Project summary

At Spiggy, an encapsulating pink hue champions a sophisticated scene, where architectural hardware is akin to exquisite jewels and metals. Drawing upon the expertly crafted objects for display, this showroom radiates the delicate, exquisite, and perennial attributes that ought to adorn the interior of any architecturally designed building, be it architectural hardware, fixtures, or fittings.

A layered approach to product offerings circumvents the possibility of overwhelming patrons upon arrival. Enough product is displayed in a variety of ways, and at differing levels and depths, to incite and enable intrigue. In the concave recesses along the rear wall, two brand features occur. Complimentary convex curves on the corners of the three (3) tiered island are generous, friendly, and welcoming. This uninterrupted display supports a dual-purpose for varying merchandising arrangements, as well as patron seating, for evening events or talks.

Queensland Jury Presentation

Architecture is predominantly visual. We admire the design, we can see the texture, the scale, the light, the shade. Handles, however, are the first touch point to any architectural piece and is therefore vital that both the aesthetics and kinetic qualities of the handle are carefully considered to appeal to our senses. With the last few years seeing a marked shift from in-person retail to online shopping, we worked closely with Alcorn Middleton to curate a showroom that allows customers to experience the function, feel, and materiality of each product, going beyond the traditional aesthetic sales point.
