Interior Awards – Aesop Newmarket wins at Interior Awards.
Patterson Associates has won the Retail Award at the 2017 Interior Awards for Aesop Newmarket.
The judges described the store as: “Intimate and elegant, meticulous and sophisticated with a simple, bright idea as its basis. This space proves that a singular clear concept can often be stronger than large operatic solutions”.
Pattersons was approached in 2017 by the international skincare brand Aesop, which was looking to open a flagship store in Newmarket.
Already recognised for their unique retail spaces, Aesop’s philosophy is focused on the tactile and sensory, and their stores are orientated around the domestic rituals of washing.
Aesop chose a beautiful brick building hidden on the back streets of Newmarket. Originally an old bakery, we used the space to replicate the sensors of a rustic washroom. The renovated space now consists of native timber boarding and weather galvanised steel, giving customers the experience of entering a traditional Kiwi batch, or old colonial washroom.
The award was received by Lead Designer Luke Douglas who attended the ceremony last week at Auckland’s Metropolis Museum.
“We are delighted to have won the award for Retail, we were up against fantastic competition this year and are always grateful when recognised for our work.”
