A while ago we presented you “Habits, Patterns, Algorithms”, a monograph on Stephan Jaklitsch Architects, a firm with a vast experience in interior design, with hundreds of built works around the world, examples of good usage of materials, and careful attention to detail.

The firm is behind the design of Marc Jacobs stores around the world, and now we got the chance to see a preview of their first ground-up store for the brand, located in Omotesando,, right next to Herzog & de Meuron’s Prada store.

The 3,000sqf project (which already won an Award of Excellence from AIA New York) is a stratified volume, with two dark strips sitting on top of a glass box, acting as a lamp during night.

couple of weeks ago we visited the office to interview Stephan and Mark Gardner (video coming soon!) and got the chance to see some of the facade mock-ups.
