Lundi - Dimanche 10am - 10pm
Created in collaboration with long-term collaborators Mlkk, Aesop International Market Place is characterised by relaxed materiality and a fluid dialogue between exterior and interior. Situated in a lively, semi-open retail hub in Honolulu’s Waikiki, its design is an essay in the vernacular of tropical modernism.
The space is split into three distinct zones—an outdoor foyer; a hybrid retail floor, at once indoors and out; and a semi-enclosed back-of-house; each separated by articulated screens of wood-framed glass. Transparent and flexible, they can be adjusted to open or enclose the space dependent on the rhythms of the retail centre.
Douglas Fir timber reclaimed from a 1950s structure on Ford Island, Pearl Harbor defines much of the space, utilised in the ceiling, screens, and counter carpentry.
