people lightly, but I can certainly recommend Brian and the team without any hesitation what so ever .

    We understood that the male customer doesn’t want to be on stage - he needs to feel comfortable, hidden, so we created a comfortable carpeted ‘lounge’ area outside the changing rooms for private customer/staff interaction.

    We designed the store from entrance to rear in 3 sections, casual / smart-casual / formal, corresponding with the visitors level of commitment, for example the quick casual purchase stock is at the front, whereas more involved and time consuming purchases like suits are arranged at the rear.
