[ retail flagship + spa ] - collaboration project

This project involved the renovation of a landmark protected building on the upper east side of Manhattan. Kiehl’s wanted to launch a new men’s spa concept in concert with their new flagship store. The building was in a state of neglect, requiring substantial structural and MEP renovations. The design team worked with acoustical consultants to detail the windows and walls to provide maximum reduction of noise from the intersection outside.

The aesthetic approach for the project drew on Kiehl’s material palette while drawing in outside artists to lend their voices to different rooms. The result is a project with numerous different elements that blend into a cohesive, if eclectic, whole.
