located in los angeles, california, sits a 65 meter squared eyewear shop. ‘optica dr. york’ designed by mexican firm DCPP arquitectos have extended the street life into this compact commercial space. structured as more than a place to purchase your frames, it exhibits the lenses provoking an action of social gathering and storytelling. a large glass facade opens the venue to showcase the displayed pieces along the perimeter walls leaving the interaction to center around a large table. at the back of the store is where the purchasing and services are positioned for a more intimate customer service.
a prefabricated modular system made of recycled cardboard tubes are cut and assembled in-between MDF panels that can be manipulated and configured for a more personalized interior design. opposite this wall hangs a long horizontal mirror to reflect the exhibition pieces allowing the customer continuous views of the work.
