Lacoste 5th Avenue, New York City
The Lacoste flagship‘s prime location on Fifth Avenue meant designers had to create an instant classic. A featured architectural element, the floating, illuminated concrete staircase, offers a 360-degree view. The cantilevered staircase adds a modern sculptural quality to the space with polished stainless steel, low-iron star-fire clear glass balustrades, inset concrete treads, illuminated metal pans, and leather-wrapped hand rails. Subtle brand call-outs include a leather-wrapped handrail reminiscent of tennis racket grip tape, a faux crocodile upholstered wall treatment, and custom crocodile chandelier fixtures. Thirty LCD screens and a new sound system contribute to a lively space. Relocating an elevator and redesigning wall units and fixtures increased the size of the original store by an additional1,000 square feet.
