2020 is a high-end optical store situated in the heritage listed Brisbane Arcade.

Overview

2020 is a high-end optical store situated in the heritage listed Brisbane Arcade. The heritage façade is restored with a new frame-less plan infill to maximise retail exposure. The concept 32 sqm footprint grows in scale through the creation of a 2-storey main retail space. The patterned veneer wall to the rear accentuates the length of the shop. The 2-storey void is accentuated by a sloping wall over directing the customer’s eye to the beautiful stain glass windows of the façade.

This impressive volume is the housing for small, beautiful objects. Packing, shelving and drawer systems house the spectacles in a variety of ways. A single, clean sales bench is the place of business. Overall, the shop is perceived as a retail journey from the experience of the large volume to the appreciation of the small, fine instruments of vision.
