Troquer Fashion House

Fashion store with photo studio and offices • Mexico City • completion 2016

An existing residence has been transformed into a fashion house comprising a walkable storage-on-view area on the ground floor and a photo studio with head office and working spaces on the upper floor. Behind a matt black exterior an introverted space hidden from the streetlife opens up as a fashion warehouse made of a multilayer metal rack. Golden anodized aluminium bars come together crossways to an orthogonal free-standing grid that reacts to the existing space it inhabites by wrapping around walls and filling in corners. The continuous structure connects various spaces with each other, alternating between dense patterns in some areas and sparse clusters in others. Dresses are presented on custom-made golden hangers and illuminated by vertical light bars especially designed for the space. • Photography: Moritz Bernoully
