at the center of mexico city, architecture studio zeller & moye has designed a copper and wood infused store for fashion label sandra weil. the interior project is defined by its use of vertically arranged timber slats that create a connected series of semi-permeable wall partitions. this lineal repetition allows customers to slowly discover different areas of clothing presented amid the store’s various layers.
the timber lattice is responsible for manipulating the amount of light able to permeate inside the store, while the fins also provide privacy from the adjacent sidewalk, ensuring that customers are able to try on clothes without being observed. all supplemental elements have been realized in polished copper, with bespoke hangers used to suspend individual dresses.

copper rails run inside the wooden walls, recessing the clothes between the slats and maximizing the store’s floor space. a reflective sidetable is complemented with clusters of copper tube lamps that hang from various points of the ceiling, evenly illuminating the entirety of the volume.
