Extent and medium:
  • 40 drawings
    1 photograph
Scope and content:
This project series documents the interiors of the Marc Laurent store at 110 Bloor Street West in Toronto from 1984-1986. A project number assigned by the office is not identifiable.
This project consisted of alterations to the interior of the high end retail store prior to the founding of KPMB, by Bruce Kuwabara and Thomas Payne. The design consisted of the removal and replacement of lighting fixtures, walls, change rooms and window displays. The project also included the design of a cash counter and new display furnishings such as mobile units, rack systems and a parallelogram unit. The rack system was made so that retail workers could easily reconfigure the design and locations of the racks based on merchandizing needs. Dark colours were used throughout the store including for the flooring, walls, and furnishings.
The project is recorded through original drawings and a photograph dating from 1988 to around 1989. The drawings consist of a set of sections, plans, details for display and counter furnishings issued for construction, sketch plans, perspectives, and elevations. The photograph shows the finished interiors.
