Text description provided by the architects. The design intention for the CAMILLA AND MARC Bondi flagship was to continue to articulate the brand’s vernacular through retail signatures while introducing new elements to shape a fresh experience for the most recent CAMILLA AND MARC retail location. Aspirational by design, the boutique offers a distinct retail atmosphere, with a unique curation of luxurious European materials and finishes, collectively delivering a beautiful visual journey.
The store references a classical plan whereby a sequence of rooms transition the customer from public to private spaces. Materiality presents textural diversity; the tiled floor incorporates custom palladiana terrazzo tiling in volakas, smeraldo quartz, and classic travertine which is bordered by custom stained herringbone timber flooring. Custom green marmorino render is used throughout the store, and black steel fixtures with Italian nubuck leather shelving serve as hanging and display space. Fitting rooms are finished with luxurious Maharam’s velvet curtains and Nicos Zographos leather lounge chairs & bench seats are selected to create a residential tone.
All design elements speak to the principles of the CAMILLA AND MARC brand, upholding qualities of timeless style, design innovation, and a pure approach across every detail. The store continues to be an extension of both founders, Camilla and Marc’s, innate love of architecture, art, and design.
