This project consisted of renovations to the existing 983 square foot space to accommodate the high-end menswear store. Located at ground level at the corner of Bellair Street, renovations to the interiors included mechanical and electrical upgrades, as well as new finishes and fitments. The finishes were done in wood veneer panelling and stone and polished concrete flooring. Fitments included new lighting fixtures, rack systems and other clothing display furnishings. Renovations to the exterior consisted of reglazing part of the Bellair Street facade and recladding.
The project is recorded through drawings and photographs dating from 1990.
