mcfarlane green biggar Architecture + Design (mgb) was commissioned to design the interior for this fashion retail store.


The mandate was to develop a store design that supported the simple modern and evolving aesthetic of the brand’s fashion and offer a flexible environment for showcasing clothes, jewelry and accessories.

Obakki_03mgb principals Michael Green and Michelle Biggar and artist Brent Comber collaborated in creating a minimal space for fashion and sculpture reflective of BC.

mgb introduced a few simple design moves to the store in an effort to compliment the elegant aesthetic of the heritage shell space. The design includes a main broken timber counter with intersecting white solid surface folds for jewelry, a tea bar, sales area and storage.

The main display of clothing is handled with a thin suspended white ceiling. The ceiling floats like a thin piece of paper and has custom stainless clothes rods and hangers. Two circular change rooms also incorporate floor to ceiling fabric curtains instead of fixed walls. The effect is a very open store when the change rooms are not in use and a soft fabric counterpoint to the strong clean lines of the store when in use.
