Retail design: smoke & mirror

Baku QVB recently re-opened its doors after a full fitout transformation in this awkward 12M x 2M deep site on the highly trafficked lower ground floor. Creating an illusion of space was key to making the new design work for Baku; playing tricks with mirror, introducing a new reflective materials palette and exercising restraint with receding black floors and ceiling.
